Society of
General physiologists

Welcome to the Society of General Physiologists



SGP was founded in 1946 "to promote and disseminate knowledge and interest in the subject of general physiology...." Our international membership is made up of nearly 1000 career physiologists who work in academia, government, and industry. We have become known for promoting and nurturing research related to membrane transport and ion channels; membrane structure, regulation, and dynamics; and cellular contractility and molecular motors.

SGP hosts its annual meeting and symposium at the Marine Biological Laboratory every September. The meetings are organized by experts in their fields, and always enlist speakers highly regarded in their areas of expertise, often world-renowned.

Our meetings offer a unique opportunity for physiologists at all stages of their careers to interact and discuss science in a very intimate atmosphere. With typically not more than 200 participants, SGP symposia are small enough to foster maximal discussion and interaction.

The symposia include talks on the year's topic, complemented by an average of 60 - 70 poster presentations on all topics of physiology.
