Professor Sue Wray
Professor Susan Wray from the University’s Department of Molecular and Cellular Physiology has become the President-Elect of the Federation of European Physiological Societies (FEPS).
FEPS promotes and fosters the exchange and diffusion of concepts and information between physiologists and their societies in the European region.
It instigated pan-European physiological meeting on a biennial basis to help advance knowledge in the disciplines relating to physiology and to support training programmes in physiology. A vibrant early career researcher’s day precedes every FEPS meeting.
FEPS grew rapidly after it was founded in Prague in 1991. It now comprises 27 national Constituent Societies and helps them to facilitate the dissemination of information concerning the activities of the member societies.
Professor Wray said: “The FEPS meetings are important as they provide a meaningful way for physiologists from across Europe to meet and connect. This is a useful opportunity to provide friendly competition to the dominance of North American meetings.
“At this time of uncertainty surrounding future scientific collaborations across Europe, I am honoured that our European scientific community is happy to have asked a Brit to lead it from 2019. I am looking forward to playing a strong role in promoting FEPS, physiology, and translational research during my Presidency”
Professor Wray will begin her four year term as FEPS President at the organisation’s meeting in Bologna, in the summer of 2019.
The three other members of the executive team are working in Germany, Norway and Turkey. For more information about FEPS please visit http://www.FEPS.org
