Stanford Pre-Renal Initiative Applications Now Open!

Summer 2023

Our purpose

The purpose of the California Society of Physiologists is to promote the discipline of physiology; advance physiological research and teaching; facilitate teaching and research forums for students and young investigators, and encourage interaction and fellowship among individuals interested in the physiological sciences and related fields within the state of California.

To achieve this, we come together at events to share our research, provide a network of mentorship for our students and young members, and bring science to the public with outreach events (venues ranging from local K-12 schools, festivals and convention centers).
