It is my great pleasure to invite you to the 98th Bi-annual Meeting of the Deutsche Physiologische Gesellschaft (DPG) from September 30th to October 2nd, 2019. This is a joint meeting with our colleagues from the Austrian Physiology Society (APS) and Life Science Switzerland Physiology (LS2), and it will take place in Ulm, the birth town of Albert Einstein. The location of the meeting is at the main campus of Ulm University, up on a hill called “Oberer Eselsberg”.
The scientific program will include plenary lectures (held by Frances M. Ashcroft, David Clapham, Karl Deissenroth, Thomas Jentsch and Erwin Neher), oral symposia, and poster sessions, and it will cover the wide spectrum of cutting-edge physiology. We will take special care to provide many opportunities for presenting and discussing your research. “The Young Physiologists” will be actively involved in the Congress, to provide young academics with opportunities for presentation and discussion of their findings with experts in the field. A didactic lecture will address the important issue of teaching Physiology to students - our future in Physiology. And a public lecture, held by Dr. Mark Benecke, will hopefully further embrace students and community.
The University of Ulm has just celebrated its 50th anniversary, and it was ranked in its anniversary year best young University in Germany, and place 8th world-wide (THE). It is a wonderful place for study and research. But Ulm has so much more to offer - besides the Ulmer Münster, the church with the tallest steeple in the world. Let’s climb up!
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Ulm.
