What we do

The Physiological Society of New Zealand (PSNZ) was initiated in 1972 by Professor John Hubbard (University of Otago) and Professor Jack Sinclair (University of Auckland).

The Society currently has around 100 members. They work across research fields that range from functional genomics to computational physiology and they make important contributions in the trend toward integration that is now increasingly important in the medical and biomedical sciences.

PSNZ aim to enhance the quality of physiological and related research in New Zealand by providing an annual conference to optimise exchange of information between scientists and nurture the research abilities of postgraduates — the research scientists of the future

The next AGM will be held at MedSci in Nelson 29th-31st August, 2016.

Annual General Meetings

Since 2004, our annual meeting has been held within the MedSciNZ Conference which is also attended by biomedical and clinical scientists working in other closely related disciplines.

Our 2016 annual conference and AGM will take place in Nelson in late August 2016. The abstracts, together with occasional review articles or invited “perspectives”, have been published in the Proceedings of the Physiological Society of New Zealand since 1981.
