We are delighted to welcome you to Europhysiology 2022! The meeting will take place in the beautiful and cosmopolitan city of Copenhagen, Denmark, from September 15th-18th. Copenhagen drips with a rich history and array of cultural highlights, from Shakespearian castles to modern Danish architecture and design. Copenhagen is also ranked one of the happiest cities in the world, and known far and wide for its “hygge” (cosiness), bicycles, and innovative urban living. Danes do take their science seriously, and Danish physiologists are no exception. Indeed, the renowned physiologists Christian Bohr, who fathered not only the Bohr effect but also the physicist Niels Bohr, August Krogh, Bodil Schmidt-Nielsen, Jens Christian Skou, and Hans Ussing have all hailed from Denmark.
Europhysiology 2022 marks the continuation of an ongoing and successful partnership between The Physiological Society, The Scandinavian Physiological Society, The German Physiological Society, and the Federation of European Physiological Societies. The series of meetings was initiated with an excellent kick-off in London in 2018. The cancelling of the 2020 meeting in Berlin, as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, has made us even more eager to move Europhysiology 2022 forward with the highest quality programme we can muster. We look forward to welcoming scientists at all stages of their careers; from students to postdocs, principal investigators, and established leaders within Physiology who will inspire us through invited lecturers. Importantly, the first day of the conference (September 15th) will feature pre-meetings of “Special Interest Groups” within more specific topics, providing even more scientific depth. Thus, we promise a unique scientific experience, unparalleled in our field.
Please mark your calendars and plan on joining us.
Velkommen til København!
