APS and its members advocate on Capitol Hill and elsewhere to raise the profile of issues that affect scientists and their work. Here you’ll find news and information on our focus areas—including federal research funding and animal research—and learn more about how you can speak up on behalf of science.






 We’ve developed a suite of resources—from refresher courses to symposia to introductions to researchers and physiology careers—designed with physiology teachers and learners of all ages in mind. Explore more from our resource library.






We believe that a diverse scientific community is a strong scientific community. APS provides opportunities for researchers traditionally underrepresented in science and champions efforts to build truly inclusive STEM environments.
