Aims of the ISGP
The broad scientific spectrum of the International Society of Gravitational Physiology emphasizes gravity, life and physiology as its anchors. Gravitational physiology is considered to include the effects of the magnitude and direction of the gravitational force environment on cells, integrated physiological systems and behavior/performance of humans, animals and plants. The effects of microgravity, space radiation and other adverse environments during space flight are a major emphasis. Also, high sustained gravitational forces, chronic acceleration, vibration, impact and various forms of simulated microgravity are also included in the Society’s purview. Moreover, evolutionary consequences of gravity and the role of gravity in the manifestation of scale effects in animals and plants are major considerations of our Society.
The International Society of Gravitational Physiology holds an annual meeting that allows the presentation of original experimental research on subjects relevant to the field of gravitational physiology
History of the ISGP
ISGP was crated in 1979 and was at the beginning joined to the International Union of Physiological Sciences (IUPS).
In 1994, ISGP became independent.
Words from the chair person
The International Society for Gravitational Physiology was founded in 1979 and since then The Council of Trustees is very motivated and engaged to disseminate knowledge of the science of every aspect of Gravitational Physiology.As the Chair of the Society. I welcome you to join our Society to engage in and further nurture the field of Gravitational Physiology. Further it is my great pleasure to invite you to attend our annual meetings. This year’s meeting will be held from June 18-22, 2018 in Noordwijk, The Netherlands. An exciting series of named lectures will be delivered by world-renowned experts in the field. On behalf of the International Society for Gravitational Physiology, I look forward to seeing you in Noordwijk.
Dr Martina Heer
