Video highlights from IUPS Congress

An interview with Russell Foster features in the VOX videos
Voices from Oxford was invited by the President of IUPS, Denis Noble, who is also a founder and presenter for VOX, to record some of the highlights from the World Congress held in July 2013 at the International Convention Centre in Birmingham and hosted by The Physiological Society. Attended by over 3000 scientists from around 100 countries worldwide, this is the Olympic games of physiological science. The intellectual peaks of physiology and medical science are here. VOX is adding to its already extensive series of medical science videos.
If it was ever true that physiology had moved off from centre stage,
it is now coming back with a vengeance (The President’s Lecture)
