The vacuum created by loss of a shining star in the field of Physiology will not be filled for a long time ahead. The Members and Executive Council of Pakistan Physiological Society share this loss with the grieved family and pray to Almighty to give us strength to bear this great loss.


Pakistan Physiological Society is the official, registered society of physiologists of Pakistan. It came into existence as a result of the efforts of our peers at Aga Khan Medical College, and University of Karachi. Since then, the Society has been holding its Biennial Conferences all over Pakistan, providing an excellent platform to young researchers for presenting their original research work. Some of these conferences have been attended by foreign scholars too.

Pakistan Physiological Society is an Adhering Body of International Union of Physiological Sciences (IUPS) and is a member of Federation of the Asian and Oceanian Physiological Societies (FAOPS). At the 11th Biennial International Conference of the PPS at Islamabad, the South Asian Association of Physiologists (SAAP) came into existance. SAAP has become representative body of the South Asian Physiological Societies and is also holding its Biennial International Conferences.

As an effort to promote good research by comparatively young physiologists, some awards have been introduced by various donors. Professor Alamdar Hussain Award to Best Paper presented by a young physiologist up to Assistant Professor level, and Dr. Attique Younas Sheild to Best Student presenter were first introduced at the 5th Biennial International Conference of the PPS held at Ayub Medical College, Abbottabad, and created a new spirit of competition among the physiologists, teacher and the taught. Pakistan Physiological Society is publishing its scientific journal, Pakistan Journal of Physiology (PJP) since 2005. It is famous among the physiologists of the region due to the scientific work published in it. The PJP is now published quarterly, online and on paper, and is on Open Journal System (OJS).
