Pakistan Physiological Society

The Official Registered Society of Physiologists of Pakistan


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. Last conference of the PPS (PPS-14) was held at the University of Sindh, Jamshoro. The next Biennial Conference of the PPS (PPS-15) is scheduled to be held in Multan around October 2016.

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 being. SAAP has become representative body of the South Asian Physiological Societies and is also holding its Biennial International Conferences. The next (5th) Conference will be held in Nepal on 10-12 November 2016.

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 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.

Dr. Saleh Muhammad Tareen

It is announced with great sorrow that Dr. Saleh Muhammad Tareen, Associate Professor Physiology, Bolan Medical College Quetta, and PPS Councillor from Balochistan has passed away to his heavenly home! He had a sudden heart attack on 16th November 2015 and left his grieved family and friends for ever.

Dr. Saleh Tareen has been the Balochistan Councillor of the PPS for consecutive 8 terms. His demise has created a huge vacuum in the PPS. He was a polite, sober, and soft-hearted person, always loved by his friends and intimates.

Besides his family members, he left his students and the Pakistan Physiological Society mourning with eyes filled with tears and broken hearts. May Allah bless the departed soul with a high place in Jannah, Aameen! summ Aameen!!
