Summary: Ohio Physiological Society meeting held at Wright State University
The 20th
annual meeting of the Ohio Physiological Society was held on October 27th and
28th
of 2005 at Wright State University. The meeting began Thursday evening with an
anniversary reception sponsored by the Department of Neuroscience, Cell Biology &
Physiology, the College of Science & Mathematics and the Boonshoft School of Medicine. This
anniversary celebration allowed the many out of town and local members to unwind from their
busy day, renew acquaintances and meet the featured speaker.
Dr. Michele Wheatly, Dean of the College of Science & Mathematics at Wright State
University, delivered the welcome address for the meeting. In her address, she told of her own
experience in attending a scientific meeting early in her education and how that motivated her
toward physiological research. Her message underscored the core motivation for the society's
activities, namely to present recent scientific findings while continually striving to inspire
student engagement in research activities. A brief history of the society was presented by
Dr. Peter Lauf, the first president of OPS, recounting the spirit of the original organizers for
starting the society. Several of these 22 founding members were in attendance. In particular, the
OPS would serve to enhance and advance the field of physiology including all of molecular,
cellular, organ and organismal as well as basic and applied disciplines of research. Dr. Lauf also
provided highlights from the prior annual meetings as it has traveled to various sites around Ohio
