Join The Physiological Society to celebrate Physiology Friday!

We call on everyone to hold exciting outreach activities on the last friday of Biology Week to help showcase the amazing world of human and animal bodies.

The Physiological Society is particularly keen to support engagement with young people when they are making key decisions about physiology. Outreach and public engagement activities have a huge impact on your professional development. They are also more and more important when demonstrating impact to funders, a key part of the Research Excellence Framework.

What should I do?

Absolutely anything to spread your passion for the science of life! Examples include:
  • Hold an open day in your lab
  • Put on an exhibition or science festival
  • Organise a theatrical show or stand up comedy
  • Organise a public lecture or debate
  • Visit schools or local community groups
  • Bake a cake
  • Write a poem
  • Start a social media campaign

How can The Physiological Society support you?

Take a look at their outreach resources page for ideas of activities that you could run on Physiology Friday, along with details of free merchandise you can request.


The Physiological Society announce the winners of the annual BioBakes competition on Physiology Friday. Entrants are invited to combine their passion for physiology and baking to create an informative “slice” exhibiting their chosen area of physiology.

Entries are now open. For more information check out the BioBake event page.
