Academic contribution to field recognised by Physiological Society

Prof Paul Squires has been elected as Fellow of the Physiological Society (London).  The Fellowship recognises his continuous and active service to physiology over a 25 year period, and is based on research excellence and ongoing studies that examine how cells communicate with each other to maintain function in health and disease.

Prof Squires joined the University of Lincoln in 2014 and has published in excess of 75 research articles in the area of diabetes and endocrinology. As lead for the new Diabetes, Metabolism & Inflammation (DMI) Research Group at the School of Life Sciences, Prof Squires has been instrumental in making diabetes research a major strength within Life Sciences at Lincoln. The DMI Group is generously supported by external grants from Diabetes UK, the European Foundation for the Study of Diabetes (EFSD) and the Diabetes Research & Wellness Foundation (DRWF) and its members work with a number of Charities and Societies to promote patient participation & involvement in research designed to impact on the end user.

The Physiological Society brings together over 3,500 scientists from over 60 countries. Since its foundation in 1876, its Members have made significant contributions to our knowledge of biological systems and the treatment of disease.

The Society promotes physiology and supports those working in the field by organising world-class scientific meetings, offering grants for research, collaboration and international travel, and by publishing the latest developments in leading scientific journals, The Journal of Physiology, Experimental Physiology and Physiological Reports. The Society also runs events for the general public on how physiology relates to everyday life, and for students who may be considering physiology as a career.  For more information please visit www.physoc.org.
