We are delighted to announce a very special celebratory event that will be taking place in September hosted by Discipline of Physiology.

This year marks an important milestone for Physiology as a separate and distinct entity within Trinity College Dublin, the University of Dublin. We are celebrating 100 years as an established academic discipline, and contributor to global research. To mark this momentous occasion for Physiology and Trinity, we are hosting a special 1-day centenary symposium Physiology@100: Past, Present and Future that will take place on Thursday 1st September 2022 in the Edmund Burke Lecture theatre, on Trinity’s Historic Main Campus.

We hope you will join us on the day to celebrate our history and research, with a schedule of talks that boasts a host of National and International physiologists covering a variety of topics from our broad spectrum of research areas, along with newly emerging talents bringing us into the future.

We will be getting nostalgic with a special guest panel for a Historical Reminiscences of Physiology and we very much hope you will join in with these conversations, sharing your own memories.

If you have any memories you would like to share with us ahead of the event, please do get in contact via email to or follow us on social media and include the #trinityphysiology100.

Event to be opened by Trinity's Provost Prof Linda Doyle with a special keynote talk by The Physiological Society's 2022 Paton Prize Lecturer Dr David Miller (Glasgow University).
