We are excited to announce that the 28th Annual Iowa Physiological Society (IPS) Meeting will be held on December 8th and 9th, 2023, at Des Moines University in Des Moines, IA. The meeting program will be organized over 1.5 days (Friday afternoon and Saturday morning/afternoon) and offered as a hybrid meeting. However, we expect in-person attendance from most of the participants.
This meeting is an excellent venue for physiologists and trainees from Iowa and nearby states to present and discuss their scientific findings and ideas and to network with other educators, scientists, and clinicians. We have put together an exciting program. This year’s meeting will feature two keynote speakers doing cutting-edge research in their respective disciplines.
We are excited to host Dr. Warren Wiechmann, Associate Dean of Clinical Science Education and Educational Technology and Professor of Clinical Emergency Medicine at UC Irvine Health School of Medicine. Dr. Wiechmann will talk about the use of games and gamification in education.
We are also delighted to have Dr. Jennifer Pluznick, Associate Professor in the Physiology Department at Johns Hopkins University, as a keynote speaker. Dr. Pluznick will present her research on gut microbial metabolites and blood pressure regulation.
A focus on abstract-based presentations will provide ample opportunities for the participation of students and trainees. Awards for the best poster and oral presentations will be presented Saturday before the IPS annual business meeting. I cordially invite you to attend this exciting event on behalf of the IPS Executive Board and Organizing Committee!
Thank you in advance for sharing this announcement with colleagues as you see appropriate. I look forward to seeing you at the meeting.

Scientists, clinician-scientists, educators, students, and postdoctoral fellows from undergraduate and graduate institutions in Iowa. You do not need to be a member of the Iowa Physiological Society to attend.

The Iowa Physiological Society Annual Meeting provides an opportunity for scientists, clinician-scientists, educators, students, and postdoctoral fellows to share their physiology research and education findings and to engage in a robust discussion of ideas. Abstracts should represent original work in the areas of physiology research and education. Presenters will be required to register and attend the conference.
Abstracts should be submitted in one of the following presentation categories:
- Poster: Poster presentations allow authors to share and discuss the results of their work with conference attendees and address the same topic categories as oral presentations. Poster presentations may represent works in progress.
- Oral: Presenters will be selected from the submitted abstracts. Oral presenters are also requested to present a poster.
The authors will be responsible for poster printing costs. Supplies will be provided on-site to display your poster.
DMU faculty and students only - You are encouraged to print your poster through Brand on Demand. The estimated cost is $72 per poster.
