After Physioma 2019 (October 2019) and the 1st Luso-Brazilian Symposium of Physiology shared with the Brazilian Society of Physiology (October 2020), our Society prepared several initiatives for this year - check the ruler "events&news"




The I Luso-Brazilian Meeting of Physiology took place between 2 and 8 October of this year, an event that intended to mark a fraternal, cultural and scientific relationship between these two sister societies, until now never achieved.

Considering also the pandemic context in which this achievement took place, the historical and civilizational significance embedded in this message is even greater. The determination to bring together knowledge in Physiology in these two extremes of the Atlantic, sharing the same language, the same culture, the same objectives. It will certainly be the first of many achievements.

The realization of this event involved partners of extraordinary relevance in the world of Physiology, in addition to the broad government support (federal and state) received .

The opening session of the I Luso-Brazilian Physiology Meeting (on the 2nd) as well as the 55th Annual Congress (on the 4th) were attended by our Chairman Luis Monteiro Rodrigues who reiterated our thanks to the organization, especially the SBFis Management, and to everyone who made this enormous achievement possible.

The 55th Annual SBFis Congress had more than 900 participants and about three hundred paper submissions. Portuguese Physiology had a dignified representation, involving plenary sessions and two workshops, as follows :
