About Us

The Graduate Association for Students in Physiology is an elected group of graduate students from the Department of Physiology. Our responsibility is primarily to enhance the experience of students in the physiology graduate program, and to encourage interactions between graduate students and with faculty members, whether it is through social events or academic activities like the annual Frontiers in Physiology Research Symposium. If you have any questions or comments, email us at gasp.physiology@utoronto.ca or use our contact form under Contact .
To learn more about what we do, read our GASP constitution (will open pdf).
