THE MISSING INLINE IMAGE.GIF??!! Please provide us with a suggested image or images related to Thermophysiology... send them to me ( as hqx enclosures if you have this capability. Thanks
Be patient! This homepage is under construction.... always!

This is an activity of the Commission on Thermal Physiology of the International Union of Physiological Sciences (IUPS), the organization that groups the national physiological societies of all the countries in the world. Each commission of the IUPS is charged with representing a specific subject area within the broad field of physiology, e.g., cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, etc. The principal responsibilities of the commissions are to survey the entire field of its specialty and to foster all its activities (including those outside of the purely medical sphere), world-wide. This includes organizing and coordinating scientific meetings, providing encouragement and support to those physiologists in the world whose resources may keep them somewhat at the margins, and promoting graduate and postgraduate education through the preparation and/or sponsorship of appropriate texts, reviews, etc.

The purpose of this Information Browser is to further these aims as they may pertain, specifically, to Thermal Physiology. It was developed at the Department of Physiology & Biophysics of the University of Tennessee, Memphis, College of Medicine, 894 Union Avenue, Memphis, Tennessee 38163, USA. Every user working or simply interested in the field is cordially invited to contribute information relevant to any of the categories listed below:

Each page maintained by this Thermophysiology WWW Server has a "URL-minder" personal robot service which you may use. By entering your email address in the space provided, anytime a change occurs on this page or any page on this server where the "URL-minder" is provided, an email message will be delivered to you informing you of the change. Registering on this page alone WILL NOT! register you for any of the other linked pages. However, if you register on this page whose date will change with changes to any of the linked information, you will be informed that a change has occurred on this server.

International Directory of Thermophysiologists
This is an OLD directory. Please see the "search" and "review" links below to see if your updated information is present..

We would like to thank Dr. Refinetti from William and Mary College, Williamsburg, VA, for providing the primary body of information contained in this list. Currently the name, institutional affilliation, geographic location, and areas of research speciality are provided. Soon a fill-out form will be provided so that the those on this list or those wishing to be included on this listing will have an opportunity to submit corrections, additions, e-mail addresses, and/or URLs to WWW pages. {Old version of the directory}

A new database style directory is being constructed and the above linked file which now provides this information is being phased out. This new information resource is a "true" database which can be queried in a normal database fashion. "Normal database fashion" means that you can perform a search on mulitple criteria, i.e., name, research interest, country, etc., or you can look at a list of all those who are listed on this database. To perform this task we are using Zyview 2.1 which is a www oriented database system Use the two links below to tailor your search or review of this directory.

The Thermophysiology discussion group is looking for network leaders to organize subtopic discussions. If a subtopic discussion becomes large enough, a separate discussion group will be created.

Schedule a "Thermo WebChat" for real-time professional interaction. More about this later.

Welcome to the Thermophysiology place in Cyberspace. After you have had some time to check us out, we would be pleased if you would come back to this location and sign our Guest Book. Click on the book image below to bring up the book (form).
