We are deeply shocked at the barbaric unprovoked invasion of Ukraine. Our thoughts are with you in your hour of need. On a more practical level, we will do everything we can to support physiologists in Ukraine to come to the UK with our sponsorship. The British have always stood by our European friends over the decades in their hour of need during persecution. That time has sadly arrived again for us to help the physiologists of Ukraine.
- President of the Physiological Society and Head of the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, University of Oxford, Professor David Paterson


The University of Oxford has a dedicated webpage about the University's response to the invasion, as well as advice and support for staff and students impacted. Visit University response to the invasion of Ukraine.
