Physiological Society named by I.P. Pavlov – one of the oldest and known scientific societies in Russia. In 2017 a 100th anniversary of its foundation was celebrated. First meeting of the Society took place in April, 1917 in St. Petersburg, and it was named I.M. Sechenov Russian Physiological Society. During 100 years that passed the Physiological Society became one of the most respected between scientific communities. A big part of the respect is due to Presidents of the Society, all of them outstanding personalities. The first founding President was I.P. Pavlov (1917-1936). For many years L.A. Orbeli inspired Russian physiologists (1937-1950, and 1956-1958). Without any doubt, a huge contribution was made by O.G. Gazenko who was able to rule the Society from 1983 till 2004, through the worse time for science in Russia. In 1993 O.G. Gazenko held a Congress and reinstated the Society in new Russia.
