Endocrine Society Preview: The 2018 meeting will be ‘a journey to innovation’


 

Attendees at the upcoming Endocrine Society annual meeting in Chicago can expect many of the scheduled sessions to be practice changing, according to Ann Danoff, MD, clinical chair of this year’s meeting program.

“It’s going to be an absolutely fabulous program. I always encourage clinicians to attend the plenaries to see where the field is going. And we are going big.”

Endocrine Society President Lynnette K. Nieman, MD, will lead off the plenary sessions on March 17, by presenting awards to six visionary investigators. Noteworthy among these will be the work of Diana Lynn Blithe, PhD, National Institutes of Health, for her research on male contraception. Dr. Blithe will speak about what’s in the clinical pipeline and what direction future research will take.

The second plenary session has an intriguing title – Rhythm and Blues. This session will cover circadian rhythmicity, which is, coincidentally, the research area of the three joint winners of the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine.
