Make the most of your ENDO experience with Science Pathways. Each “pathway” includes sessions within a specific topic to help bring together related topics in an easy to follow lineup. This year’s science pathways are focused on G-protein-coupled receptors, neuroendocrinology, and nuclear receptors.
“These are always topics that are at the ENDO meeting,” said Jenny Visser, PhD, basic science chair of the Annual Meeting Steering Committee. “What we’ve done this year is grouped basic science sessions together and scheduled them in dedicated rooms with oral sessions in that same or adjacent rooms. By bringing them together, structuring them, we hope we can enhance networking and make it attractive for the basic scientists in this field.”
Science Pathways in Neuroendocrinology
Neuroendocrinology has been transformed from a hypothalamus-pituitary-target-feedback paradigm to a science with no frontiers. Science Pathways in Neuroendocrinology will explore technological advances and new research on neuronal control of body functions peripheral hormone modification of brain function.

Science Pathways in Nuclear Receptors
Last year marked the 30th anniversary of the cloning of the first member of the nuclear receptor family, the estrogen receptor. Since then, discovery of additional members, as well as orphan nuclear receptors, has led to an increased understanding. Science Pathways in Nuclear Receptors showcases their role and regulation in health and disease.
