22nd European Endocrinolgy Congress (online)
5-9 September 2020, online.
The European Society of Endocrinology is pleased to introduce e-ECE 2020, our first digital Congress which will take place from 5-9 September 2020. As you are aware the physical ECE 2020 Congress is unable to take place due to COVID-19. Meetings like this are vital as they allow our community to come together to share research and best practice. We have created e-ECE 2020 to support the endocrine community and enable your members to access relevant, timely research and education by bringing e-ECE 2020 as a virtual Congress directly into their homes or place of work.
We understand that everyone has many demands on their time right now, so we have streamlined the programme. Attendees can build a personalised programme from the easily digestible blocks based around our Focus Areas. Delegates can view sessions live for CME points or watch on demand (on ESE On Demand) anytime. We are working to create a full Congress experience; delegates can explore the virtual exhibition and stay-up-to date by visiting the ECE Hub and industry satellite symposia as well as listen to world-renowned experts, visit e-Posters and see the latest hot topic research.
This year, we have worked tirelessly with our eight Focus Area Leads to ensure our streamlined programme still has a wealth of content for every area of endocrinology. Here are some of the programme highlights that they feel you shouldn’t miss:
Harnessing the microbiome in metabolic disease
“The role of the microbiome in metabolic disease is one of the hottest topics in the field of endocrinology today. This is why my personal highlight is: Plenary 3: Harnessing the microbiome in metabolic disease.” (Daniela Cota, Basic Science Lead for the Diabetes, Obesity, Metabolism & Nutrition).
Clinical Endocrinology Trust Lecture
“We are looking forward to the Clinical Endocrinology Trust Lecture given by Richard Eastell. Postmenopausal osteoporosis is a very common disease and is of great interest to clinicians and researchers alike.” (Wim van Hul and Lars Rejnmark, Calcium and Bone Leads).
Environmental disruptions of the thyroid hormone axis?
“I am very interested in this Meet The Expert Basic Scientist session on environmental disruptions of the thyroid hormone axis. Endocrine disruptors are constantly coming up as important in both basic and clinical science. It is a puzzle which needs to be resolved, this session should provide part of the picture.” (Manuel Tena-Sempere, Clinical Lead for Reproductive Endocrinology).
The e-ECE 2020 mini programme book can be found here.
The field of endocrinology is developing quickly, which is why we have re-opened the abstract submission for a Hot Topic session. We are looking for new, novel data and emerging areas of study, including COVID-19 research, which will be included as a session in the main programme.
