ESPE Science Symposium 2020 – Congenital adrenal hyperplasia: from molecular medical research to clinical application


Dear colleague,

We cordially invite you to the second ESPE Science Symposium which will take place on October 30th and 31st, 2020 and will be hosted at Radboud university medical center, Nijmegen, the Netherlands.

The ESPE science symposium aims to promote the development of an interactive network between clinicians and researchers, helping to reduce the gap between research and patient care. It will also provide the means to disseminate new scientific knowledge in the community of paediatric endocrinology. The symposium is organized every two years by a Local Organizing Committee (LOC) selected through an application process by the ESPE Science Committee.

Its focus will be ‘Congenital adrenal hyperplasia: from molecular medical research to clinical application’ and it will be supported by the Endo-ERN and the ESPE DSD Working Group.

The symposium will consist of interactive lectures by renowned scientists in the field with the aim of covering the main topics in CAH. We invited top clinical and basic researchers from all over the world with main research focus on CAH. There will also be discussions and networking time in the group.

We look forward to welcoming you in Nijmegen in 2020.

On behalf of the programme organizing committee,
Hedi L. Claahsen – van der Grinten, MD, PhD
Pediatric Endocrinologist, Associate Professor
Head of the Department of Pediatric Endocrinology
Chair Radboud DSD centre
