What do we aim?

  1. Improve interaction and collaboration between everybody who is standing at the beginning of a career within endocrinology, such as master students, PhD students, postdocs, young medical docters and internal medicine specialists, gynaecologicsts, pediatricians and clinical chemists in training with interest in endocrinology.
  2. Organize a yearly conference that consists of presentations of research and case reports (after abstract submission) by young participants as well as lectures by well-known (inter)national invited speakers and workshops about career, publication and grant application.
  3. Organize a session at the yearly Dutch Endocrine Meeting where 3 young talents get the opportunity to give a longer presentation of 25 minutes
  4. Keep in touch with other organizations of young endocrinology researchers such as the European Young Endocrine Scientists (EYES, the young delegation of the European Society of Endocrinology).

Who are we?

The Young NVE consists of nine enthusiastic PhD students, postdocs and medical doctors who work in the field of endocrinology. They originate from the 8 medical centers in the Netherlands so that our countrly is broadly covered. These nine members form the JNVE board. We hope that many enthusiastic young endocrinology professionals will join us the comings years so that a versatile and inspiring group will be formed.

Korevaar), neuro-endocrinology (by Prof Dr S.E. la Fleur), and adipose tissue and inflammation (by Dr G. Gossens). We will additionally take a step back from science itself, and focus on the preforming of science, with a talk by Dr M.L.A. Jongsma on the workload in research.

Registration costs are €110 (and €160 for non-NVE members), including diner and social evening programme. When you wish to sleep at the hotel, registration costs are €160 (and €210 for non-NVE members). We have a discount for master students (€75 for participation in full conference).

JNVE congres 2017

JNVE conference 2017 photos online!

On October 27th and 28th 2017, the fourth JNVE congress took place at the Holiday Inn Hotel in Leiden. We were very pleased to see so many participants!
24 abstracts were presented on various subjects. Again we were surprised (and proud) by the high quality of research in so many fields within the endocrinology in our country. Young researches presented their own research and five invited speakers gave very inspiring presentations. Prof. Ron de Kloet and Pim the Ronde gave very interesting overviews on the psychoneuroendocrinology of stress and steroid abuses in athletes. Dr Carmelo Quarta (Helmholtz Zentrum Munich) flew over from Germany to give us the latest update on the role of the endocannabinoid system in our metabolism. dr Baptist Trimbos ‘hit’ the audience with an inspiring talk titled “how to give a talk with impact”.

In the evening, tension increased and all competitive skills were used to win the famous JNVE pubquiz. Dressed to the theme – Oktoberfest – we danced the night away on sparkling beats, hot salsa, a little bit of schlager and mysterious dance songs from countries far away….
At the end of the congress, Drs. Stan Ursem (VUmc) won the JNVE 2017 award for his outstanding presentation “The interrelation between FGF23 and glucose metabolism in humans”.

Our fourth congress was a great success! The input of all the PhD students, post-docs, residents in endocrinology, master students and spreakers led to many fruitful discussions, fresh ideas and new cooperation’s. Eventually, that is what it is all about! We hope to see you all again the last weekend of October!

JNVE congres 2016

JNVE conference 2016 a success!

​​The 3rd JNVE conference held in the Holiday Inn Hotel in Leiden at October 27 and 28 was a big success! A total of 42 participants joined the conference and 23 abstracts were submitted and excellently presented. We also enjoyed the presentations by the several invited speakers, amongst which the young Christoph Thaiss from Tel Aviv who gave an inspiring talk about his research on microbiome and obesity. In the evening, we held an exciting battle during the Pubquiz, which was followed by a scary Halloween party. During the second day, the JNVE presentation prize was awarded to Bas Uitbeijerse (LUMC, Leiden) on his talk entitled ‘Fasting relative proinsulin secretion as a marker for beta cell secretory strain and beta cell function in patients with type 1 diabetes’. According to the evaluation forms, you were all very positive about this 3rd edition of the conference and would recommend this meeting to colleagues. We are very happy with this result! ​

Pictures of the JNVE conference can be found under JNVE –> JNVE conference –> Pictures. The date for the ​4th JNVE meeting ​will be announced during the Dutch Endocrine Meeting, hope to see you all there! Also, you are all welcome to join the JNVE session ​during the DEM, with the central theme Stress and Metabolism.



Bestuurslid Thamara Osinga is op 3 februari j.l. gepromoveerd op feochromocytomen en bijniergangliomen. Lees hier meer over haar proefschrift! http://www.bijniernet.nl/2016/03/onderzoek-doe-je-samen/


JNVE congres 2015

JNVE congres 2015 een succes

Op 29 en 30 oktober 2015 vond het tweede congres plaats van de Jonge Nederlandse Vereniging voor Endocrinologie (JNVE) in het Holiday Inn Hotel in Leiden.

Het congres werd geopend door drs. Rahel Büttler, voorzitter van de JNVE, die ook een overzicht gaf van de inbedding van de JNVE tussen andere Europese verenigingen voor jonge endocrinologen.

Het congres besloeg een variëteit aan endocrinologiegerelateerde onderwerpen; van het effect van geslachtshormonen op botstofwisseling tot nieuwe methoden om lichaamseigen bruin vet te activeren, en omvatte zowel klinisch als basaal onderzoek. Vele voordrachten boden stof tot levendige discussies. Naast de jonge onderzoekers hielden vijf gerenommeerde nationale onderzoekers een langere voordracht. Onderwerpen waren circadiane controle van hormoonritmes (prof. dr. Andries Kalsbeek, AMC), translationeel onderzoek in schildklierhormoonregulatie (dr. Edward Visser, Erasmus MC), bruin vet en metabolisme (prof. dr. Wouter van Marken Lichtenbelt, Universiteit Maastricht), androgenen en oestrogenen in de context van transgenders (prof. dr. Martin den Heijer, VUMC) en een introductie op BijnierNet (dr. Lisanne Smans, UMCU). In een interactief seminar schepte dr. Olaf Dekkers (LUMC) duidelijkheid én verwarring over de waarde van de P-waarde.

Tijdens het goed bezochte avondprogramma werd door middel van een ‘pubquiz’ de kennis van de deelnemers op uiteenlopende vlakken, inclusief endocrinologie, getest. Aan het eind van het congres werd de winnaar van de JNVE 2015 award voor beste voordracht uitgereikt. Deze eer, evenals 250 euro, ging naar drs. Guido Bakker (AMC) voor zijn onderzoek Fecal microbiota transplantation used to improve postprandial bacterial translocation; the RALSTONIA study, dat hij met veel passie en humor presenteerde.

Nieuwe voorzitter JNVE bestuur

De opkomst voor het tweede JNVE congres bedroeg 58 deelnemers en overtrof daarmee het aantal van het eerste JNVE congres. Tevens heeft Rahel Büttler, voorzitter en oprichter van de JNVE, afscheid genomen als voorzitter omdat zij haar carrière in Oostenrijk zal voortzetten. Namens het hele JNVE bestuur gaat grote dank uit naar haar inzet en enthousiasme afgelopen anderhalf jaar. Zij zal opgevolgd worden door Mariëtte Boon (LUMC). Verder verwelkomt het JNVE twee nieuwe bestuursleden, te weten Mariska Vlot (VUMC) en Dirk van Moorsel (MUMC).
