Who are we?

The Young NVE is an association within the NVE that represents young medical professionals with an interest in endocrinology. We bring talented and enthusiastic young professionals together during our events and create an inspiring environment in which new collaborations flourish. The board of Young NVE consists of ten enthusiastic PhD students, postdocs and medical doctors who work in the field of endocrinology. They each are affiliated with one of the seven academic medical centers in the Netherlands to appropriately represent young medical professionals from all over the country.

Our main goals

  1. Improve interaction and collaboration between everybody who is in the early stages of their career with an interest in endocrinology, such as master students, PhD students, postdocs, young medical doctors and internal medicine specialists, gynecologists, pediatricians and clinical chemists in training with interest in endocrinology.
  2. Organize a yearly conference that consists of presentations of research projects 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 more elaborate presentation
  4.  Collaborate with other organisations of young endocrinology researchers such as the European Young Endocrine Scientists (EYES, the young delegation of the European Society of Endocrinology).

JNVE Conference 2023: a great success!

The 9th JNVE Conference featured two days packed with inspiring presentations of our invited speakers, exciting abstract presentations by young scientists and doctors and a great opportunity to network throughout the day!

The first day Thijs Leeman taught us how to make a real impact within our work, Renate van Genugten challenged our opinions on gender care, Erica van den Akker showed us how to combat childhood obesity, and Sander Kooijman enlightened us about brown adipose tissue, making some of us consider cold showers!

The second day we delved deeper into the fascinating realm of the biological clock thanks to the expertise of Dirk Jan Stenvers. Rob from Gildeprint generously shared invaluable tips and tricks for printing our PhD theses, and Eelco de Koning illuminated us about the promising future of curing diabetes mellitus type 1 by islet transplantations.

None of this would have been possible without the outstanding abstracts presented by our talented participants. An honorable mention to Heleen Jansen (JNVE Talent Award winner) and Xinru Zhang (runner-up), who deservedly received recognition for their exceptional presentations.

The seventh JNVE conference is approaching!

Our last meeting in Nijmegen was a highly successful one. We had an extremely diverse program, with subjects ranging from basal to more clinical oriented research. A total of 12 young and enthusiastic researchers presented their work. Just to name a few, there was a talk explaining the zebrafish model as a good alternative to the widely-used mouse model, as well as a talk telling us about reference values for T4 and TSH in the heel prick test. Moreover, a couple of guest speakers joined our conference. An interactive seminar by Prof. Sjoerd Reppinga (AmsterdamUMC) thought us how to present your research in the media. Another highly interesting lecture by dr. Ines Foessl from the University of Graz (Austria) thought us about micro-RNAs as a marker for osteoporosis. Dr. Sabine Hannema (LUMC) and dr. Teun van Herwaarden (RadboudUMC) gave an interactive lecture regarding disorders of sex development. Collectively, a very interesting and successful conference!

Also, we would like to congratulate Nour El-Sayed (ErasmusMC) on her price for the best presentation.

JNVE congres 2018

Succesvol vijfde congres: de JNVE groeit!

Op 25 en 26 oktober 2018 vond het vijfde congres van de Jonge Nederlandse Vereniging voor Endocrinologie (JNVE) plaats. Ditmaal was er gekozen voor een schitterende locatie in Nijmegen. De opkomst van jonge enthousiaste onderzoekers en clinici was hoger dan ooit.

Onderwerpen die aan bod kwamen varieerden sterk: van de genetische achtergrond van het Prader-Willi-syndoom tot activatie van bruin vet. Opvallend veel aandacht was er voor hormoonbehandelingen bij transgenderpersonen. Zo blijkt de mortaliteit van transgendervrouwen hoger te zijn dan die van niet-transgendermannen en -vrouwen van dezelfde leeftijd. In totaal hebben 27 jonge onderzoekers inhoudelijk sterke presentaties gegeven. Daarnaast was er een zeer interessante lezing van dr. Henriette Kirchner van de Universiteit van Lübeck over obesitas. Hieruit bleek duidelijk dat epigenetisch bepaalde obesitas voor een groot gedeelte intra-uterien ontstaat, en dat dit zelfs twee generaties later nog effect kan hebben. Dr. Tim Korevaar sprak over het belang van continue maten van maternale schildklierfunctie; hij stelde dat hypo- en hyperthyreoïdie even schadelijk zijn voor de intelligentie van het kind. Stof tot nadenken, met name voor aankomende moeders!

Zoals traditie is geworden, werd in de avond een pubquiz georganiseerd, waarbij de kennis van de deelnemers op de meest uiteenlopende vlakken, waaronder endocrinologie, getest werd. De quiz werd gevolgd door een feest met als thema 90’s now!, waarbij goed gebruik werd gemaakt van de dansvloer.

De JNVE-award voor beste presentatie ging naar de jongste deelnemer aan het congres: slechts 21 jaar! Sebastiaan van Meyel (Erasmus MC Rotterdam) kreeg de prijs voor zijn presentatie over pasireotide long-acting release (LAR) als behandeling van dopamineresistente prolactinoma.

Komende en gaande bestuursleden

Na een tweetal mooie jaren als voorzitter nam dr. Mariëtte Boon (LUMC) afscheid van het JNVE-bestuur. In de afgelopen jaren heeft zij een enorme inzet getoond en met haar enthousiasme voor talrijke mooie momenten gezorgd. Namens het hele bestuur willen wij haar heel hartelijk danken voor alles wat zij voor de JNVE heeft betekend. Mariëtte zal opgevolgd worden door Anouk van Berkel (Radboud UMC Nijmegen).

Daarnaast hebben wij afscheid moeten nemen van Margreet Vonk Noordegraaf (Erasmus MC; inmiddels werkzaam bij ICT-Uitvoeringsorganisatie ofwel ICTU) en Mark van Treijen (UMC Utrecht). Ook hen bedankt het JNVE-bestuur voor hun inzet en enthousiasme. Nieuw bij het bestuur aangesloten zijn dr. Eva Coopmans (Erasmus MC), José van den Heuvel (Meander MC Amersfoort) en ondergetekende (LUMC).


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).
