Endocrine Networks

About Endocrine Networks

The Society for Endocrinology’s Endocrine Networks provide a dedicated forum in major areas of endocrinology. Each network enables members with similar interests to come together, share best practice and ideas and find solutions to the challenges they face within a focused environment. These broad-based networks, will aim to meet the needs of members within their specialist field by providing and feeding into Society scientific meetings, providing a platform for collaborative research and practice for basic and clinical researchers, clinical endocrinologists and endocrine nurses.

Endocrine networks:

  • offer greater opportunities to share best practice and increased networking for members
  • provide a framework to come together in a dedicated community
  • promote interdisciplinary interests within the Society
  • increase the profile of endocrinology as a speciality
  • benefit from central funding created to support Endocrine Network activity
