Society for Endocrinology - a world-leading authority on hormones

About us

The Society for Endocrinology is the UK home of endocrinology. We bring together the global endocrine community to share ideas and advance our discipline.

As a membership organisation, we support scientists, clinicians and nurses who work with hormones throughout their careers. We also engage policy-makers, journalists, patients and the public with hormone science to encourage informed health decisions, and to demonstrate the value of endocrinology to the wider world.

The Society's aims

  • To advance scientific and clinical education and research in endocrinology for the public benefit

  • To attract high quality scientists, doctors and nurses into endocrinology and support their professional development to advance science and medicine

  • To engage the public with endocrinology and its impact

  • To raise the profile and be the voice of endocrinology in the UK

  • To promote and support the global endocrine community through collaboration.

How we operate

The Society is a not-for-profit organisation and a registered charity. Our activities are made possible by funding from our wholly owned trading subsidiary, Bioscientifica, which publishes our journals, manages our events and provides membership services.

Profits from Bioscientifica are transferred each year to the Society by Gift Aid. These funds are used to support a comprehensive framework of Society activities to support members, advance the discipline and engage wider audiences with hormones and their impact. These activities are largely carried out by Society members, supported by a professional team based in Bristol, UK.
