Several NIEHS scientists and grantees participated in the ENDO 2010: The Endocrine Society's 92nd Annual Meeting & Expo held June 19-22 in San Diego, Calif. The gathering allowed scientists to share their latest findings in research topics such as thyroid cancer, obesity, endocrine disruptors, diabetes, growth hormones, and sex steroids.

According to Arlyn Riskind, the ENDO 2010 media relations contact, the meeting (http://www.endo-society.org/endo/) Exit NIEHS attracted over 7,000 researchers and journalists and featured 2,199 poster and 264 oral presentations. Several NIEHS postdocs and staff scientists attended the conference along with principal investigators Ken Korach, Ph.D. (http://www.niehs.nih.gov//research/atniehs/labs/lrdt/receptor/index.cfm), Carmen Williams, M.D., Ph.D. (http://www.niehs.nih.gov/research/atniehs/labs/lrdt/reproductive/index.cfm), and John Cidlowski, Ph.D. (http://www.niehs.nih.gov/research/atniehs/labs/lst/molecular/index.cfm) Cidlowski received the Edwin B. Astwood Award at the 2008 ENDO meeting (http://www.niehs.nih.gov/news/newsletter/2008/july/endo.cfm).

The Endocrine Society® (http://www.endo-society.org/) Exit NIEHS boasts a membership of more than 14,000 endocrinologists from all over the globe. Its members include physicians, basic and clinical researchers, clinical and postdoctoral fellows, students and more. Next year's meeting will be held on June 4-7, 2011 in Boston, Mass.
