promoting all areas of neuroendocrinology

EVENT: Neuroendo Celebrate!

EVENT: Neuroendo Celebrate!

Celebrating our anniversary, nurturing our future

Join us on 9 December 2019 in Glasgow, UK, to celebrate 30 years of the Journal of Neuroendocrinology (JNE) and its potential future contributors with an Early Career Researcher (ECR) symposium and anniversary dinner.

“This Journal is precious; owned by our community, run by our community for our community. May it be so for the next thirty years!”

- Gareth Leng, JNE Editor-in-Chief, 1996-2003

ECR symposium and programme

Are you starting out in your neuroendocrinology career? Do you have a fantastic project you’re working on? Would you like feedback and input from some of the leaders in the field? Come along to our ECR symposium, aimed at ECRs and open to all BSN members.

With three themed panel sessions and a lunchtime poster session, this ECR symposium will see 50 ECR delegates and eminent neuroendocrinologists meet for a day of discussion, learning and celebration. To mark 30 years of the JNE, the day aims to foster the next generation of neuroendocrine researchers and future journal contributors.

Delegates will hear from ECRs and leaders in the field about cutting-edge research in three areas: biological timing, energy homeostasis, neuroendocrinology in health and disease. 

Where: Orangebox Gallery, The Lighthouse, 11 Mitchell Lane, Glasgow, G1 3NU
When: 10.30-17.30, 9 December 2019
Registration: Early bird, £50 until 2 September 2019. Register via MySociety (you must be a BSN member to register).

Poster Prizes
Prizes of £30 each will be awarded for the best poster include the ECR prize, as voted by ECR delegates, and the JNE prize, as voted by attending previous and current Editors-in-Chief.
