EYES at the 7th ENDOBridge meeting 2019

EYES was present at the 7th EndoBridge meeting in Antalya, Turkey, October 24 - 27, 2019. This 3-day annual meeting is one event of its kind. It is the only one that is co-hosted by both worlds’ leading organizations; Endocrine Society and European Society of Endocrinology in collaboration with the Society of Endocrinology and Metabolism of Turkey. Beside the state-of-the-art lectures delivered by world-renowned faculty, EndoBridge involves small-scale case discussion sessions that are highly interactive. As an early career investigator, EndoBridges enables you to present your own case at these case discussion sessions or during the poster session.

One of our highlights of Endobridge involves the new President-Elect of the Endocrine Society, Prof. Dr. Gary D. Hammer, which delivered one of the best lectures. His lecture entitled ‘Differential diagnosis, investigation and therapy of bilateral adrenal incidentalomas’ was highly interactive and he addressed a lot of questions to educate us – the early career investigators and/or fellows – in the room.

EndoBridge did manage to bring together a diverse and active international group of early career investigators. In our era, where bridging becomes more and more important every day, EndoBridge provides a great opportunity for us – early career investigators from around the world – to interact with each other, share their experience and perspectives and participate in discussions.

Dr. Ayse Zengin (EYES Co-chair)

My research focuses on the ethnic differences in bone mineral density and muscle mass and strength in diverse populations across the world. I use bone imaging devices for example DXA and pQCT, as well as novel muscle tests (jumping mechanography). My studies are based in The Gambia (West Africa), India, Vietnam and in Aboriginal Australians.



Dr. Luis Cardoso (Treasurer)

My research focus is on parathyroid tumours (particularly familial and malignant forms) and pituitary tumours (particularly hereditary and syndromic forms).

Mr. Peter Aldiss (Membership Coordinator)

I am a British Heart Foundation funded PhD student with a background in exercise physiology and human nutrition. My current research focusses on how perivascular adipose tissue is affected by type 2 diabetes in humans whilst pre-clinical studies aim to determine how this fat depot is regulated by other stimuli (e.g. exercise training).

Dr. Eva Coopmans

I am a MD PhD student in the Pituitary Center Rotterdam, where we study the medical treatment of patients with acromegaly. My current research focusses on the role of pasireotide LAR in the medical treatment of acromegaly. I am also interested in primary immunodeficiencies, in particular concerning the common ground between endocrinology and primary antibody deficiency.

Dr. Daniele Santi (EYES Secretary)

Dr. Daniele Santi gained his PhD in Clinical and Experimental Medicine in 2017 from the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia. Currently, Dr. Santi works at the Unit of Endocrinology of the Department of Biomedical, Metabolic and Neural Sciences of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Italy where his main fields of the research are reproduction and the gonadotropins physiology and implications in clinical practice. Currently, his researches are involved in the environmental and epigenetics influences on the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis.
