Research Policy & Advocacy

Improving policies that affect endocrine scientists and their research.

Endocrine researchers study complex biological systems and hormonal pathways that affect all parts of the human body with implications for numerous diseases and conditions.  The Endocrine Society works with the federal government, research funding agencies, and regulatory bodies to advance progress in biomedical research and the ensure that the latest findings from endocrine scientists are incorporated into research strategic plans.

Position Statements

At the Endocrine Society, we are concerned about a number of critical policy issues. Our goals are to ensure that the full body of research available is available to policy makers and to affect positive change by advocating for increased research and updated regulatory processes. Our position statements include advocating for biomedical research funding, our position on stem cell research, central IRBs, and clinical trial registries.
