Society Testimony

Statement for ARPA-H August 3 Listening Session by Dr. Ursula Kaiser

August 03, 2021

"On behalf of the Endocrine Society, thank you for the opportunity to discuss the ARPA-H proposal. Founded in 1916, the Endocrine Society is the world’s oldest, largest, and most active organization of scientists and healthcare professionals dedicated to research on hormones and the clinical treatment of patients with endocrine diseases. We welcome new approaches to drive transformational innovation to improve health, and we appreciate your early engagement with us as ARPA-H takes shape.

The endocrine system plays a vital role in maintaining homeostasis essential for human health, and endocrine science is instrumental to the NIH mission to lengthen life and reduce illness and disability. The areas that our members study address the priorities of multiple Institutes and Centers, including those represented here today. For example, endocrinologists study the molecular roots of cancer and endocrine neoplasias. We also study the effects of the environment on endocrine systems, including the harmful consequences of exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals, or EDCs, such as the role of EDCs in the initiation and progression of hormone-sensitive cancers. These and other areas of endocrine research are ripe for new approaches, and I would like to share some opportunities as well as some issues that we urge the NIH to consider."
