Thursday, March 21—Friday, March 22, 2019

Pan American Neuroendocrine Society Meeting 2019
Our inaugural PANS2019 meeting will focus on four integrated topics that cross traditional neuroendocrine boundaries including: epigenetic regulation of endocrine signaling; functional investigation of neuroendocrine circuits; circadian and metabolic control of neuroendocrine function; and neuroinflammation and neural injury in neuroendocrine states. Without a doubt, this will be the event of the year for neuroendocrinologists. Learn more at paneuroendo.org.

Early Career Forum

Early Career Forum (8:00 AM–6:00 PM)
Designed exclusively for students and fellows, this interactive forum provides a robust schedule of career development sessions in both basic science and clinical endocrinology. Hear from distinguished scientists and clinicians as they share advice and perspectives on career choices and the importance of building a strong career strategy to get you where you want to be.

Androgen Excess and PCOS Update Meeting: Development of PCOS Related Health Concerns in Offspring and Their Potential Transfer across Generations (8:00 AM–5:30 PM)
Speakers at this one-day, topic-focused meeting, including selected oral presenters from submitted abstracts, will tackle new and emerging understanding of the potential role for intrauterine environment in the reproductive, psychiatric, and metabolic disturbances in offspring of women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) using human data and relevant animal models. Talks include:

  • Implications of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome for Pregnancy and for the Health of Offspring
  • Intergenerational Associations of Chronic Disease and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Is Associated with Adverse Mental Health and Neurodevelopmental Outcomes
  • Does Maternal Androgen Exposure and Diet-Induced Obesity Increase the Susceptibility of Transgenerational Disease?

The meeting will finish with a debate and audience discussion of the motion: "Is maternal metabolic disease the risk factor for intergenerational transmission of PCOS?" Learn more at ae-society.org.

Hands-On Thyroid Ultrasound Workshop

Introductory Course (7:00 AM–1:00 PM)
The introductory thyroid ultrasound workshop is designed to introduce participants to the use of ultrasound in diagnosing thyroid nodules and performing ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspirations. After multiple presentations, participants move to a hands-on session where faculty will guide them through ultrasound techniques on simulated nodules. Limited seating. Register early. The workshop is eligible for up to 5.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™, 5.75 ABIM MOC credits, and 5.75 ECNU Credits.

A separate registration is required for this event. Pricing—Members: $415; Nonmembers: $499; In-Training, Early Career, RN, NP, or PA Members: $289.

Thyroid Workshop

Advanced Course (7:00 AM–5:30 PM)
Take your ultrasound skills to the next level by attending the advanced Thyroid Ultrasound Workshop. Designed for practitioners experienced in performing thyroid ultrasonography, the comprehensive workshop will focus on recent advances in diagnosing thyroid nodules and the use of ultrasound in examining cervical lymph nodes and parathyroid adenomas. Real-time ultrasound findings of metastatic lymph nodes and parathyroid adenomas will be demonstrated on patient volunteers. Limited seating. Register early. The workshop is eligible for up to 8.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™, 8.5 ABIM MOC credits, and 8.5 ECNU Credits. Prerequisite: The advanced workshop is for physicians already doing thyroid ultrasound or those who have previously participated in the Introductory Hands-on Thyroid Ultrasound Workshop.

A separate registration is required for this event. Pricing—Members: $469; Nonmembers: $549; In-Training, Early Career, RN, NP, or PA Members: $319.

American Thyroid Association Symposium 2019: Diagnostic Imaging and Image-Guided Therapies for Thyroid Disease (1:00 PM–5:30 PM)
The increasing use of diagnostic imaging has uncovered a large reservoir of previously undetected thyroid nodules and cancer. The escalating prevalence of low risk thyroid cancers coupled with stable mortality rates necessitates an efficient risk stratification system for evaluation of nodular disease. Given the indolent nature of the majority of low risk thyroid cancers and the potential morbidity associated with surgical management, interest in the use of alternative strategies to manage small thyroid cancers has risen. Meanwhile, the incidence of advanced stage thyroid cancer is also increasing, and these patients are at highest risk for recurrence and possibly mortality. Imaging is especially critical in defining the extent of disease for this patient population so that surgery can be appropriately planned to gain the best oncologic outcomes. Through a combination of lectures, panel discussions, and case-based presentations, this course will explore the role of various imaging modalities in the evaluation of patients with thyroid disease and examine the clinical indications for various image-guided therapies for management of thyroid nodules and cancer.

Room 293

This workshop is aimed at giving scientists training on how to explore and use protein interaction and pathway bioinformatics resources. Attendees will get an in-depth look into the data repositories, resources and tools available and how to both find information on a single molecule and how to build high-quality networks to enable network analysis.

The workshop is tailored to postdoctoral fellows and research investigators looking to build networks prior to omics data analysis, or to better understand the biology of their favorite gene(s) or protein(s). A separate registration is required for this event.
