About Endocrinology Basic Science Collections

Basic Science Collections in Endocrinology are collections of mini-reviews that editors invited from prominent scholars with the intention of providing cohesive, expert discussion of a set of conceptually linked topics that have seen important recent progress. An introductory article serves as a “hub” that connects and introduces the reviews within each collection, using “companion articles” links in the right-hand rail of each article’s XML presentation.
