an Endocrine Society Thematic Issue

 

Read our special collection of journal articles with authors who are fellows of the Society’s FLARE program! FLARE (Future Leaders Advancing Research in Endocrinology) is the Endocrine Society’s program for basic and clinical research trainees and junior faculty from underrepresented minority communities who have demonstrated achievement in endocrine research. Curation of the collection was guided by the rate of citations.

Schlaepfer and Joshi discuss in Endocrinology the expression and role of the liver fatty-acid-oxidation enzyme CPT1A. Treviño and Katz discuss developmental origins of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, and possible links to endocrine disruptors. Ma and coauthors describe research with mice on the role of the androgen receptor in dysfunction in ovary theca cells, and Montalbano and colleagues describe evidence that implicates pulmonary collectins and toll-like receptor 2 in the timing of labor.

Also in Endocrinology, Kassotis and coauthors describe multi-organ impacts of prenatal exposure to chemicals used in fracking, using a mouse model. Qiu and colleagues provide evidence for the role of insulin sensing by Kiss1 neurons in the timing of puberty. Ren and others describe types of glucocorticoid receptor signaling in cardiomyocyte hypertrophy and apoptosis. Oki’s group of authors describes a potassium channel mutant that increases aldosterone synthesis.

Writing in JCEM, Zhao and colleagues describe central diabetes insipidus induced by an anti-PD-L1 immune checkpoint inhibitor. Echouffo-Tcheugui and associates discuss the natural history of obesity sub-phenotypes from the Framingham heart study. Tamhane and coauthors provide a meta-analysis that records the beneficial effects of growth hormone on childhood cancer survivors. And Faucz and coauthors describe somatic USP8 gene mutations that are a common cause of Cushing disease.

The FLARE fellows who contributed to these articles are Stanley Andrisse, Victoria D Balise, Ricardo R Correa, Diana Cruz-Topete, Jaydira Del Rivero, Ifechugwude Ebenuwa, Justin B Echouffo Tcheugui, Latrice D Faulkner, Sina Jasim, Milay Luis Lam, Alina P Montalbano, Isabel R Schlaepfer, and Lindsey S Treviño.

About Endocrine Society Thematic Issues

It can be difficult to keep up to date in the rapidly evolving and expanding world of endocrine science. We curate topical collections of research from across our journals, Endocrine Reviews, Endocrinology, Journal of the Endocrine Society, and The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, so that you can easily find and read recent, influential articles on the topics that interest you.

Selection in each Thematic Issue is guided by online metrics, including Altmetric Attention Scores, Featured Article designations, and identification of leading authors and key topics. Each month, we publish a new Thematic Issue online and work to highlight and promote endocrine science in the press, through email, on social media and across other distribution channels.
