Endocrine Society selects Hydelene Dominguez as winner of the C. Wayne Bardin International Travel Award

Washington, DC March 25, 2021
Endocrine Society selected Hydelene Dominguez, M.D., as the first winner of the C. Wayne Bardin International Travel Award. The award was established to pay tribute to Bardin, who passed away in 2019 and made remarkable research contributions to both reproductive physiology and contraception throughout his long career.

The award recognizes Bardin’s passion for nurturing young researchers by covering the costs to send a young, outstanding endocrinologist to ENDO, the annual meeting of the Endocrine Society. Candidates for the award are chosen based on the quality of their ENDO abstract and the overall quality of their science.

Hydelene Dominguez, M.D., chief fellow at the University of the Philippines – Philippine General Hospital, won this year’s award for her excellent ENDO 2021 research on pheochromocytoma, a rare neuroendocrine tumor. Dominguez is currently conducting research on diabetes and thyroid cancer to improve patient outcomes in underdeveloped areas in the Philippines. She is working to expand her research to her other areas of interest, bone and adrenal health.

Dominquez will receive complimentary registration and a travel award to attend the next in-person meeting of the Endocrine Society. The travel award will cover up to $3,000 in travel, hotel, and per-diem costs.

We anticipate the new application cycle will open in October 2022. To be considered for the award, applicants must be an endocrine fellow currently in training or a junior faculty member for less than 5 years and submit an abstract to ENDO 2022.

More information on the award and application requirements can be found at: www.endocrine.org/bardinaward. Contact [email protected] with any questions.
