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.
Endocrinology combines fundamental scientific discovery and medical care that greatly influence human health. Publication of research is necessary to advance our understanding of endocrine science; however, women remain a minority as first and senior authors in endocrinology publications. This special thematic issue focuses on recent research performed and published by women in endocrinology and highlights the influence that their work has had on fellow scientists and clinicians today.
Topics covered include ground-breaking studies of single-cell RNA sequencing in the pituitary gland, innovative technology used to record neuronal activity in free moving animals, the impact of gut microbes on PCOS, and much more. We hope you enjoy this collection of papers celebrating female researchers and their achievements in endocrinology.
