2020 ESPE Science Symposium

The ESPE Science Symposium aims to promote the development of an interactive network between clinicians and researchers, helping to reduce the gap between research and patient care. It will also provide the means to disseminate new scientific knowledge in the community of paediatric endocrinology. The topic of the meeting should be attractive for researchers in basic or translational research to attend the meeting as well as ESPE members developing experimental and clinical research within and beyond paediatric endocrinology. The ESPE Science Symposium will be held every two years.
