We were deeply saddened to hear of the recent passing of two esteemed colleagues. Professor Ze'ev Hochberg passed away in December 2022. He has contributed a lot to the field of pediatric endocrinology and was an active member of ESPE and the Israel Paediatric Endocrine Society. He was awarded the ESPE Andrea Prader Prize in 2010. You can find the full obituary on the ESPE website.
French paediatrician and researcher Professor Nathalie Josso passed away in November. Her name is linked to the cloning of the Anti-Mullerian Hormone and she conducted many excellent pieces of work on DSD and AMH. She was an active ESPE member and was awarded the ESPE Andrea Prader Prize in 1992.
Our ESPE schools provide a wonderful learning environment for young paediatricians and basic scientists who want to develop their interest and learning in the field of paediatric endocrinology. Applications for the ESPE Summer School are now open and successful applicants will enjoy three days of interactive lectures, presentations, and critical evaluation of publications.
The next in the series of our popular ESPE Connect Webinars will be held on February 15 and our world-class speakers will discuss the management of Lipodystrophy. This stimulating webinar will allow participants learn about the current genetic findings and treatment of lipodystrophy syndromes.
Please remember that registration is open for IMPE 2023 in Buenos Aires, Argentina and for IMPE 2023 On-Demand – an event which will bring together paediatric endocrinologists and child health professionals from around the globe to deliver the latest developments in the field covering rich and relevant topics. We hope to see many of you there!
