Clinical Endocrinology Networking Symposium - 23 November 2023

Research symposium

Are you working with endocrinology research? The Department of Biomedical Sciences (BMI), University of Copenhagen are inviting potential research collaborators from the clinical sector for this networking symposium.

The goal: To bring researchers from the clinical sector and BMI together, allowing them to get to know each other and discover new opportunities for collaboration.

The concept: 10 short research presentations by researchers working with endocrinology. Three overall themes will be covered:

  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Metabolism

Why should you attend?

The symposium will allow you to explore the potential of collaborating with researchers from other sectors. Such collaborations can lead to:

  • Translation and back-translation between clinical and basic science.
  • Access to new tools, techniques, models, and approaches to address clinical challenges and access to clinical material to test or generate hypotheses.
  • A strengthened direction and impact of the research.
  • Opportunity to attract joined research grants and meet the increasing focus on interdisciplinary approaches to tackling unmet needs.
  • Avenues for careers of the young researchers.
