ISE recognized 22 Early Career endocrinologists with an ICE 2022 Abstract Award

Facilitating career development pathways for the future generation of emerging leaders in global endocrinology has always been at the core of ISE’s mission and dedication.

In 2018, at the International Congress of Endocrinology (ICE) in Cape Town, South Africa, ISE welcomed 60 Early Career Grant recipients from across the globe, who received support from ISE to attend the congress. The ICE congress presents an amazing opportunity for young researchers to meet, network and share knowledge and experiences with colleagues from all around the world, which is especially valuable at the early stage of their career.

Despite the virtual format of the ICE congress in 2022, ISE decided to continue the commitment and supported 22 Early Career endocrinologists, predominantly from developing countries, with an Abstract Award. The award provided them with free registration and access to the full scientific content during the congress and until 30 days after. The winners had the chance to present their abstracts as poster or oral presentations throughout the four congress days and create valuable connections that will help them further develop in their field.
