Special Session for Young Investigators and Post-docs:
“Combining Clinical and Translational Research in Endocrinology”
An informal meeting with Dr. Dolores Shoback, a leading clinical/translational investigator who has also served as President of the ASBMR and leader of multiple guideline panels. She will share her perspective on combining translational perspectives with clinical investigation; this should be of interest both to patient-based and laboratory-based investigators.
