The workshop “Estonian Pituitary Update Course” will takes place in Tallinn (Estonia) from October 12 to October 14, 2022 and has speaker presentations from various Endo-ERN expert members from 3 different countries.
The workshop will cover the latest updates on acromegaly, Cushing’s disease, non-functioning pituitary adenomas, but also cancer effects on pituitary glands and much more! This update course is a joint course held by the European Society of Endocrinology (ESE) and Endo-ERN. The Estonian Endocrine Society will be the local host. All participants are encouraged to submit a case around pituitary diseases. It can be classical or something that you’d love an expert view on. Also, the organisation appreciate cases that provide a learning opportunity! Please submit cases, this is the best way to have active learning workshops. The best cases will be awarded.

The Second annual conference Idiopathic Ketotic Hypoglycemia will take place on June 11 and June 12, 2022. The annual conference will be fully virtual to make sure everyone has a chance to join, no matter where in the world they live. All of the presentations will be available after the conference for educational purposes.
The goal of the conference is to unite the families affected by idiopathic ketotic hypoglycemia, the experts, the healthcare professionals, and the industry so we together can take the first step towards an enhanced understanding of idiopathic ketotic hypoglycemia. Continue reading
GloBE-Reg is a new international registry project that has been launched by the Office for Rare Conditions at the University of Glasgow. The project believes that post regulatory approval studies may be more effectively performed through registry-based studies that collect relevant real world data through a joint collaborative approach between scientific centres, industry partners and medical societies. GloBE-Reg will also use this approach to serve the needs of the endocrine community for assessing longer term clinical outcomes, which are particularly important to continuously expand our scientific knowledge and improve care in children.

On Tuesday May 10th at 16:00 – 17:00 CET an Endo-ERN webinar about “New growth treatments for Achondroplasia” will be given by Klaus Mohnike, Jean Pierre Salles and patient representative Patrica Carl.
Achondroplasia is the most common form of disproportionate dwarfism. The rare skeletal dysplasia leads to an adult height of ~130cm. Historically, Achondroplasia is not an ENDO-topic with experts coming from various fields. However, due to new treatment options, there is an overlap because prescriptions and surveillance will be primarily done by endocrinologists. Two medical experts and a patient representative will summarize the current situation and upcoming treatment options. Continue reading
The ESPE Science Symposium 2022 on “Hypothalamic Dysfunction in Childhood; Understanding its etiology and developing new ways to improve outcome of children with genetic or acquired causes of hypothalamic dysfunction” will be held on 7-8 October 2022 at the Princess Maxima Center, Utrecht, the Netherlands.
There will be discussions about the etiology of genetic and acquired hypothalamic dysfunction in childhood, its consequences and new ways of management to improve outcome. In addition, the focus will be on building new networks and collaboration within ESPE and Europe, together with the patient organizations and Endo-ERN.
For young clinicians and scientists : The ESPE Science Symposium offers a maximum of 25 free places for young clinicians and scientists defined as those who are less than 8 years (full-time equivalent) since completion of doctorate training. Participants who would like to receive one of these free places are required to apply.

In the context of EJP RD’s ERN Workshops, a face-to-face workshop entitled “Functional exploration of genetic variants in cardiac diseases” aimed at presentation of functional explorations of variants of interest identified using Drosophila, C. elegans, Zebrafish and iPSc models to understand the molecular bases of genetic diseases, in particular heart and muscle diseases, is being organised by Philippe Chevalier of the Hospices Civils de Lyon.
The in-person event will take place over two days on June 14th – 15th at the Hospices Civils de Lyon in Lyon, France.
The workshop is open by prior registration and selection to cardiologists, molecular biologists, post-docs, medical fellows, and PhD students and who are employees of or affiliated to an ERN Full Member or affiliated Partner institution.

The ERN Research Training Workshops funding opportunity is now open for applications until April 25th. The goal of the workshops is to train researchers and clinicians affiliated to ERN- Full Members or – Affiliated Partners in relevant topics on research in rare diseases. Training themes may include innovative research methodologies, diagnostic research topics, interdisciplinary treatment approaches, such as gene therapy and transplantation, etc. Moreover, the workshops will be aiming to provide a cross-ERN added value.
The workshops will be delivered as two-day events. The costs for the workshop organization will be covered up to a limit of €25,000 (venue, administrative, audio-visual and IT facilities essential for the workshop, catering, travel and accommodation expenses of workshops participants and invited speakers, if envisaged).
