Rising Stars 2023


JOE-JME rising stars collection banner


The joint Editorial Board of Journal of Endocrinology and Journal of Molecular Endocrinology has commissioned this Rising Stars collection highlighting the breadth and depth of research being undertaken across the field of basic endocrinology by early- and mid-career researchers. The journals are committed to supporting scientists at the beginning of their careers, offering editorial board experience via the Early Career Editor roles and now, by publishing this collection of articles in recognition of emerging talent in the field of endocrinology. The collection is being led by Senior Editor Professor Karen Chapman.


"This is a great opportunity for the journals to highlight the work of early and mid-career researchers. We are delighted to feature their contributions from across the globe."
