Welcome to The Endocrine Society's website for Clinical Scientists
What is a Clinical Scientist? We represent a broad group of society members who perform research related to human health. The spectrum of clinical scientists range from MDs who do basic to translational research to PhDs who do physiologic research in humans, from studies in human tissues to studies in individuals to studies in populations.
Because of the breadth of our scope and expertise, it is often our role to be the bridge between basic scientists and clinicians in practice within the Society. We often are the educators that can communicate basic science advances to clinical care of patients. Many of us wear more than one hat: clinician, researcher, educator and/or administrator in academic and/or industry venues. Because of our diversity we sometimes have difficulties pulling together for a narrow specific set of goals but have broader interests in research in hormones and health. Advocacy for research funding is a major priority for all of us.
I invite you to bring your ideas of how the Society can better serve the broad constituency of the Clinical Scientist to me by email Margaret.email@example.com. I look forward to working with you all over the next 3 years. - Margaret Wierman, M.D., Vice President- Clinical Science
