Why is neuroendocrinology important to me?


The British Society for Neuroendocrinology (BSN) is a scientific society that exists to promote research and learning into the interplay between the endocrine and nervous systems that control so many important body processes (see below for key subject categories). The ultimate aim of this research is to provide therapies for the many neuroendocrine diseases and disorders that may develop throughout the life course, and to develop methods to beneficially regulate normal neuroendocrine function in man and animals.

The origins of the Society date back to 1985, and it has published the international 'Journal of Neuroendocrinology' for over 20 years. Annual meetings are held either stand alone or jointly with European or UK societies with similar interests. The BSN has a number of grant schemes available to its membership to support neuroendocrine research by scientists at different phases of their careers, researcher mobility and skills training, international and UK travel, as well as support for scientific meetings and public engagement events.

The Journal of Neuroendocrinology's website can be found here.
