The Society's aims are:

  • To attract high quality scientists, doctors and nurses into endocrinology and support their professional development to advance science and medicine.
  • To engage the public with endocrinology and its impact.
  • To raise the profile and be the voice of endocrinology in the UK.

According to the Association of Medical Research charities, in 2015 the Society spent £1,605,456 on charitable activities, with £998,776 directly funding health research in the UK. [4]


The Society for Endocrinology was officially formed in 1946. John Folley FRS was elected as the Society's first Secretary, Cliff Emmens was elected Treasurer, and Lord Zuckerman was made Honorary Editor of the Society's Proceedings. Writing in the Journal of Endocrinology, Zuckerman explained that he actually conceived of creating a Society for Endocrinology with his colleagues, Sir Charles Dodds, Sir Frank Young, and Sir Alan Parkes as early as 1937, but the creation of the Society was postponed due to the outbreak of World War II.[5]

In 1996, the Society established a commercial subsidiary, Bioscientifica, to raise funds for the Society by providing services to third parties.[6]


The Society for Endocrinology has the following official journals:

The Society also publishes a quarterly magazine, The Endocrinologist.[8]


The Society for Endocrinology organises a variety of conferences and training events. Its flagship event is the annual Society for Endocrinology BES conference, which draws an international delegation of scientists, clinicians, nurses and trainee endocrinologists.[9][10]
