Conferences | Public lectures | Seminars

This is a free to attend in person conference taking place on Tuesday 5th July 2022. Our event aims to showcase human research in the area of endocrinology and physical activity. It is our hope that this one day in-person meeting will highlight the important connections between the endocrine system and physical activity for both health and performance.

The programme will highlight the relationships between physical activity, energy balance, cellular metabolism and the influence of endocrine sex differences in health and performance. This event is organised with early career researchers in mind and will provide a friendly environment to showcase their research and to network and engage with the key topics and researchers in the field. Last year we held a two day virtual conference that was received with huge success, we aim to build upon this event and bring together similar communities at our in person event.
