Endocrinology is a branch of the medical profession that focuses on disorders of the endocrine system and hormones.
In the twentieth century, the research and practice of endocrinology grew significantly, which led to the formation of various societies and journals dedicated to the field.
As a result, there is now a relatively strong framework in place for endocrinologists to conduct research in the field and continue to expand our understanding of the endocrine system.
This article will summarize the main breakthroughs in endocrinology research, as recognized by the Nobel Prize, and then cover current and future research in the field.
The most prestigious award for life achievements in medical research is widely considered to be the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine.
Several winners of the Nobel Prize for research in the field of endocrinology are outlined below.
Some recent breakthroughs and current research areas in the field of endocrinology are:
At this point in time, we have a deeper understanding of the role of the endocrine system in the body and some methods of treatment for chronic endocrine conditions, such as diabetes.
However, there is a significant reliance on chronic treatments for many endocrine conditions, thus there is a need for more research in order to devise better methods of treatment.
For example, discovering how the function of the endocrine system could be altered so as to cure endocrine diseases without ongoing treatment would be a meaningful breakthrough that may possibly stem from future research.
