June 11-14, 2008


Division of Intramural Research (DIR), NICHD; Office for Rare Diseases, NIH; University of Michigan Millie Schembechler Adrenal Cancer Program; Adrenal Cortex Conferences; University of Buffalo; and The American Endocrine Society


San Francisco, California


The conference will focus on the adrenal cortex, a gland that produces the steroid hormones, cortisol and aldosterone, that are essential for life. It will provide a greater opportunity to discuss new discoveries and their impact on rare diseases specifically related to the adrenal gland. New insights into the role of adrenal stem cells in the differentiation and development of the mouse adrenal cortex; new genes implicated in adrenocortical carcinoma; adrenocorticotropic hormone resistance syndromes; other forms of adrenal insufficiency; and including newly discovered genes implicated in congenital adrenal hyperplasia will be the major topics.
