The format of the session will be active discussion of selected current topics covering novel aspects related to hormone secretion, signaling and cellular effects and their regulation. Reading assignments will be made based on recent review articles and these will used to expand basic endocrine physiology concepts. Final grade will be based on two essay question-based exams and on an oral presentation of a topic selected by the student based on her/his particular research or discipline interests.
