He is Professor of Medicine at the Centre hospitalier de l'Université de Montréal (CHUM, QC, Canada) and has served as Chairman of the Department of Medicine and Associate Director General for Medical and Academic Affairs. His particular interests include the pathophysiology of adrenal tumors and hyperplasias leading to Cushing's syndrome and primary aldosteronism, and new drugs for these disorders. His group pioneered the identification of the role of aberrant adrenal expression of hormone receptors leading to adrenal overgrowth and over function.
  Paul Stewart
Secretary Treasurer
Professor Stewart is the Secretary Treasurer to the ISE. He is Executive Dean of the Faculty of Medicine & Health and Dean of the Medical School at the University of Leeds. He is also a Non-Executive Director and an Honorary Consultant Endocrinologist at the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. His clinical expertise includes the management of pituitary and adrenal disorders, endocrine hypertension and reproductive medicine. He supervises an active endocrinology research group which focuses on corticosteroids, specifically the metabolism of cortisol metabolism by 11β –hydroxysteroid dehydrogenases and its role in human disease. He has authored over 300 original peer-reviewed publications and delivered numerous prize lectures.
  William Young
Endocrine Society representative
  Professor Young is Professor of Medicine in the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine. As Chair of the Division of Endocrinology at Mayo Clinic he leads one of the largest endocrine departments in the world. He is a Past President of the Endocrine Society and is the current Chair of the American Board of Internal Medicine Specialty Board in Endocrinology.

He has been the recipient of multiple education awards and has presented at over 400 national and international meetings and he has been an invited visiting professor for more than 130 medical institutions.
  Margaret E. Wierman
Endocrine Society representative
  Professor Wierman is Professor of Medicine, OBGYN, Physiology and Biophysics at the University of Colorado and Chief of Endocrinology at the Denver Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Her clinical and research specialties are in neuro- and reproductive endocrinology and endocrine tumorigenesis. Dr. Wierman's basic research interests are in the regulation of the genes that control the reproductive axis. She studies the mechanisms by which gonadal sex steroids and peptide hormones regulate the developmental and tissue specific expression of gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH). A second effort is focused on understanding the mechanisms underlying and treatment options for patients with pituitary and adrenal tumors. She has served on multiple Endocrine Society committees and will receive the 2017 Mentor Laureate award from the Endocrine Society.

  Vicki Clifton
At Large representative (Australia)
  Professor Clifton is a National Health and Medical Research Council Senior Research Fellow who is currently a Professorial Research Fellow with Mater Medical Research Institute leading the Pregnancy and Development team. Prof Clifton has a background in reproductive endocrinology and her research has examined aspects of placental function which has evolved into an investigation of those factors that program fetal development and neonatal adaptation. She is internationally recognized for her research into the human placenta and is currently Editor of the Placenta Journal (2012-present). Her current research focusses on the impact of maternal asthma and other health complications during pregnancy on placental function, fetal growth and childhood development.
