Emerging Leaders 2025


Endocrine-Related Cancer Emerging Leaders special collection banner


This collection highlights the breadth and quality of research being undertaken in the endocrine cancer field by truly exceptional early-career researchers. Here at Endocrine-Related Cancer, we are committed to supporting scientists at the early stage of their careers, and wish to recognise and celebrate their diverse knowledge and talents.

‘Emerging Leaders 2025’ is an invite-only collection, including both reviews and original research articles. Researchers are nominated by the editorial board and associated societies. The following eligibility criteria must be met:

  • Scientists: <10 years (or working time equivalent) post PhD with at least three publications as first, co-first or as senior author
  • Physicians: <12 years (or working time equivalent) from completion of MD or MD, PhD with at least three publications as first, co-first or as senior author

All articles will go through a rigorous peer review process; an invitation is not a guarantee of acceptance.


One winner will be chosen by Matthew Ringel, Editor-in-Chief, and Márta Korbonits, Deputy Editor, and will receive a prize of £250. All researchers whose articles are accepted will have their profile and work shared on our social media channels.

If you know an exceptional early-career researcher, and would like to nominate them to receive an invitation to contribute to this collection, please contact us as erc@bioscientifica.com with their CV and proposed article type and topic for consideration
