NICHD scientific director Dr. Constantine Stratakis accepted the International Award from the European Society for Paediatric Endocrinology at its 2018 annual meeting held recently in Athens, Greece. The award recognizes outstanding scientific contributions by a pediatric endocrinologist practicing outside Europe. Stratakis’ laboratory has identified a number of genetic defects leading to endocrine and other tumors and has described several new diseases, including one that bears his name, Carney-Stratakis syndrome.
