Carol A. Lange, PhD, professor of medicine at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, Minn., has been named editor-in-chief of Endocrinology, the flagship basic science journal of the Endocrine Society.

“I’m honored to join Endocrinology’s mission to be the leading source of emerging hormone science and to share this knowledge in a meaningful way with scientists, clinicians and the public,” Lange says. “I’ve dedicated my entire career to understanding the molecular and biochemical underpinnings of hormone action, and I look forward to continuing the journal’s commitment to publishing fascinating original research and molecular mechanistic studies on endocrine pathways, cells, systems, and diseases.”

Her three-year term as editor-in-chief begins July 1, 2020.

“My vision for Endocrinology is to be the go-to journal for basic scientists. I am excited to lead and foster its continued stability, success, and future growth.”

Lange has attended every annual meeting of the Endocrine Society since she joined in 1996, and has routinely chaired sessions, reviewed abstracts, judged posters, and led “Meet the Expert” discussions. She is a past Endocrine Society Vice President of Basic Science and currently serves on the Society’s Nominating Committee.

Lange received a 2020 Laureate Award for her distinguished service and mentorship to the Endocrine Society and the field of endocrinology.

“My vision for Endocrinology is to be the go-to journal for basic scientists,” Lange says. “I am excited to lead and foster its continued stability, success, and future growth.”

Lange is a professor in the Departments of Medicine and Pharmacology at the University of Minnesota. Her research is focused on the role of steroid hormone receptors (SRs) in breast and ovarian cancers. She received her PhD from the University of Colorado School of Pharmacy in 1991. She holds the Tickle Family Land Grant Endowed Chair of Breast Cancer Research, has served on several NIH Study Sections, and is currently on the Board of Scientific Advisors to the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.

Endocrinology is the Endocrine Society’s flagship basic science journal, a global leader in hormone science and research with more than 43,000 citations and 1.9 million article downloads a year. With continuous online-only publication and monthly issues, the first eight pages free for members, no color charges, and article-level Open Access options, Endocrinology accepts format-neutral manuscript submissions and pre-submission inquiries.
