Recent progress in hormones research



8th January 2018, in the journal club meeting, the topic “Recent progress in hormones research” was discussed.  There are new emerging hormones, which are under clinical trials processes such as Betatrophin, Irisin, and Asprosin. Looking at the advances in biological research and the ongoing debates about public health, it is not too difficult to predict that hormones and hormone receptors will remain an exciting and important field of basic research in the future. Further developments in the science of signaling mechanisms will depend heavily on emerging technologies, such as proteomics and structural biology, while receptor pathology and gene therapy will occupy an important niche in clinical practice and commercial exploitation.
