Endometriosis is a chronic condition that affects an estimated 10% of women of reproductive age. It is characterized by the growth of endometrial tissue outside of the uterus, leading to symptoms such as severe pain, especially during menstrual periods, or infertility. Despite its prevalence, endometriosis is often misdiagnosed and the cause of the disease is still largely unknown, resulting in inadequate treatment and significant personal and societal burdens.
The Leopoldina International Virtual Panel Discussion will bring together leading experts to explain the characteristics of endometriosis and discuss the latest findings and advances in the diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis. The panel will provide a platform to exchange knowledge, ideas and perspectives on ongoing research efforts and raise scientific and public awareness of this complex condition.
The Leopoldina will welcome the following experts to the podium:
This panel discussion will be moderated by Dr Anna Carthaus, Deutsche Welle, and is part of the Leopoldina International Virtual Panel Series.
In July 2020, the Leopoldina launched a virtual format for global scientific exchange: Leopoldina International is a series of online panels organized by Leopoldina’s International Relations Department in cooperation with its global partners. It offers a virtual room for the global scientific community to convene and for the interested public to join the dialogue with scientists. Previous panels addressed the COVID-19 pandemic from different angles, including vaccination, multimorbidity, mental health, contact tracing, and Long Covid.
