Dr Alessandro Prete

Dr Alessandro Prete, from the University of Birmingham’s Institute of Metabolism and Systems Research, was recently presented with a European Journal of Endocrinology (EJE)'s Rising Star Award in recognition of his achievements in the field.

The 2024 EJE Rising Star Award is presented to individuals selected by the EJE Editors as showing exceptional promise, achievement and trajectory in establishing themselves as independent leading clinical and translational endocrine researchers, with high potential to serve as future editors of the journal.

Dr Prete is a Clinical Associate Professor of Endocrinology, and his area of research focuses on adrenal tumours, endocrine hypertension, and adrenal insufficiency, combining clinical trials and experimental medicine studies. Within the NIHR Birmingham Biomedical Research Centre Women’s Metabolic Health theme, he is investigating new therapeutic interventions for people with adrenal tumours and mild autonomous cortisol secretion.

I am very grateful to be part of the 2024 EJE Rising Stars Award and Mentorship Programme. My expertise in Adrenal Endocrinology aligns with the Journal’s objectives, and I am excited about the prospect of engaging in editorial roles. I am confident that the insights gained from experienced EJE professionals will not only sharpen my editorial skills but also contribute significantly to advancing the Journal's stature and influence in the field.
