Diego Ferone, after the degree in Medicine and the postgraduate degree in Endocrinology and Metabolic Diseases at the “Federico II” University of Naples, received the PhD degree in Neuroendocrinology in Rotterdam at the Erasmus University, where he spent more than 4 years in the laboratory of Steven Lamberts and Leo Hofland. He has been awarded by the Italian Society of Endocrinology as best young investigator in 1999, best senior scientist (career award) in 2011, and he also received the an award as best Italian researcher in the field of Neuroendocrine Tumors and MEN in 2010. Dr. Ferone has been constantly involved in studies on the physiopathology and treatment of pituitary and neuroendocrine tumors, physiopathology of somatostatin and dopamine receptors in the immune and neuroendocrine systems, medical therapy of acromegaly, Cushing disease, neuroendocrine tumors and hypopituitarism, and is author of more than 250 peer reviewed articles. Moreover, he presented more than 500 lectures in international and national meetings, and is author of 30 chapters of book (total impact factor over 530; h-index 44).

Raúl M. Luque [1973; BS in Biology [University of Cordoba (UCO), 1997] and PhD in Sciences (UCO; 2003)] is Associate Professor at the University of Cordoba (UCO) and Principal Investigator (PI) of the “Hormones and Cancer” research group at the Maimonides Biomedical Research Institute of Cordoba (IMIBIC). Dr. Luque started his scientific career with a highly competitive FPU grant and continued his Postdoctoral training with a fellowship from the Junta de Andalucía and, then, as Research Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago (USA; 2003-2007). In 2007, Dr. Luque was reincorporated at the UCO as Ramón y Cajal Researcher, establishing his own research line as PI of the “Hormones and Cancer” group. His expertise lies in Endocrinology, Metabolism and Cancer, with special attention to the neuroendocrine regulation of the GH-IGFI axis (i.e. study of the cellular and molecular events responsible for the proper functioning of the hypothalamic-pituitary unit and its interrelationship with metabolism and cancer), as well as the characterization of novel classical and novel metabolic signals involved in the integrated control of different endocrine tissues/organs (i.e. pituitary, hypothalamus, liver, etc.), and their mechanisms of action. During the last years, Dr. Luque has obtained research funds (as PI) for several projects from public (FIS, Merck-Serono, etc.) and private (IPSEN; Novartis) sources and actively collaborate in national (CIBERobn, PIE14-00005...), and international (UE, NIH) actions, demonstrating his leadership capacity. In total, Dr. Luque has published over 125 articles in international peer-reviewed journals over the last 15 years (Pubmed database as “Luque RM” or “Luque R”; from April 2002 to November 2017), including a significant number of research papers and invited reviews in authoritative, highly-ranked journals of the Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism field (most of them in Q1 in these fields and in a high percentage as first or corresponding author). The journals of publication of Dr. Luque´s work have included Oncogene, Cancer Letters, Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, Endocrinology, FASEB J, J Cell Mol Med, etc. The total number of citations of Dr. Luque’s work is presently >2800, with an H-index of 32. In addition, he has participated as invited speaker in numerous international meetings, and serves or has served as member of the Editorial Board (acting as Editor in Chief, Associate Editor or member of the reviewer panel) of prestigious journals of the field, such as the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, Journal of Endocrinology and Journal of Molecular Endocrinology, Journal of Endocrinological Investigation, Endocrine, Frontiers in Systems and Translational Endocrinology, etc. Dr. Luque is also the Head of the “Hormone and Cancer” group at the Maimonides Biomedical Research Institute (IMIBIC)/University of Cordoba and, he has been a highly implicated promoter of the Spanish and European Society of Endocrinology and Nutrition (for instance, he is the current Basic Co-chair of the next ECE that will be held in Barcelona in 2018), of the CIBERobn (National Spanish Research Network for Obesity and Nutrition) and other Societies [ENEA, (i.e. he was member of the POC of the ENEA meeting 2016 in Milan, Italy), Endo-Society, etc.]. Dr. Luque has several registered patents and is member of different panels of project evaluation (ANEP, FIS, and agencies from France, Italy and Argentina). Dr. Luque has obtained more than 20 scientific awards (SAEN, SEEN, ENEA, ESE, EndoSociety, etc.) and has been involved in different administrative activities [Academic Director of the Master on Traslational Biomedical Reseach of UCO, Coordinator of the Animal Research Service at the IMIBIC, member of the infrastructure committee of the IMIBIC and of the Biomedical Ethic Committee of UCO, member of the SAEDYN advisory board, etc]. Finally, Raul´s teaching duties have been evaluated as excellent (95/100) by the General System of Educational Evaluation (ANECA).
