Professor George P. Chroussos receives 2023 Transatlantic Alliance Award


Professor George P. Chroussos, who is known as a Paediatrics professor and medical clinical researcher, has received the 2023 Transatlantic Alliance Award from the Endocrine Society and the European Society of Endocrinology (ESE). 

Dr Chroussos has contributed widely to the medical community through his multiple positions as Professor Emeritus of Paediatrics and Endocrinology at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA) School of Medicine, UNESCO Chair on Adolescent Health Care and the Director of the University Research Institute on Maternal Child Health and Precision Medicine at the NKUA School of Medicine.

The award, which was established in 2021, is given to a renowned global figure who has significantly advanced endocrine research on both sides of the Atlantic, in Europe and the United States.

Chrousos has devoted much of his research to the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA axis) and has thoroughly investigated the neuroendocrine changes linked to a variety of complex human disorders, such as anxiety and depression, eating disorders, obesity, metabolic syndrome, sleep disorders, and inflammatory autoimmune and allergic diseases.

“George Chrousos is an outstanding scientist, a ‘giant in the field’,” said ESE President Professor Martin Reincke.

“His lifetime accomplishments in Greece and Europe perfectly match those in the United States.”
