The Endocrine Society has named Frank Z. Stanczyk, PhD, professor of research in the Departments of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Preventive Medicine, to the Sex Steroid Assay Reporting Task Force that will recommend policies on measurement reporting requirements for Endocrine Society journals (Journal of Clinical Endocrinology Metabolism, Endocrinology, Journal of Molecular Endocrinology) and sister journals.

The group aims to ensure that steroid hormone measurements reported for studies in clinical or basic science journals are based on validated assays, and that the reporting of the assay methodology follows certain guidelines to avoid publication of questionable data and invalid conclusions that could potentially affect patient management and treatment.
