Dr. Hugh Tildesley


We're committed to improving how healthcare is provided in British Columbia through clinical and foundational research.


Founded by the late Dr. Hugh Tildesley, the Endocrine Research Society (ERS) was officially incorporated under the Society Act of British Columbia in March 1995. The educational goals of the Society are to conduct medical research, primarily carried out in the province of British Columbia, and to educate the public and medical professionals of ERS’s research by way of conferences, seminars, publications, and public forums.
