Any Saudi who has had a bad day may want to attend Dr. George Chrousos’ lecture this week on Tuesday, the 18th of January, at King Saud University’s College of Medicine main auditorium.

The noted Greek academic and researcher, listed among the world’s 250 most prominent clinical investigators and a KSU consultant in two chairs, will discuss stress and its impact on the individual – a speech entitled “Stress: the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly,” based on the studies he and numerous colleagues have made on the subject.

Dr. Chrousos has earned an esteemed reputation for his tireless research in not only pediatrics, but endocrinology, psychiatry, rheumatology, allergies, surgery, oncology, and reproductive medicine. According to his ISI he is one of the world’s pre-eminent pediatric physicians and endocrinologists and is the UNESCO chair in adolescent care.

In his illustrious career as a medical researcher and educator, he has been published more than 1,100 times, edited 25 books, and been cited in more than 50,000 times in international publications and presentations.

His expertise in stress in large part can be linked to his work in endocrinology. The interrelationships between the nervous system and the endocrine systems have a significant impact on mood and sleep disorders, pain perception, and immune functions.
