The main focus of my department is the treatment of pituitary tumours, in particular the medical therapy of acromegaly and replacement therapy with growth hormone.
We have also founded international collaborations looking at the genetics of osteoporosis and auto-immune thyroid disease. These collaborations have been successful in establishing for example the importance of PTHR1 in the genetic cause of osteoporosis.
In collaboration with other members of OCDEM we are also involved in the elucidation of carbohydrate intolerance seen in Turner's syndrome and are beginning to shed further light on metabolic abnormalities in both sexes and in polycystic ovary syndrome.
