The Pitt-Rivers and George Murray lectures

The Pitt-Rivers Lecture

Each year the BTA Committee awards the opportunity to deliver the Pitts-Rivers Lecture at the Annual Joint Endocrine Societies Meeting. This is generously sponsored by the Clinical Endocrinology Trust.

 

This lecture was founded in 1983 in memory of Professor Rosalind Pitt-Rivers in recognition for her outstanding contribution to thyroidology, and particularly of the discovery of Triiodothyronine.

 

This nomination goes to the Clinician or Scientist who, in the opinion of the committee, has made an outstanding contribution to thyroid disease.
