President - Professor V Krishna Chatterjee FRS FMedSci
Krishna Chatterjee, Professor of Endocrinology at the University of Cambridge, undertakes research at the interface of basic science and clinical medicine, which aims to advance fundamental knowledge of the thyroid axis.
His group studies rare and unusual disorders of thyroid hormone action, including Resistance to Thyroid Hormone mediated by defective thyroid hormone receptor beta or alpha; and a multisystem disease with deficiency of human selenocysteine-containing proteins, which affects thyroid hormone metabolism. He seeks to translate discoveries into better diagnosis and therapy of both rare and common thyroid disorders.
