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.

This year’s BTA conference will include a trainee session on clinical cases. After acceptance of their case for discussion, trainees will be paired with a mentor who will help with discussion of the case at the meeting. We will review guidelines pertaining to the case and discuss how these might be used to guide management. This is an exciting new opportunity for you trainees to interact with experts outside their institution.
Cases should be submitted as an abstract not exceeding 200 words under the headings: Background, Case presentation, Discussion, along with a list of relevant guidelines to: [email protected]
The submission deadline is Sunday 14th April . The BTA is happy to announce this year that up to 8 travel grants of £300.00 each will be made available to trainees who submit high scoring abstracts. Prizes for top scoring abstracts will be presented on the day.
RCD approved CPD points will be made available for the meeting and certificates will be supplied after the meeting.
