The Dutch Society for Research of Ageing organised a conference on ‘Challenges in Translational Research to promote Healthy Ageing’ on May 19th 2017.
THYRAGE is involved in this Advanced Lecture Course as both Prof. Barbara Demeneix and Dr. Diana van Heemst will give lectures.
From November 7th to 9th, four THYRAGE investigators ( Duncan Bassett , Monica Dentice, Diana van Heemst and Graham Williams) had the privilege of attending the BES 2016 conference in Brighton, organised by the British Society for Endocrinology.
Monica Dentice, senior researcher within THYRAGE, has been awarded the prestigious Harrington-De Visscher Prize of the European Thyroid Association (ETA) for her seminal discoveries linking alterations in cell-specific thyroid hormone metabolism and thyroid hormone action to tissue pathophysiology in the skin, liver, heart, growth plate and skeletal muscle.
On June 17th, THYRAGE investigators Graham Williams and Duncan Bassett had the privilege of speaking at the 20th Annual Symposium of the Dutch Thyroid Research Foundation, which took place at the Trippenhuis in Amsterdam. The meeting was a great success and attended by colleagues from Leiden including THYRAGE investigator Diana van Heemst and members of her laboratory.
