Presentations will cover new insights to the cell- and organ-specific functions of TH transporters, deiodinases and TH receptors. Novel translational concepts for treating rare (e.g. MCT8 deficiency) and common diseases will be discussed as well.

The scientific programme covers plenary lectures given by internationally renowned speakers and experts in the field. The international conference will start on Thursday, June 8th, 3 pm and will end in the early afternoon on Saturday, June 10th. 2023.

Oral and poster presentations by young investigators are highly welcome. Abstract submission and registration site will be open in January 2023.
