The LOCOTACT Lecture in August 2023 was held by Prof. Dumitrescu from the University of Chicago.

Under the title “The control of thyroid hormone levels by the deiodinases - lessons from genetic defects in humans and mice”, she explained the role of the deiodinases and their mutations in thyroid hormone metabolism at different stages of development and how it relates to the lesser known deiodinase related genetic defects in humans.

We thank Alexandra Dumitrescu for her inspiring talk, the lively discussion and for sharing her great expertise with the audience.
