I am currently Head of Paediatric Endocrinology at the London Centre for Paediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes (LCPED), Head of Clinical Service in Endocrinology at GOSH, and Head of the Section of Genetics and Epigenetics in Health and Disease within the Genetics and Genomic Medicine Programme. My clinical practice encompasses all areas of paediatric and adolescent endocrinology. I qualified in Medicine at the Middlesex Hospital, London. I trained in paediatric endocrinology and was awarded an MD at UCL for my work on the optimization of a novel bioassay for the estimation of serum growth hormone. I then obtained post-doctoral experience at the Medical Research Council National Institute for Medical Research where I identified the first gene to be associated with septo-optic dysplasia. I was made Professor of Paediatric Endocrinology in 2006. I have been Chair of the British Society for Paediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes, and am currently Chair of the Programme Organizing Committee of the European Society for Paediatric Endocrinology, with a position on the Council of ESPE. My areas of research include hypopituitarism, disorders of growth, and disorders of sex development. I was awarded a prestigious MRC Career Establishment Grant in 1999. I have received several awards for my research subsequently, including the US Endocrine Society Quest Diagnostics Young Investigator Award, RCPCH Donald Paterson Prize and the ESPE Henning Anderson Prize.
