The syndromes associated with a dysfunctional thyroid gland can have severe impacts on an individual’s quality of life. Consequently, research aimed at understanding normal thyroid function and how this deteriorates through the pathologies of the various thyroid-related conditions is a high priority.
To support Thyroid Awareness Week on 23-29 May we have created a collection of recently published papers from Society for Endocrinology journals. They’ve all got a thyroid focus and they are all free to download until the end of the month.
