About this event

  • Date and time Wed 5 May 2021 from 4:30pm to 6:05pm
  • Location Online
  • Organised by Endocrinology and Diabetes

This three-part webinar will provide an overview of genetics and endocrinology and feature experts across both of these fields.

In this second webinar, expert speakers in the field of genetics and endocrinology include Professor Marta Korbonits, Dr Ruth Casey and Dr Paul Newey.

During this webinar you will:

  • Learn the clinical approach to the genetics of pituitary tumours

  • Understand the genetics of phaeochromocytomas and paragangliomas

  • Learn the appropriate approach for patients with Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndromes

This meeting is held in association with The Society for Endocrinology.

Marta Korbotnis

Professor Marta Korbonits

Endocrinology and Metabolism, Centre Lead for Endocrinology, Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry, Queen Mary University of London.

Speaker's biography

Márta Korbonits, MD, PhD, DSc, FRCP is Professor of Endocrinology and Metabolism at Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry, Queen Mary University of London, is a graduate from the Semmelweis Medical School, Budapest. She was a Medical Research Council Clinician Scientist Fellow working on ghrelin and the hormonal regulation of the metabolic enzyme AMP-activated protein kinase. Her current interests include endocrine tumorigenesis, especially the genetic origin of pituitary adenomas and other endocrine tumour syndromes.

She works on both the clinical characterisation as well as molecular aspects of pituitary diseases and leads a large international consortium to study these rare conditions. She published over 200 original papers (Scopus H-index of 62). She shares her time between clinical patient care, clinical research and laboratory-based research as well as teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level. She was a recipient of several national and international awards and was serving on the Executive Committee of ENEA, SfE and ESE as well as on several editorial boards. She is the incoming Deputy Editor of Endocrine-Related Cancer. In 2019 she has been elected as a Member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
