Hormones and health
We’re improving the understanding of how your hormonal (endocrine) system maintains its delicate balance to improve your health and wellbeing.
Hormones are chemical messengers that are produced in the endocrine glands. Hormones help control many body functions such as growth, repair, and metabolism. Hormonal imbalances and endocrine disorders can cause a multitude of issues in the body and our researchers focus on key unmet clinical needs of hormones and health.
Integrating research with clinical service—our Endocrine Hypertension Service—established in 2017 for the purpose of Our Endocrine Hypertension Service has seen a six-fold increase in patients referred for early testing, two-fold decrease in end-organ damage and consistent blood pressure reduction with targeted treatment.
