Welcome,

on the following pages we would like to provide you with information about our research laboratory. The emphasis of our research group is placed on the genetic analysis of pituitary diseases and hormone deficiencies. Furthermore we provide molecular diagnosis of several other conditions such as Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH, 21-hydroxylase deficiency), Autoimmune Polyglandular Syndrome Type II (APECED) or mutations of the IGF I-receptor in specific forms of idiopathic short stature. If you care for patients with other pediatric endocrinologic conditions, feel free to contact us by email or telephone for discussion of potential analyses.

Information regarding the forwarding of blood and DNA samples to our laboratory is given on the subsequent pages. In addition you have the option to refer cases or diagnostic problems to our experts for review. Furthermore we wish to present a brief summary of the activities of our laboratory and our staff. Additionally, on the Links page you can find links to useful clinical, genetic and medical sites (note that we are not responsible for the contents of these pages).

Yours faithfully

Prof. Dr. med. Roland Pfäffle Dr. rer. nat. Jürgen Klammt
