Division of Endocrinology, Diabetology and Pediatric Obesity - CHUV
For its clinical research projects, our division works closely, with the laboratory of diagnosis of endocrine genetic diseases (LDMGE), directed by the Pr. Nelly Pitteloud, MD, Head of the service of endorcinology, Diabetology and Metabolism at the CHUV. The lab's mission is to better understand the genetics of rare endocrine diseases and improve their care.
Our research programs focus on different thematics:
- The clinical and genetic aspects of early or late puberty
- Turner syndrome
- Klinefelter syndrome
- New technologies to treat diabetes.
We have also developed research projects in nursing.
Finally, our division actively participates in the European consortium COST (www.gnrhnetwork.eu). This consortium brings together medical doctors and researchers, who want to improve the management of patients suffering congenital hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, a rare disease characterized by absent or delayed puberty and infertility in the adult.
