    I was appointed as Senior Lecturer in Endocrinology in 2001 at Newcastle University and promoted to Professor in 2007, affiliated to the Institute of Genetic Medicine.

    I have worked at the Royal Victoria Infirmary for 16 out of the 22 years since I qualified as a doctor.  I have also published more than 100 research papers about endocrinology over the last 20 years.
