Brief description Common endocrine disorders like Graves’ disease, are mediated by auto-antibodies, causing uncontrolled hormonal expression and undesirable effects. However, due to the limited understanding of the antibody interactions, the treatment is still focused on controlling the hormone production/interactions instead of targeting the underlying autoimmune processes. This project aims to further characterise the role the antibody through animal studies and developing novel treatments based on the research.
