Linda Williams, secretary


Professor Tricia Tan qualified in medicine at St Andrew's University and Manchester University in 1996. She completed her specialist training in diabetes and endocrinology at University College London, the Royal Free Hospital and Charing Cross and Hammersmith hospitals. She possesses over 10 years' experience in gut hormone research and physiological studies into the impact of gut hormones on weight and type 2 diabetes. She has completed several Phase I trials on the gut hormone analogues, which are being developed for the treatment of obesity. She is the director of the SAS Gut Hormone service, and her clinical research spans a wide gamut from the diagnosis and treatment of neuroendocrine tumours, paraganglioma and phaeochromocytoma to diagnostic testing in endocrine disorders. Her clinical interests are wide-ranging across all spheres of diabetes, endocrinology and metabolic medicine. Specific areas of interest are in obesity, neuroendocrine tumours, pituitary disease and analytical methods for measuring gut hormone levels.
