The international DSD & CAH registries were initially developed in 2007 from a research grant from the Research Unit of the European Society for Paediatric Endocrinology and were subsequently enhanced through project grants from EUFP7 and MRC grants. Currently they receive funding from several sources and their activity is of interest to pharma as well as the European Medicines Agency as a tool that could be used for post-marketing surveillance.

This post is mainly funded through an unrestricted educational grant from Diurnal. The purpose of the post is to:

  1. Maintain an international network of clinicians looking after people with DSD and CAH within the Registry Office.
  2. Prepare 6 monthly reports to groups of users with a specific research / clinical focus such as the CAH user group.
  3. Develop a new module within the Registry that will be aimed at performing a study assessing the quality of life and patient reported outcomes in people with CAH.
  4. Improve the quality of data in the Registry and develop its compliance with post-marketing commitments required by pharmaceutical companies.
  5. Provide clinical input into the analysis of the projects related to international registries for CAH, DSD and other rare endocrine conditions.

The post-holder will also be expected to contribute to the formulation and submission of research publications and research proposals as well as manage and direct this complex and challenging project, as new opportunities allow.

The post-holder should have a good knowledge of the conditions included in these registries and have previous experience of working on rare disease registries.
