Welcome to the 14th International Workshop on Resistance to Thyroid Hormone and Thyroid Hormone Action (IWRTH). The meeting will be held in Monterey California, March 25-28, 2020, just before the 2020 Meeting of the Endocrine Society in San Francisco CA. Scientific sessions will start Wednesday 1:30 pm, and end at noon Saturday, March 28th. A bus will be available for those 14th IWRTH participants who also plan to attend the ENDO meeting, or wish to return to San Francisco.

The program promises to be exciting, focused on the latest research on the physiology and pathophysiology of thyroid hormone transport, metabolism, and action. The format allows for active participation of young investigators, followed by extensive commentaries and discussions. Since the first meeting in Cambridge UK, some 27 years ago, the workshop has progressively gained support from our colleagues, professional societies and research foundations, with worldwide recognition. Come join us in Monterey California for one more successful IWRTH.
