ADrenal REsearch Network for a Lifelong cure


Welcome to the home of A.D.R.E.N.A.L. Research

On this website you can find out more about our work, our team, and how to get in contact with us.

The aim of A.D.R.E.N.A.L. is to identify genetic mutations that cause Primary Adrenal Insufficiency (PAI). To achieve this we utilise various genetic testing methods to diagnose patients that have been referred to us. So far our cohort of referrals stands at >400 patients from over 30 different countries, in which we have a genetic diagnosis for 2/3 and climbing.

If you have a patient with suspected PAI please get in contact and we will endeavour to provide you with a genetic diagnosis completely free of charge. 

To contact us please email our Research Lead Prof Lou Metherell (

Important: We are a purely research based group and therefore all genetic diagnoses may have to be validated by a NHS or nationally accredited facility.
