Laura Iconaru

I graduated in medicine in 2000 at the University of Medicine and Pharmacy Craiova, Romania. I obtained my specialist certificate as endocrinologist in 2006 at the National Institute of Endocrinology, Bucharest, Romania and I continued to work there until 2013. I successfully defended my first PhD thesis entitled "Biological, clinical and genetic correlations in medullary thyroid carcinoma” in 2010 studying at the University of Medicine and Pharmacy “Carol Davila” in Bucharest. Immediately after arriving in Brussels in 2013 I start working at the Brugmann University Hospital, where I am the Head of Endocrinology Department since 2020.

In June 2022, I successfully defended my second PhD thesis entitled “Imminent osteoporotic fractures in postmenopausal women: risk factors, development of prediction models and management - Personal contributions from the FRISBEE-study” at ULB in Belgium.

I am co-investigator in FRISBEE-study since 2015. I have several scientific publications in international peer-reviewed journals including in the osteoporosis field and I am a member of national and international endocrine organizations.
