Ian Anderson

Mr Ian Anderson is a Consultant Neurosurgeon at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust and Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Leeds. His clinical practice focuses on neurovascular and skull base neurosurgery. He has previously published on a variety of neurosurgical topics. Current clinical research projects include those focussed on: subarachnoid haemorrhage, traumatic brain injury, and meningioma. Mr Anderson is a local PI for several multi-centre trials as well as supervising several research projects in Leeds.


Diederik Bulters


Diederik Bulters is a vascular neurosurgeon with a research interest in traumatic and haemorrhagic brain injury. the central theme to his research are the mechanisms of poor outcome following haemorrhagic stroke and particularly the deleterious effects of haemoglobin and how these may be ameliorated. Working in close conjunction with collaborators at the university and industry he is trying to steer several new therapeutics from bench to bedside. He also holds grants from the TBS, EPSRC and EU investigating non-invasive measures of ICP, diversity of autoregulation in the human brain (both normally and after stroke or SAH), and spectral and hyper-spectral techniques to distinguish tumnours intraoperatively. He is also involved with a group who are focussing on the use of specimens resected at surgery to characterise the properties of human cortex with focus on electrophysiology. He is also principal investigator for a large number of neurosurgical multicentre trials


Giles Critchley


Giles Critchley is a consultant neurosurgeon at Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS trust and Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer at  Brighton and Sussex Medical School. His MD was in cerebral ischaemia following subarachnoid haemorrhage. Research interests include management of patients with high grade gliomas, outcome following spinal surgery and cerebral blood flow in the microcirculation. Local research collaborations with CISC, SHORE-C and School of Biological Sciences at the University of Sussex.


Jeremy Holland


Jeremy Holland is a graduate of St George's Medical School with a 1st class Honours BSc in embryology. His neurosurgical training took place in London and Newcastle. He was awarded a Masters in experimental stroke model under Professor A Bell.  He has been a neurosurgeon at the Greater Manchester Neurosciences Centre, Salford Royal Hospital since 1998. His special interests are vascular and complex spine. His research interests are in unruptured intracranial aneurysm morphology, SAH and acquired hydrocephalus.


Mohsen Javadpour


Mohsen Javadpour is a consultant neurosurgeon in Dublin with a particular academic interest in subarachnoid haemorrhage, brain aneurysms and vascular malformations, pituitary tumours and craniopharyngiomas


Peter Kirkpatrick


Peter Kirkpatrick is a neurosurgeon based in Cambridge with about 12 years experience. His specialist practice is in carotid disease and cerebral vascular disease, including aneurysm surgery. He was awarded Hospital Doctor Award in 1999. In addition, he has a clinical and research interest in head injury and all aspects of spinal disease, including lumbar and cervical disc disease. he is a member of the stroke association and works on their specific board. He has gathered over £3 million of research income and supervised a number of higher degrees. He has over 200 publications and sits on a number of working parties to improve neurosurgical and spinal care. Approximately 50 per cent of his additional work relates to medico-legal issues for all aspects of neurosurgery.


Nitin Mukerji


Nitin Mukerji is a Consultant Neurosurgeon at James Cook University Hospital, Middlesbrough. After training in the Northern Deanery, he completed a Cerebrovascular and Skull base fellowship at Stanford University, was a visiting fellow at UCSF and obtained a masters in applied statistics.  Prior to joining Neurosurgery, he had completed a residency in Ophthalmology with a special interest in corneal disease. His research interests include epidemiology of cerebrovascular conditions, morphological basis of aneurysm rupture, non-invasive ICP monitoring and cerebral revascularization. He is also involved in research in the field of neuro-oncology and CSF dynamics.


Mario Teo


Mario Teo is a Consultant Neurosurgeon and Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at Bristol Institute of Clinical Neuroscience, North Bristol University Hospital, having completed a Cerebrovascular and Skull Base fellowship at Stanford University, California, USA. He has a special interest in minimally invasive neurosurgery (cranial and spine), management of skull base tumours and vascular pathologies including endoscopic endonasal approaches and cerebral revascularizations.


His research focus includes moyamoya disease, cerebral aneurysm, arteriovenous malformation, cavernoma, schwannoma, meningioma, skull base tumours and neurocutaneous disorders. He authored numerous peer-reviewed publications, editorials, book chapters, and is also an advocate of collaborative clinical and scientific research, at local, national and international level.


Rikin Trivedi


Rikin Trivedi has specialist interests in spinal, cerebrovascular and skull base surgery having received sub-speciality fellowship training in these areas in the USA. Whilst on fellowship, he gained proficiency in minimally invasive (keyhole) surgery techniques and performed the first keyhole lumbar discectomy in the region, shortly after his return. His spinal practice includes treatment of spinal trauma, infection and tumours, and all aspects of degenerative spinal disease including disc prolapse and spinal stenosis. 80% of spinal practice is now performed using minimally invasive (keyhole) techniques including day case lumbar discectomy and decompressions.

His research interests to date have been in developing novel imaging techniques for assessment of vascular disease and have evolved to evaluate novel strategies in the treatment of spinal disorders. He has supervised numerous research student projects and currently co-supervise a PhD student thesis. He has trained fellows in both cerebrovascular and spine surgery, and is currently Co-Director of the Cambridge Spine Fellowship.
