CURRENT EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE
Dr. Jaleel Miyan
Neuroscientist with a focus on the role of CSF and cerebral folate metabolism in development and how it goes wrong, as well as in neural control of health and how this is linked to neurodevelopment and neurodevelopmental disorders.
Mr. Ian Pople
Associate Professor of Neurological Surgery at Sidra Medicine in Doha, Qatar. Previously, Consultant Adult and Pediatric Neurosurgeon in Bristol UK, where he carried out research with Andrew Whitelaw on new endoscopic treatments for neonatal hydrocephalus (DRIFT study).
Will Singleton PhD FRCS
Consultant paediatric neurosurgeon at Bristol Royal Hospital for Children and the University of Bristol, UK. Clinical interests in the care of children with hydrocephalus and spina bifida and paediatric functional neurosurgery for epilepsy and movement disorders. Research interests in translational neurosurgery, central nervous system drug delivery for hydrocephalus and brain tumours and the application of robotics to paediatric neurosurgery.
Dr. Jo Glazier
Research scientist whose focus is the regulation of placental transport in health and disease, with an interest too in the developmental function of the yolk sac and the programming of fetal neurodevelopmental disorders.
Prof. John Pickard CBE
Emeritus Professor of Neurosurgery (Cambridge UK) whose research has focussed on advancing the care of patients with CSF disorders, acute brain injury and prolonged disorders of consciousness through functional brain imaging, studies of pathophysiology and new treatments together with related health economic and ethical aspects.
Prof. Pat McAllister
Research scientist exploring the pathophysiology of pediatric hydrocephalus with a focus on experimental models, neuro-development, neuroimaging, surgical and pharmacological treatments.
Andrew H D Wynd MBE, MIoD
Leads a professional charitable organisation in Scotland supporting children, young people and adults with SB/H, including Strategic Leadership for the Clinical, Innovation and Research Team within the organisation.
Dr. Carolyn Harris
Dr. Carolyn Harris is a Tenured Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, USA. Her translational research in hydrocephalus is focused on understanding the reasons shunt treatments fail on a cellular and molecular level. Using her biomedical engineering and neuroscience background, she has developed several novel approaches to shunt design, and collaborates with many clinical and experimental collaborators in these efforts.
Neurosurgery resident with a clinical focus on pediatric neurosurgery and translational research, utilizing genomics, proteomics, proteogenomics and animal models to identify targetable pathways in the pathogenesis of hydrocephalus.
Dr Hannah Botfield
Research scientist interested in understanding the pathology behind CSF dysfunction in disorders such as hydrocephalus and haemorrhagic stroke, with an emphasis on the role of inflammation, matrix biology and drug delivery.
Dr. Takayuki Inagaki
Pediatric Neurosurgeon whose research interest is to find the cause of hydrocephalus and spina bifida. He is now trying to find the relation between MRI findings and clinical symptoms in mild tethered cord cases.
As the SRHSB Webmaster, I am in charge of the website updates, maintenance and development. I am delighted to support the important work of this wonderful society.
