Functional Neurosurgery

I am a post-doctoral research associate with a background in molecular oncology. I’ve been working for Professor Steven Gill for the past three years. During this time, my focus has been the preclinical analysis of drugs and drug combinations for administration to brain tumours by intermittent convection-enhanced delivery.


Existing collaborations relevant to drug delivery

As part of the Functional Neurosurgery group, we have links with Renishaw PLC and Midatech.
