Nikos Evangelou

Clinical Associate Professor, Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences



I did my undergraduate studies in Greece and the UK and trained as a neurologist in Oxford and Nottingham.

I gained my DPhil in Oxford studying axonal damage in MS with MRI and histopathology. Since 2003 i have been appointed Consultant Neurologist at Nottingham University Hospital. In 2011 i joined the university as a Clinical Associate Professor in Neurology.

In 2012 i became clinical lead for the department of Neurology, at the Nottingham University Hospital.

Expertise Summary

Clinically i run regular general neurology clinics but my clinical expertise lies in Multiple Sclerosis and Headache management. I lead a translational group of clinicians and scientists aiming to understand better the pathophysiology of Multiple Sclerosis. I have participated in most major clinical trials in MS.

Our current MRI research focuses in facilitating the early recognition of demyelinating disorders and quick diagnosis of MS through the demonstration of the pathogenic central vein in demyelinating lesions. We work on 3T and 7T MRI scanners at the Medical school and SPMMR centre. In addition we study remyelination in the grey and white matter in vivo using mainly high resolution MTR imaging. Our third main focus of research is the study of metabolism, use of oxygen, and perfusion in MS using MRI, MEG and clinical studies.
