Consultant Neuropathologist & Honorary Clinical Associate Professor,
After initial training in Biochemistry at Queen Mary College, University of London, Dr Scott Studied for a D.Phil in the Department of Human Anatomy, University of Oxford. This work was supervised by Dr H.M. Charlton FRS, and involved applying molecular techniques to study the neuroendocrine regulation of pituitary gland hormone gene expression in normal mice and mice having specific reproductive hormone defects. The D.Phil. Thesis was combined with the 1st BM examination in Medicine and, following completion of a period of post-doctoral studies, Dr Scott completed the MB BS degree at the London Hospital Medical College. Following house posts, Dr Scott trained in Histopathology at the Royal London and St Bartholomew's Hospitals before moving to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge to train in Neuropathology. This training was interrupted by a three year post as a Research Clinician at the MRC Cancer Cell Unit under Professor R.A. Laskey FRS, studying regulation of cell cycle parameters in glioblastomas and other malignancies. This period of work was submitted for the degree of Doctor of Medicine in the University of London. Dr Scott then moved to the Queen's Medical Centre, Nottingham as Senior Registrar to Professor J. S. Lowe and Dr D.K. Robson. Dr Scott's first consultant post was at the Hull Royal Infirmary in 2007 and, in 2011, he returned to the Queen's Medical Centre as Consultant in Neuropathology and was awarded a Honorary Clinical Associate Professorship in collaboration with Professor Dorothee Auer. Dr Scott's research interests now mainly concern neuroanatomical correlations with neuroradiological imaging techniques in support of research performed by Professor Auer and her team. Dr Scott is also Clinical Lead for the Mortuary and Bereavement Service and is Designated Individual for the Post Mortem & Research Licences under the Human Tissue Authority.
