Academic looking at brain scans


The Neurology team is a proud member of Nottingham medical school, contributing to the teaching of doctors and healthcare professionals. The team, headed by Professor Nikos Evangelou, engages in international high-quality research.

Strands of our research include:

  • DELIVER MS– Multicentre trial between the USA and UK studying 800 patients with MS, determining what the best approach for treatment is at the early stages of disease.
  • DECISIve - Multicentre trial, exploring whether lumbar punctures can replace MRI in the early stages of diagnosis.
  • NEuRoMs– Research programme, funded by NIHR providing screening and cognitive rehabilitation to MS patients.
  • OPM-MEG - Work exploring how the brain controls balance and walking.

Professor Gran leads work studying EBV, collaborating with teams in the UK and Italy. The department has strong links with Nottingham University Hospital, with projects supported by the MRC CARP awards, on dementia run by Dr Hosseini, and artificial intelligence by Dr Tanasescu.

Symptom management is often neglected by academic departments but it's very important for our team researching the cause of fatigue, poor balance, and pain.

Staying in employment is key for the psychological and economic wellbeing of patients and we work with the vocational rehabilitation team of Professor Kate Radford. We consider psychology very important, and currently run projects with trainee clinical psychologists at Trent DClinPsy.

The team is multinational, friendly, and enthusiastic. We support masters and PhD students and are keen to produce impactful research, using the OPM-MEG and the forthcoming 11.7T MRI facilities in Nottingham, so we can better understand the brain and help people with neurological diseases.
