Neurotrauma / Neurosurgery / Neurovascular

Surgical interventions for conditions such as neurotrauma, brain tumours and vascular disorders are constantly being refined by scientists in this field.

Interactions between clinical scientists in this area and basic scientists in the areas of development/stem cells/repair are increasing rapidly in order to translate basic discoveries into treatment strategies.

This field also has close links with research in cardiovascular disorders.
