Mr Richard Selway has been a Consultant Neurosurgeon in King’s College Hospital since 2001. He studied medicine and neuroanatomy in Cambridge before qualifying in 1989. His specialist training was in Cambridge, Oxford, Birmingham and finally in London where he completed a Fellowship in functional neurosurgery. He was awarded the Norman Dott Gold Medal by the Royal College of Surgeons in 1999. He is specialised in the neurosurgical treatment of epilepsy and movement disorders in both adults and children, with a nationwide, as well as international, referral base for both disorders.
Dr. Eduardo C. Ribas is a board certified neurosurgeon from Brazil. After finishing his medical and neurosurgery training at the University of São Paulo, he made fellowships with Prof. Albert Rhoton Jr in Gainesville, USA, centered in microsurgical anatomy of the brain and its white matter connections and with Prof. Hugues Duffau in Montpellier, France, to understanding the brain functional organization during awake neurosurgeries. Currently he belongs to the neurosurgery staff of “Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein” and “Hospital das Clínicas”, University of São Paulo, and is dedicated to brain tumor research and neuroanatomy
Dr. Eugenio Abela is a clinical neurologist from Switzerland currently working at the Prof. Richardson Lab for Epilepsy, King’s College London. He is interested in using advanced neuroimaging techniques to better understand, diagnose and treat epilepsies. Dr. Abela is currently investigating thalamo-cortical connections in generalised epilepsies, and testing their value as diagnostic biomarkers. For this project, he has been awarded a Marie-Curie International Fellowship.
Dr Sandrine Thuret is the Head of the Adult Neurogenesis and Mental Health Lab, Deputy Head of the Cells and Behaviour Unit, Senior Lecturer in Neural Stem Cells in the Basic and Clinical Neuroscience Department at the Institute of Psychiatry Psychology and Neuroscience (IoPPN), King's College London, UK. The central theme of the Dr Thuret lab is postnatal and adult hippocampal neurogenesis, which is implicated in memory formation and mood regulation.
