Dr William Stewart

  • Honorary Clinical Associate Professor, Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer (School of Medicine)

Research interests

Dr Stewart is Consultant and Lead Neuropathologist at the Southern General Hospital, Glasgow, and holds honorary Associate Professor status at the University of Glasgow (School of Medicine) and the University of Pennsylvania (Department of Neurosurgery).

He has subspecialty diagnostic and research interests in forensic neuropathology, in particular traumatic brain injury, and neuro-oncology, with a focus on molecular sub-typing of adult high-grade gliomas. Recent studies in TBI describe the range of pathologies encountered in acute and long term survivors of head injury, with reference to pathologies linking TBI to neurodegenerative disease; work supported by major national and international grants from the US National Institutes of Health, the US Department of Defense and the Chief Scientist’s Office in Scotland.
