Dr Euan McCaughey
Euan McCaughey (MEng, PhD, CEng) completed his PhD at the University of Glasgow in 2014, focusing on the use of Abdominal Functional Electrical Stimulation (Abdominal FES) to improve respiratory function after spinal cord injury. He subsequently worked at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, and Macquarie University, Sydney, before joining Neuroscience Research Australia in 2017. He maintains a joint position between Neuroscience Research Australia and the Queen Elizabeth National Spinal Injuries Unit.
Euan’s interest lie in undertaking clinical trials to prove the effectiveness of protocols or technologies designed to improve outcomes for those living with an illness or disability. He has a particular interest in the use of Abdominal Functional Electrical Stimulation (Abdominal FES) to improve respiratory and bowel function, especially for people living with a spinal cord injury. He also studies the epidemiology of spinal cord injury. His expertise in the area of spinal cord injury has seen him appointed to the Editorial Board of Spinal Cord, the leading dedicated spinal cord injuries journal.
