About Us

Our research group is based within the Paediatric Neurosciences Department at the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow, Scotland.

Within our Paediatric Neurosciences Department, we host a range of teaching and research opportunities including weekly teaching sessions with regular invited external speakers. Members of our research team are also regularly invited to share their expertise at meetings and conferences locally and internationally.


We welcome students for training and project participation, and regularly host clinical observerships and fellowships for national and international trainees. Please contact us if you would like to discuss any opportunities.


Our key research themes are:

Precision therapies

Genetic conditions & outcomes

Causes of epilepsy


Please see our Research section for information on our recent projects & trials.
