The clinical science group supports a wide range of research ranging from the purely clinical setting, based at the University of North Staffordshire Hospital site and the associated Guy Hilton Research Centre, through to basic science with an emphasis on the translational opportunities “from bench to bedside”.

Neurology research interests include

  1. Molecular genetics in MS, with regard to susceptibility and outcome/disability 
  2. Vision studies to compare functional deficit by psychophysics with pathophysiology and MRI of the optic nerve and visual pathway in the brain.
  3. Neuropsychological deficits following stroke; handedness; neurological complications of hyponatraemia; stroke treatment; chronic fatigue syndrome,
  4. The ability of stem cells for neuronal differentiation, as prospective therapies for Parkinson’s and Huntington’s diseases.
