My research programme was established in 2014, supporting the NIHR SRMRC`s strategic priority of understanding the brain in physiological and pathological states. Our focus has been on understanding the way the brain responds to injury and the reparative processes. This is achieved by a good mixture of basic sciences research and advanced clinical trials. Across our research programme, we aim to understand the dynamic impact of acute brain injury modulation or enhancement of recovery with various neurotherapeutic options. Tonny would accept PhD and MD students.
