My current role

I am proud to be part of the excellent multidisciplinary team at the Addenbrooke's memory clinic, which has supported people with dementia for over 30 years.  I believe that excellence in clinical care is can best be achieved in partnership with research and innovation.  I aim to provide everyone with or at-risk of dementia the opportunity to take part in research; and spend much of my working week leading research into the causes and treatment of dementias.

In addition to research and teaching, I lead the neurodegeneration and dementia theme of the Biomedical Research Centre; am director of the Cambridge Centre for Frontotemporal Dementia; associate director of Dementias Platform UK; and chief scientific adviser to Alzheimers Research UK.

Previous history

Before joining CUH (Addenbrookes) in 2005, I trained for neurology in Copenhagen and London, after my PhD (2001), and training in medicine at Oxford (1994) and Psychology at Cambridge (1991).

Membership and accreditations

I am a member of the Academy of Medical Sciences, the Royal Society for Medicine, the Society for Neuroscience and International Movement Disorders Society and International Society for Frontotemporal Dementia, and the British Medical Association.

Personal interests
