Deepak Chandrasekharan, NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow
I am an NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow combining Core Surgical Training in the London Deanery with research working with the evidENT team at the UCL Ear Institute.
I studied preclinical medicine at Cambridge graduating with a degree in Physiology, Development and Neuroscience. I completed my clinical training at Oxford and worked as an Academic Foundation Doctor in the Oxford deanery. My research work included studying immunological tolerance with the Transplant Immunology group (TRIG) as well as working with the Cleft Lip and Palate priority setting partnership of the James Lind Alliance.
I am now working with clinicians, basic scientists and industry to identify areas for future research in ENT to develop a PhD proposal.
I also enjoy teaching and teach neuroscience to undergraduate medical students and am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
