The final lectures in 2017 are on 12th December 2017

"My research work in the field of epilepsy neuropathology, aiming to identify biomarkers and causes of sudden death in epilepsy, has been made possible through working alongside the exemplary and enthusiastic team of neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuropsychologists as well as the neuroscientists in the Department of Clinical and Experimental Epilepsy and Neuropathology. It has been my great privilege to be involved in this research, which is ultimately dependent on the altruism of the many patients and next of kin who donate tissue for Epilepsy research’" Professor Maria Thom 
"It has been exciting and a privilege to work at the UCL Institute of Neurology which has provided many opportunities for collaborative research which have been productive and enjoyable. It has been a real pleasure to work with the dedicated and talented team at the Queen Square Brain Bank on projects at the forefront of neuropathology research and providing a neurodegenerative disease tissue resource for the international research community" Professor Janice Holton
