Professor Geoffrey Raisman

1 February 2017

It is with deepest regret and sympathy that we announce the death of Professor Geoffrey Raisman.

Professor G Raisman

A pioneer in his field, Professor Raisman joined the Department of Brain Repair and Rehabilitation at the Institute of Neurology (IoN) in 2005, where he established a dedicated Spinal Repair Unit.

Professor Alan Thompson, Dean of the Faculty of Brain Sciences, said, "Geoff was a true pioneer with extraordinary commitment and vision. His legacy lives on in his team who will continue translating his work for patient benefit."

You can read Professor Raisman's obituary on the IoN website. Our thoughts are with Professor Raisman's wife and family.
