Health Foundation/Academy of Medical Sciences Clinician Scientist Fellow
Dr Virginia Newcombe completed her PhD in neuroimaging and traumatic brain injury in 2009. Her research interests include using imaging as a biomarker for prognosis, the trajectory of traumatic brain injury and outcomes after critical illness.
With projects based in the Emergency Department and Neurosciences Critical Care Unit her research encompasses the entire spectrum of TBI from mild to severe. She divides her time between research and clinical training in intensive care and emergency medicine.
NIHR Clinical Academic Fellow
Dr Sophie Richter is an NIHR Clinical Academic Fellow and a speciality trainee in Emergency Medicine. Her research interests focus on diagnostic decision making in the emergency setting, especially the diagnosis and prognosis of mild-moderate traumatic brain injury.
