Conference Speakers 2019

After a fantastic conference in 2018, we have invited world-leading neurosurgeons, neurologists and neuroscientists to Glasgow to deliver talks on exciting research and advances in the field of neurology. There will be a range in the presentation topics, with more information on the guest speakers to follow in due course.

Once again, the conference will be held in the beautiful Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow.

Dr Goodrich is the director of the Division of Paediatric Neurosurgery, and Professor of Clinical Neurological Surgery, Paediatrics, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. He is also a professor of Neurological Surgery at the University of Palermo, Italy.

His special interests include complex craniofacial abnormalities, as a member of the Craniofacial Centre at Montefiore, and most notably has become the world-leading expert in the separation of craniopagus twins. He has pioneered the practice of performing smaller separate surgeries as opposed to one single larger operation on such twins.

Dr Wilson is a consultant neurosurgeon and pre-hospital care specialist within the Imperial College, Bart's, & London NHS Trusts. He is a medic as part of the London Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS), and along with these responsibilities has worked extensively overseas in countries such as South Africa, Australia, and India. He has also been involved in expedition medicine to Everest Base Camp and within the Arctic.

His neurosurgical interests include acute brain injury, hypoxia, intracranial pressure monitoring, and intracranial tumours. His training puts him in the relatively unique position of experience in the full pathway of head trauma - from pre-surgery all the way to rehab - and his research focuses on these areas.

Dr Wiggam is a consultant physician and clinical director of stroke services in the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust, and an honorary clinical lecturer at Queen University, Belfast. He is a member of the steering committee of the Northern Ireland Stroke Network, as well as a member of the Clinical Standards Committee of the British Association of Stroke Physicians.


Following research on insulin resistance and the metabolic aspects of vascular disease, he was awarded an MD in 1997. After appointment as consultant physician, he helped to develop the stroke thrombolysis service in Northern Ireland, and continues to be closely involved in the reshaping of stroke services in NI.

Dr Zadeh is currently an Associate Professor at the Department of Surgery within the University of Toronto, and a Neurosurgeon-Scientist at the Toronto Western Hospital & Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. She is also the Wilkins Family Chair in Brain Tumour Research, the co-director of the Elizabeth Raab Neurofibromatosis Program, and the director of the UHN Brain Tumour Biobank.

Her clinical practice is focused on skull base neuro-oncology which includes pituitary, brain metastases, gamma knife, and neurofibromatosis clinics. Her research focuses on the molecular mechanisms of glioma angiogenesis and molecular regulators of tumour metabolism, as well as her translational program aimed at establishing the genomic landscape of meningiomas and schwanommas.

Dr Diserens is a neurologist specialising in physical medicine & rehabilitation, currently conducting research within the Department of Clinical Neurosciences at Lausanne University Hospital, Switzerland.

After co-founding the Swiss Neurorehabilitation Society and contributing to quality criteria of acute and post-acute neurorehabilitation in Switzerland, her current research goals focus around evaluating diagnosis of disorders of consciousness as well as the effects of neurosensorial stimulation and hyper-acute mobilisation via a brain-computer interface in the acute phase.
