David Sharp is an NIHR Research Professor and honorary consultant neurologist with a special interest in traumatic brain injury. He runs a multidisciplinary traumatic brain injury clinic at Charing Cross hospital and directs a program of research investigating the impact of traumatic brain injury on cognitive function. His research uses advanced neuroimaging to study brain network function, both in healthy individuals and following brain injury. By understanding changes in network function he hopes to guide the development of novel treatment strategies for patients with cognitive impairment following brain injury.
