Dr Fatemeh Geranmayeh is a Neurologist and an MRC funded Clinician Scientist at the Computational, Cognitive and Clinical Neuroimaging Laboratory at Imperial College London. She obtained a First Class Honours BSc degree in Neuroscience in 2004 for which she also recieved the Goldberg-Schachmann and Freda Becker Award from the University of London. She obtained her medical degree in 2006 and was awarded an Academic Clinical Fellowship in Neurology in 2008 funded by the NIHR. Subsequently she completed her PhD through a Wellcome Trust Research Training Fellowship in 2015. She then undertook a post-doctoral clinical fellowship at Imperial College London before completing her clinical training.

Her current research investigates the neural mechanisms of recovery of language and cognitive functions after cerebrovascular disease. She uses advanced neuroimaging, artificial intelligence and brain stimulation to study changes in behaviour and neural networks post brain injury. She has a clinical interest in vascular cognitive impairment and language impairment secondary to neurodegenerative diseases.

She is a member of The Clinical Academic Training Forum (CATF), a UK-wide group representing key stakeholders in training the future clinical academic workforce.
