Sophie J Camp MA(Oxon), PhD, MBBS, FRCS(Neurosurg.):

I undertook my first degree in Experimental Psychology at Corpus Christi College, Oxford, and went on to complete a PhD at the Institute of Neurology, Queen Square. My thesis was entitled "Memory Function in Multiple Sclerosis", and was funded by the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. I then studied Medicine at the Royal Free and University College Medical School and completed Neurosurgery Training on the London (North Thames) Rotation. In 2015 I was awarded an NIHR Academic Clinical Lectureship working specifically in neuro-oncology.

I have been a Consultant Neurosurgeon at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust since 2016, and became an Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer at Imperial College London in 2017. My main research interests are neuro-oncology and cranial trauma. Within the field of neuro-oncology, I am particularly interested in developing the use of intraoperative ultrasound in brain tumour resection, and the analyses of these images. I am co-Chief Investigator of FUTURE-GB (FUncTional and Ultrasound guided REsection in GlioBlastoma) an NIHR EME funded multicentre, randomised controlled, intraoperative trial evaluating whether these additional tools improve quality of life for glioblastoma patients and outcome. I am also a PhD, MRes, and MSc supervisor, and co-lead of the Translational Brain Tumour Group.
