Imran Liaquat

Chair of the Local Organising Committee

I am a Consultant Neurosurgeon and Lead Clinician for Surgical Neuro-Oncology at the Edinburgh Centre for Neuro-Oncology at the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh. In addition to my General Neurosurgical training in Edinburgh, I have completed a 12 month Fellowship in Surgical Neuro-Oncology at St Georges` Hospital London. During this Fellowship i developed experience in surgical management of Low Grade Gliomas, Awake Craniotomies for Brain Tumours, Re-do Surgery for Recurrent Tumours and Fluoresence-guided Resection of Glioblastomas.

My research interests include evaluating the benefits of Redo Craniotomy for Recurrent Glioblastomas and investigating the effect surgery may have on Neuropsychological or cognitive deficits which Low Grade Glioma patients may have pre-operatively.
