Martin Turner

Professor of Clinical Neurology and Neuroscience

Martin Turner qualified in Medicine from University of Cambridge and St. George’s Hospital Medical School London and trained in Neurology in London and Oxford. He is Professor of Clinical Neurology & Neuroscience within Oxford University’s Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, and Consultant Neurologist to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. His PhD, under the supervision of Professor Leigh at King’s College London, applied ligand PET to explore the then emerging concept of brain pathology in sporadic and familial cases of MND. His subsequent research has been in the development of biomarkers from neuroimaging (MRI and MEG) and biofluid assays, to accelerate therapy discovery. He has been the recipient of both Medical Research Council Clinician Scientist and Senior Clinical Fellowships, the ENCALS Investigator Award and the Royal College of Physicians Graham Bull Prize. He chairs the Research Committee of the Association of British Neurologists.
