A Celebration of the Life and Work of Professor Brian Neville

Professor Neville Protrait_0.jpgUCL is celebrating the life and work of Professor Brian Neville, founding member of the College who was appointed the first UK Chair of Paediatric Neurology.

Upon retirement, Professor Neville was also the initial incumbent of the Prince of Wales’s Chair of Childhood Epilepsy until 2007. On arrival at the Institute he set on an expansion of both the academic and clinical neuroscience departments, responsible for the expansion of development of the epilepsy surgery programme and ultimately the complex epilepsy unit, as well as a combined neurological approach to neurodisability.

Throughout his career, the training and development of juniors in the specialty was key; he contributed on an international level to standardisation of training in paediatric neurology. Above all, he was an extremely caring man, who always thought of the children and their families first and foremost.
