Part of the University of Bristol's Institute of Clinical Neurosciences, the Functional Neurosurgery Research Group is focussed on developing novel techniques of direct intracranial drug delivery and deep brain stimulation surgery.
Funded by the Medical Research Council, The Cure Parkinson's Trust and the Friends of Bristol Oncology Centre, our drug delivery research programme is based at the Avon Orthopaedic Centre at Southmead Hospital.
Our pioneering work in deep brain stimulation surgery is based at Frenchay Hospital where we have developed a unique method of implanting deep brain stimulating electrodes using high resolution MRI scans.
