Prince of Wales's Chair of Childhood Epilepsy
The Prince of Wales’s Chair of Childhood Epilepsy is Europe’s first Chair in Childhood Epilepsy. It was established to integrate research between Young Epilepsy, the epilepsy unit at UCL-Institute of Child Health (ICH) and Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). The collaboration between Young Epilepsy, ICH and GOSH brings together all branches of knowledge about childhood epilepsy to find solutions to one of the world’s most complex and disabling conditions. This unique partnership provides an unrivalled powerhouse of expertise embracing basic scientific and translational research, as well as the entire spectrum of direct patient care and treatment.
Based at ICH and working with the support of Young Epilepsy and GOSH, the Chair Holder co-ordinates input from a multi-disciplinary team working to make a real and enduring difference to young people whose lives have been affected by epilepsy.
Professor Brian Neville was appointed the first Prince of Wales’s Chair of Childhood Epilepsy in 2004 and was succeeded by Professor Helen Cross in 2007.
