Dr Jonathan Coles

Consultant in Neuroanaesthesia and Critical Care, Cambridge

In 2006 I was appointed as an Academic Consultant working within the Neurosciences Critical Care Unit (NCCU) and providing neuroanaesthesia at Cambridge University Hospitals. I am also an examiner for the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine, Royal College of Anaesthetists, UK.

I completed my clinical and academic training in Anaesthesia & Intensive Care Medicine in the Eastern region. My PhD was in the field of neuro-imaging (MR and Positron Emission Tomography (PET)) following traumatic brain injury (TBI). I was awarded a Clinician Scientist Fellowship from the Academy of Medical Sciences/Health Foundation in 2004 and have maintained a research program funded by the Wellcome Trust, Medical Research Council (UK), European Union, and National Institute of Academic Anaesthesia that examines mechanisms responsible for secondary neuronal injury, their temporal profile, and implications for eventual neurocognitive recovery following TBI. I have published extensively within the field of neurosciences & critical care and am a reviewer for relevant specialist medical journals and national/international grant awarding bodies.
