Dr Lara Prisco

Consultant in Neuroanaesthesia and Critical Care, Oxford

In 2012, after I completed my specialist training in Anaesthesia, Intensive Care and Hyperbaric Medicine in Italy (Trieste) I moved to the UK. I obtained a fellowship in Intensive Care at the General Intensive Care Unit of the University College Hospital in London, followed by the first Critical Care Echocardiography fellowship at St George’s Hospital, and lately subspecialised in Neuroanaesthesia and Neurointensive Care Medicine at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in London and Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge.

In 2013, I obtained a Master in Science in Pediatric Intensive Care Medicine at Catholic University in Rome (Italy). In 2014, I was later appointed as Clinical Lecturer at the University Department of Anaesthesia in Cambridge to further my research interests.  Since May 2016, I work as a Consultant in Neuroanaesthesia and Critical Care at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford where I have developed and lead the continuous EEG service. Since March 2018, I am a part-time Academic Clinician and was awarded an NIHR Fellowship. I am a Senior Clinical Research Fellow at the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences with an NHS Research leadership role in Neurocritical care.
