Institute Presentation

UCL (University College London) is one of UK’s premier universities and a world-class research and teaching institution based in London with an annual turnover approaching £500 million and involvement in more than 400 EU-funded research collaborations; a world-class multidisciplinary research and teaching institution, whose staff and former students have included 19 Nobel Prize winners.  Founded in 1826, UCL was the first university in England to admit students regardless of race, religion or gender. It continues to thrive on the creativity and diversity of its community which today comprises 8,000 staff, and 12,000 undergraduates and 7,000 graduate students from 130 countries across the globe.

In partnership with Great Ormond Street Hospital and as part of UCL, the Institute of Child Health is the leading British academic research institution for child health and has an international reputation in many areas of child health including epilepsy research. Examples of external recognition for our work include the maximum Grade 5*A that was awarded to ICH in the 2001 HEFCE Research Assessment Exercise, one of only four in clinical sciences. The epilepsy research programme within this unit has an international reputation with an extensive output of publications and high success rate in obtaining external peer-reviewed funding. It is currently also involved as a partner in the European project EPICURE and in EUROPED.

The UCL Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Institute for Women’s Health, a joint venture between two world-renowned institutions, University College London (UCL) and University College London Hospital (UCLH) brings together individuals with expertise across the whole spectrum of women’s health from maternal and fetal medicine to clinical skills to social and behavioural sciences, both in the UK and internationally, by pioneering research, education programmes and clinical initiatives.

University College London Hospital (UCLH) has a large level III perinatal centre with a specific interest in perinatal brain injury.

Ronit Pressler has a national and international reputation in the field of diagnosis and treatment of neonatal seizures and has wide experience in antiepileptic drug studies in neonates and children with epilepsy.
Neil Marlow
is Director of the Institute for Women’s Health and current President of the European Society for Paediatric Research. His research interests include early care of the newborn, particularly in relation to brain development and injury, and he has led several large studies in the field including EPICure - a national cohort study of birth before 26 weeks of gestation that has guided national policy.
Janet Rennie has very wide clinical experience, with over 20 years in full time neonatal practice and a knowledge base supplemented by editing and writing textbooks of neonatology. She has a special interest in neonatal brain injury and neonatal seizures.
