Tipu Aziz, Ph. D., FMedSci

Senior Fellow

Professor Aziz is the founder and head of functional neurosurgery at the University of Oxford. His work with primates has been central to confirming the subthalamic nucleus (and more recently the pedunculopontine nucleus) as a possible surgical target for deep brain stimulation in Parkinson’s Disease. Oxford Functional Neurosurgery (OFN) is currently one of the busiest centres for such surgery in the UK and is very productive academically.

His research interests are the role of the upper brain stem in the control of movement, the clinical neurophysiology of movement disorders and neuropathic pain and autonomic responses to deep brain stimulation, use of MR and MEG imaging in functional neurosurgery.
