Work carried out by the three organisations has topped a new league published by Expertscape which is dedicated to helping consumers find health professionals with extensive expertise in their specific area.
Professor Ley Sander, consultant neurologist and clinical lead for epilepsy at the NHNN has also been ranked as the world's leading expert on epilepsy. The rankings have been based on published peer-reviewed research over the last 10 years.
Professor Sander, who is also the Epilepsy Society’s medical director, said: “This is tripartite arrangement ensures academic and clinical excellence, patient input and relevance of our medical research. We believe that research into epilepsy represents the best hope of finding a cure for epilepsy, and eventually preventing it altogether.
“It is a fantastic example of academia, NHS services and charity support all coming together for the good of people with epilepsy.”
