Professional background

Dr Harpreet Hyare is a Consultant Neuroradiologist at UCLH NHS Trust and also holds an academic position as a Senior Clinical Researcher in the Department of Neurodegenerative Diseases, UCL Institute of Neurology.  After completing the Pan-London Rotation in Neuroradiology, she was a visiting Neuroradiology Fellow at University College Los Angeles (UCLA) where she gained experience in state of the art stroke imaging and intervention. She has recently completed a PhD at UCL and her interest is in translating quantitative MRI from the research setting into clinical practice, particularly in monitoring disease progression and effects of therapeutic intervention.
