Connor Mallucci – Senior Paediatric Neurosurgery Consultant
I qualified in London at University College in 1989. I underwent neurosurgery training in Birmingham, Nottingham and then Paris. I am committed to improving outcomes in children with brain tumours and hydrocephalus. I have just completed my tenure as chairman of the British Paediatric Neurosurgery Group, and continue to chair their research group. I have published extensively on brain tumours, hydrocephalus and neuroendoscopy. I have over 75 publications in international peer reviewed journals. I am currently deputy editor of the British Journal of Neurosurgery and the associate editor of the journal “Child’s Nervous System”.
