Dr. Samantha Mills is a full-time diagnostic neuroradiologist at the Walton Centre NHS Foundation trust, Liverpool. She trained at Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust as part of the Manchester Training Scheme and undertook a PhD evaluating advanced MRI techniques for use in Neuro-oncology at the University of Manchester, funded jointly by the RCR and CRUK. She has since maintained a strong academic interest and is involved in a number of active neuro-oncology and neuro-inflammatory research projects both locally and nationally. She is a regular speaker at both RCR and BIR meetings. She holds positions on the National Cancer Research Institute Brain Studies Group, the academic subcommittee of BSNR (as deputy chair), and the British Neuro-Oncology Society, (as Chair of the Education subcommittee).

She undertook the neuroradiology sub-specialty fellowship at the department of neuroradiology of Toulouse University Hospital and also obtained the interuniversity diploma of diagnostic and therapeutic neuroradiology in France. In the UK she worked as consultant neuroradiologist at the Royal London Hospital and as clinical research associate and the department of perinatal imaging and Health, King’s College London, St Thomas’ Hospital, before joining the NHNN. Research interests: Dr Pegoretti Baruteau is an honorary associate professor of UCL in the maternal and fetal medicine department and has research interest in brain development, fetal and neonatal imaging. She also has research interest in advanced MR imaging techniques, especially in the support for the diagnosis of vascular, oncology and inflammatory neurological diseases in both paediatric and adult population.

He has degrees in medicine and clinical neuroscience from the University of Glasgow. He trained in general medicine and then general radiology at Glasgow Royal Infirmary and the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, obtaining membership of the Royal College of Physicians and fellowship of the Royal College of Radiologists. He was awarded a research degree in stroke medicine at University College London and has completed a neuroradiology fellowship based primarily at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery and Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children.
Dr Saleh Lamin trained in interventional neuroradiology at the institute of neurological sciences in Glasgow UK. He has been practicing Neurointervention since 2001 and appointed as a consultant in Neurointerventional radiology at the University Hospital Birmingham in 2004. His main areas of interest are intracranial flow diversion and intrasaccular devices.
