Dr Harpreet Hyare
I am a Consultant Neuroradiologist at University College London Hospitals (UCLH) NHS Trust and Honorary Clinical Associate Professor at UCL. I am the Lead Teenage and Young Adult (TYA) Neuroradiologist for North London and also hold an Honorary Consultant position at Great Ormond Street Hospital. Having trained in Medicine at University of Cambridge, I completed a PhD at UCL in Neurodegeneration and a visiting Fellowship at University College Los Angeles (UCLA). My research interests include translating novel imaging and computational biomarkers in Neuro-oncology. I am Chair of the Research Subcommittee for the British Neuro-Oncological Society and am Clinical Liaison for the British and Irish Chapter of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine.
Professor Dorothee Auer
I am Professor of Neuroimaging, Director of the Precision Imaging Beacon of Excellence at the University of Nottingham and theme lead for the MRI cross-cutting theme within the NIHR Nottingham Biomedical Research Centre. I hold an Honorary Consultant Neuroradiologist post at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust.
I studied medicine in Duesseldorf (Germany), Belfast (UK) and Munich (Germany) holding a scholarship by the German People Foundation. I then trained as research associate in neurology (LMU, Munich), and as clinical fellow in euroradiology/radiology in Freiburg and Tuebingen. My dissertation (‘DM’, University of Freiburg) and Habilitation (‘PhD’, University of Marburg) focused on neuro MRI and MR spectroscopy. My research focusses on magnetic resonance imaging techniques to advance the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of diseases including Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, depression, chronic pain, stroke, multiple sclerosis, and cancer, and I have received funding from national and International research councils, government and charities (DFG, EU, MRC, EPSRC, NIHR, Versus Arthritis, Stroke, Parkinson’s UK, MJFF). I am a fellow of the ISMRM.
Dr Samantha Mills
Chair, Academic Subcommittee
I have been a Consultant Neuroradiologist since January 2011, and have been based at the Walton Centre NHS Foundation Trust, Liverpool, since 2014. I completed my clinical training in Neuroradiology at the Manchester Radiology Training Scheme, and prior to this I held a joint RCR/CRUK Clinical Research Fellowship during which I undertook a PhD in advanced magnetic resonance imaging of adult brain tumours using novel MR techniques, including dynamic contrast enhanced MRI, diffusion imaging and oxygen enhanced MRI at the University of Manchester. My academic interests include neuro-oncology, imaging biomarkers and translational research. I was a BSNR / RCR du Boulay Professor (2019-2022).

Professor Kyriakos Lobotesis
Professor Kyriakos Lobotesis is a Consultant Interventional Neuroradiologist and currently Head of Specialty, at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. He did his general Neuroradiology training in Cambridge prior to commencing the Boston Scientific Neurointerventional Fellowship in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England. He also worked as a Praticien Attaché at the Hôpital Gui de Chauliac, Montpellier, France with a particular emphasis on endovascular therapies of the brain and spine. Beyond his clinical responsibilities, Professor Lobotesis is a Professor of Practice at Imperial College London and has produced a steady stream of peer-reviewed papers to date. His primary interests lie in new medical devices and technologies and he is currently involved in a number of research trials, with collaborative links nationally and abroad. He was awarded with the British Society of Neuroradiologists Du Boulay visiting Professorship in 2017.
Dr Harriet Joy
Dr Harriet Joy has been a diagnostic neuroradiologist at University Hospital Southampton for 15 years. Her subspecialty interests include neuro-oncology, and she is clinical lead for the adult neuro-oncology MDT, as well as paediatric neuroradiology and epilepsy imaging. She is also a member of the standards subcommittee.
Professor Rob Dineen
I am Professor of Neuroradiology at the University of Nottingham and an honorary consultant Neuroradiologist at the University of Nottingham. I am a past BSNR du Boulay Professor (2014-2016), a previous member for the BSNR Training and Education Sub-Committee (2013-2016) and have been a member of the BSNR Academic Sub-Committee from 2015, prior to taking up the Chair from 2019-2023.

Dr Ian Craven
Chair of the Training and Education Subcommittee
Dr Ian Craven is the current Chair of the Training and Education Subcommittee. He has always been heavily involved in training completing his MEd in 2018. He thinks the BSNR has an incredible opportunity to be at the forefront of neuroradiology training in the UK. This prospect has been reinforced by the outstanding generosity of our members in engaging with education during the recent pandemic. If you have any ideas/comments/opinions about education or training, please get in touch.
