BiographyNick Fox is Professor of Clinical Neurology at the Institute of Neurology, University College London and visiting Professor at the Vrije University Amsterdam. He is consultant neurologist to the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, London. His first degree was in Physics and Physiology from Cambridge University. He subsequently graduated in Medicine from the University of London and then specialised in cognitive neurology. He has held research fellowships from the Alzheimer’s Society and subsequently from the Medical Research Council (MRC). His research has focused on MRI in Alzheimer's disease and related disorders. He has developed techniques for registration-based atrophy measurements from serial MRI. Using these techniques he has shown that rates of cerebral atrophy predict conversion to AD from mild cognitive impairment and that rates of atrophy correlate with clinical decline. These techniques are now widely used in longitudinal studies and clinical trials in AD and in a number of other neurological conditions.  He has been an advisor to the European Medicines Agency and to the US FDA and NIH on these issues. He has also been involved in longitudinal studies of familial at-risk individuals and has interests in the earliest cognitive and clinical features of AD, frontotemporal dementia and related disorders.
