Staff Profile

Dr Dipayan Mitra

Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer

Background

After my medical degree, I trained in Internal Medicine and obtained an MD before moving to Radiology. I further sub-specialised in Neuroradiology and became a Consultant in Newcastle upon Tyne NHS trust in 2005. I joined the Stroke Research Group in 2015 as Hon Senior Lecture to pursue academic research.

My main areas of research interest are stroke, paediatric brain tumours and sub-arachnoid haemorrhage. I am PI of SINONIMS which is a study of imaging biomarkers in adult stroke. I am a co-investigator in TOPSAT 2 which is an international multi-centre study on poor-grade sub-arachnoid haemorrhage. I am involved in a number of national/international studies in the field of paediatric brain tumours.

I sit in the Stroke Research Group (Institute of Neurosciences) led by Prof Helen Rodgers. I am currently collaborating with, among others, Prof Andrew Blamire in Centre for In Vitro Imaging and Prof Phil White and Dr Chris Price in the Stroke Research Group.
