Dr Arjune Sen
Consultant Neurologist (Oxford)

I am Consultant Neurologist at the John Radcliffe Hospital and Associate Professor at University of Oxford. My interest in epilepsy began in the summer of my first year at Medical School during which I worked with Professor Simon Shorvon and, essentially, that initiated all that has followed. Having finished clinical school and basic medical training in Birmingham, Oxford and London, I completed a PhD at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery with full personal funding from the Medical Research Council and The Guarnators of Brain. The thesis examined the molecular basis of neuronal loss in focal epilepsy and garnered several publications and prizes. After Registrar training in London, I then travelled to Sydney on an Epilepsy Fellowship before starting in Oxford in 2012 I am Head of the Oxford Epilepsy Research Group, a diverse collective that works in most areas of epileptology. My personal interests include autoimmune epilepsy, clinical epileptology and epilepsy genetics. I also work on the intersection between epilepsy and dementia and am increasingly involved in the care of people with epilepsy in low to middle income countries. I led Oxford to be part of EpiCARE, the European Reference Network for Rare and Complex Epilepsies and was elected to Council of the ILAE British Chapter in 2018. I am delighted to have been appointed to the Medical Advisory Board of Ring Chromosome 20 and very much look forward to helping progress management in this and other rare genetic epilepsies.
