State of the Art 2019

MATTHEW ROWLAND

I am a clinical lecturer in anaesthetics and intensive care medicine and work in the Kadoorie Centre for Critical Care Research at the University of Oxford. I graduated in 2003 from Royal Free and University College London Medical School with distinction and gained FRCA and FFICM whilst completing specialist anaesthetic/ICM training in the Oxford Deanery.

In 2010, I was awarded an OHSRC/Merck Fellowship using novel MRI sequences to investigate mechanisms of early brain injury in patients with subarachnoid haemorrhage. Following this, I was awarded a Clinical Research Training Fellowship in 2011 by the Medical Research Council UK to undertake a DPhil which he completed in 2015.

My main research interest is acute brain injury in ICU patients with publications including a number of first author papers on subarachnoid haemorrhage. I am currently principle investigator on a study investigating mechanisms of early brain injury after cardiac arrest as well as supervising ongoing studies on acute traumatic brain injury and therapeutic interventions in subarachnoid haemorrhage.
