Research Fellow

Dr Angus Prosser is a Research Fellow at the School of Health Sciences and part of the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) Wessex, Ageing and Dementia theme. His research interests include the use of neuroimaging and biomarkers to improve care for individuals living with dementia and neurodegenerative disease.

Translational research that moves novel ideas and techniques into clinical practice is essential to drive forward patient care

Angus joined the School of Health Sciences in December 2018 after completing his PhD at the University of Southampton Faculty of Medicine. His current work focuses on the development and optimisation of brain imaging and biomarkers to improve dementia diagnosis and prediction of future decline for the individual. He is passionate about producing translational research that can lead to improvements in clinical outcomes.

He is Principal Investigator for the Brain Imaging in Dementia study (BRAIID), a large-scale observational study that aims to optimise image reporting in dementia with over 800 participants. He is also coinvestigator on a number of other research projects, including the MINDS study, which aims to improve and assess remote methods of data collection for individuals with cognitive impairment, and the BRAIN study, which looks to assess inflammation as a biomarker in neurodegeneration.

Angus’ PhD research presented a series of translational studies that focussed on the detection of brain imaging patterns to improve dementia diagnosis, prognosis and care management. In addition to his PhD, Angus has previously obtained an MSc in Neuroscience specialising in functional neuroimaging and tractography at King’s College London, and a BSc in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Southampton. He also has extensive experience of health research in the NHS, working in Research and Development and as part of multiple research teams on both neurodegeneration and other conditions.
