Dr Frank Proudlock, Ophthalmology, Department of Neuroscience, Psychology & Behaviour, University of Leicester

Dr Frank ProudlockI became interested in the eyes and brain after studying Neuroscience (BSc) at the University of Glasgow from 1989 – 1992. This was followed by studies in Bioengineering (MSc) at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow in 1993 where I became interested in the interface between engineering and neuroscience. Between 1995 and 2000 I researched into the sensory control of movement in the hand following peripheral nerve injury which led to my PhD being awarded by the University of Leicester in 2000. Since 2000 I have been researching into the visual control of eye movements in the Ophthalmology group in the University of Leicester. My technical knowledge has complemented the clinical expertise of Professor Irene Gottlob to help establish Leicester as an international centre for research and treatment into nystagmus.

Since 2014 I have been a senior lecturer in the ophthalmology group where I have led, amongst other things, investigations into visual system deficits in albinism ,the impact of reading in nystagmus and development of new treatments in visual system disease. I also have an active teaching role where I contribute to the degree courses in biological sciences and medicine. I also supervise a number of postgraduate research students, including PhD, MD and intercalated BSc students.
