Prof Papadopoulos is a consultant neurosurgeon with a specialist interest in complex spinal surgery and vascular neurosurgery.
His clinical interests include general neurosurgery with sub-specialist interest in vascular and complex spinal surgery.
His research interests are aquaporin water channel proteins, especially aquaporin-4. His laboratory investigates the role of aquaporin-4 in brain and spinal cord swelling and in the neurological disease neuromyelitis optica. Prof Papadopoulos is also interested in the role of spinal cord swelling after injury and has set up the ISCoPE (Injured Spinal Cord Pressure Evaluation) clinical study aiming to develop novel techniques to manage spinal cord swelling after severe traumatic spinal cord injury.
Professor Papadopoulos was educated at the Universities of Cambridge (BA 1990, MD 1997) and Oxford (BM BCh 1993). He became a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS) in 1998 and a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in Surgical Neurology (FRCS(SN)) in 2002. Prof Papadopoulos received his Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training (CCST) in Neurosurgery in 2005.
Neurosciences Research Foundation
Prof Papadopoulos is Chairman of the Neurosciences Research Foundation, which funds patient-centred research in clinical neurosciences.
The Neurosciences Research Foundation is supported by the generous donations from patients who were treated at Atkinson Morley at St George's Hospitals.
