Dr Duncan Wilson


Medical Doctor

Canterbury District Health Board, Christchurch

I am undertaking medical training with a view to becoming a vascular neurologist. I undertook my undergraduate training at the University of Otago in 2005. I worked in Auckland from 2006 to 2009 before moving to London. I gained my MRCP in 2011 and have worked in Neurology since. In 2013 I undertook my PhD at University College London, completing this in 2018. My thesis explored the clinical relevance of small vessel disease neuroimaging biomarkers in patients with stroke.

I am interested in all types of bleeding in the brain. My research is clinically orientated with a focus on neuroimaging biomarkers and risk prediction scores. Besides bleeding in the brain, I am also interested in the crossover between vascular and neurodegeneration in cognitive impairment and dementia.
