Research Summary

Dr Tur’s current research is based on the study of the role of brain structural and functional connectivity in multiple sclerosis, at the Queen Square MS Centre, Department of Neuroinflammation, UCL Institute of Neurology. In particular, she is interested in the evolution of brain cortical networks using cortical thickness over time in patients with a first attack of MS and in primary progressive MS. Her connectivity studies also involve brain multi-shell diffusion MRI and functional MRI. Additionally, she is also actively involved as a medical statistician in several research studies carried out at the Queen Square MS Centre and other departments of the UCL Institute of Neurology. She has more than 40 peer-reviewed publications in international journals and is a Member of the Editorial Board of Multiple Sclerosis Journal. She is currently supervising one MSc student at UCL Institute of Neurology (MSc Clinical Neurology).
