Which fuels are best for the injured brain? Ibrahim is a consultant adult and paediatric neurosurgeon who was awarded a World Federation of Neurosurgical Societies Young Neurosurgeon of the Year award in 2017. His research, supported by the MRC, aims to explore several aspects of energy metabolism in the normal and injured human brain.
