Trainees Committee representative – West Midlands
In 2022 Dr Duncan Street was elected to represent the West Midlands, having worked in the region since 2017.
He is a neurology registrar and has recently returned to full-time clinical training following an out-of-programme period in which he completed a PhD in clinical neurosciences at the University of Cambridge. His research focused on longitudinal modelling in progressive supranuclear palsy, as a foundation for better powered and more inclusive clinical trials utilising clinical, cognitive and neuroimaging biomarkers from multicentre cohorts. Dr Street also represents neurology trainees at the West Midlands Specialty Training Committee and is a personal academic tutor for the MBChB programme at the University of Birmingham.
Dr Street has a strong interest in improving trainee involvement in research and is a member of the NIHR Clinical Research Network Neurodegeneration National Specialty Group and the European Academy of Neurology Scientific Panel on amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and frontotemporal dementia. He looks forward to bringing skills and experience from these positions to his new role on the Trainees Committee panel.
