Dr Ione Woollacott is a Neurology doctor currently doing a PhD at the UCL Institute of Neurology. She did an intercalated BSc in Neuroscience during her medical degree at the University of Bristol, and summer projects in several research laboratories, as she discovered that she loved doing research as well as clinical medicine. She then did her junior doctor training on an Academic Foundation Training Programme at King’s College London and an Academic Clinical Fellowship in Neurology at UCL. She realised that she wanted to be a clinical academic in Cognitive Neurology, so has taken three years out from her Neurology registrar training to do a PhD on dementia. She is also passionate about teaching medical students, and science public engagement, and has had a variety of teaching and public engagement roles during her career. Ione believes that finding a good mentor, as early as possible, really helps a person to achieve their full potential. She wants to encourage medical and science students to talk about their dreams for their future, to actively plan ahead, and to seize good opportunities whenever they arise.
