    Dr Asma Soltani MBBS, PhD, MRCPCH

    University Position
    Clinical Fellow


    My main drive is to increase the level of care for patients with neurological disorders and disabilities. As a clinician scientist with expertise in neurodevelopmental disorders my goal is to find new therapies to improve patient outcomes. My work so far has focused on neurodevelopmental disorders, such as Rett syndrome. I am currently holding a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship award jointly funded by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health and Newlife Charity (, to conduct my research, which is based at the Neuronal Oscillations Laboratory (Physiology Department, Cambridge University) with Prof Ole Paulsen, Chair of Physiology and Laboratory lead.
