Luke Ottewell is currently a 4th year medical student at the University of Bristol. His interest in neurosurgery sparked when he was 17, when he obtained a scholarship to conduct research at the renowned Barcelona Centre for Regenerative Medicine, where he worked with Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells. It wasn’t until late 2nd year of medical school, however, that he realised that he wanted to pursue a career in neurosurgery after falling in love with neuroanatomy. He has set up multiple teaching sessions for fellow students as well as representing the southwest in national neurosurgery interest groups. He had undergone projects in traumatic brain injury and pituitary surgery so far and hopes to widen his experience further before the end of medical school.
