Professor Chris Kennard retired at the end of September 2016

Christopher Kennard FMedSci, Professor of Clinical Neurology, Head of the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences and Senior Nicholas Kurti Fellow of Brasenose College, retired after 36 years both as a consultant neurologist at the Royal London, Charing Cross and the John Radcliffe Hospitals, and holding senior academic positions at Imperial College London and the University of Oxford.

In over 200 scientific papers and 60 book chapters he has explored many different aspects of visual and oculomotor function and cognition, particularly in patients with neurodegenerative diseases and stroke.

On 22 September his life's work to date was celebrated with a Festschrift in Oxford. Colleagues past and present delivered talks throughout the day at the Department of Experimental Psychology, before heading to Keble College for a celebratory dinner.
