Lessons from Neurology for People of Faith | Alasdair Coles

Drawing on his clinical work, academic research, and pastoral ministry, Revd Prof Alasdair Coles explores spirituality, faith experience, and practice.

Alasdair Coles is a professor of neurology at Cambridge University. He has wrestled with these questions as a scientist, a Christian, and as a pastor over many years. His primary research interests are in multiple sclerosis and the spirituality of people with neurological diseases. Beyond his research, Alasdair currently practices as a consultant neurologist at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge and, unusually for a practicing doctor, is also an ordained minister in the Church of England, working as a chaplain to the hospital staff.
