Dr Gavin Winston is a neurologist based at the Epilepsy Society MRI Unit, Chalfont St Peter and affiliated with the Department of Clinical and Experimental Epilepsy, UCL Institute of Neurology, Queen Square, London. He trained in Nottingham, Queen Square and the Royal Free Hospital.

His research concentrates on patients with refractory epilepsy undergoing neurosurgical treatment, predominantly anterior temporal lobe resection. He evaluates the effects of epilepsy and surgery on cognitive functions using diffusion tensor imaging and has recently shown that real-time image-guided surgery in an intraoperative MRI suite reduces the risk of visual field deficits.

He received the Sir Peter Mansfield Prize for innovative technical developments in the field of magnetic resonance in medicine and biology from the British Chapter of the ISMRM in 2011 and his work featured in the BBC television programme "How Science Changed Our World" describing the top ten scientific breakthroughs in the past 50 years. He also serves as a peer-reviewer for numerous international journals.
