David Menon’s research interests include neurocritical care, secondary brain injury, neuroinflammation, and metabolic imaging of acute brain injury. He has also published on the physiology of coma and the vegetative state, and on mechanisms of anaesthetic action in the brain. In recent years he has represented the UK intensive care community in discussions regarding the impact of evolving legislative changes on research in critical care and emergency medicine.
