Director of Research and Uganda Operations

Anthony Fuller, MD, MScGH, is the Director of Research and Uganda Operations for the Division of Global Neurosurgery and Neurology (DGNN). He was part of the team that helped found DGNN in 2014 as the first division in the United States dedicated solely to global neurosurgery and neurology.

Dr. Fuller's research efforts focus on health system strengthening and development in neurosurgery and neurology in East Africa. Publications from this work cover expanding neurosurgery access, outcome assessments from international partnerships and interventions, and epidemiology research on the burden of surgical diseases in low- and middle-income countries. 

Recently Dr. Fuller's research has included exploring epilepsy in Uganda, where the focus is on health system strengthening using a multi-faceted research approach using epidemiology, health facility based, and community belief research for intervention and advocacy development.

Dr. Fuller's research efforts are in partnership with Makerere University School of Public Health, Makerere University College of Health Sciences, Ugandan government bodies (Ministry of Health) and other partners in Uganda including neurosurgeons, neurologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, and health care workers.
