Could there be a better example of someone making a dramatic difference than 75 year old Professor Geoffrey Raisman? He is the leader of the University College of London team who have pioneered the techniques used in the recent (October 2014) astonishing attempt to make a paralyzed man walk again. Whilst the experiment is remarkable in itself, the doctor who has driven the relentless search for this solution demonstrates many of the qualities that we find associated with excellence. 

The story began almost 50 years ago when, having qualified as a doctor, Raisman found evidence to indicate that the nervous system could repair itself. This put him in conflict with the establishment, as it went against the conventional wisdom of the time. We would say it was his relentless pursuit of excellence that kept him working on this. He claims that it was: “my thought that it’s important, it’s new and exciting and I’ve been the first one to see it.” that kept him working at finding a way to turn his theory into practice.

He is clearly a master of his own unique craft of neurology, and has assembled a crack team of professionals to support him in his endeavour, but his was the inspiration and determination that made the miracle happen. Who knows where this breakthrough will take us? Read more here: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/real-life-stories/meet-working-class-lad-leeds-who-4479771#rlabs=3
