    About me

    I graduated from the University of Western Australia and was awarded the Medicinae Studii Princeps – the Australian Medical Association Gold Medal. I am a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians and the Royal College of Physicians (London) and have worked in the Oxford University Department of Neurology and the Institute of Molecular Medicine Oxford, The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square, London UK, the Heidelberg Kopfklinic, and in the National Institutes of Health, USA. I have served as Honorary Secretary, Council Member and Coordinator of Advanced Training for the Australian and New Zealand Association of Neurologists and am an Inaugural Member of the Central Scientific Committee and Treasurer of the Pan Asian Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis. I was the former Head of the Department of Neurology and Clinical Neurophysiology at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital, and I am currently the Director of the Demyelinating Diseases Centre at the Perron Institute (formerly WANRI), Adjunct Professor of Neuroimmunology at Murdoch University, Clinical Professor of Neurology at the University of Western Australia, and Visiting Professor at Sun Yat Sen University, PR China. I have received numerous postgraduate awards and was an NHMRC CJ Martin Scholar. I established the comprehensive Western Australian clinical database of over 2,000 MS patients with comprehensive long term follow-up, have been involved in MS drug trials for many years, and I have published extensively. My current research encompasses both clinical research and fundamental research into the pathogenesis of multiple sclerosis.
