Personal profile


Professor Rowe is the Foundation Professor of Neurology in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences at Macquarie University; Chairman of Macquarie Neurology, and Consultant Neurologist at Macquarie University Hospital.

For ten years he was Chairman of the MND Research Institute of Australia, taking this funding body from minor influence to the major source of funding for MND research in Australia. He is the Principal Investigator on the Parkinson’s Progression Marker Initiative, re-sponsible for the only Australian site in this ground breaking collabo-rative research in PD. Together with Professor Kiernan and others, he founded the Australian Motor Neurone Disease Registry. For the last nine years he has been instrumental in the set up and im-plementation of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences at Macquarie University.

Professor Rowe was awarded a Member of the Order of Australia in the 2012 Queen’s Birthday Honour List for services to Medicine and Neurology, particularly Motor Neurone Disease and Parkinson’s.

Professor Rowe is a member of the Australian and New Zealand Associ-ation of Neurologists; International Movement Disorder Society and a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians.
He is a Chairman of Neurology at Macquarie University Hospital and the founder of Macquarie Neurolo-gy; an adult neurology practice that performs more than 10,000 patient episodes per year. Macquarie Neu-rology manages the care of more than 200 patients with MND, 600 patients with Parkinson’s and 100 patients with Multiple Sclerosis.
