Australian School of Advanced Medicine Dean’s Message

“It gives me great pleasure to work with the Deb Bailey Foundation at Macquarie University. We are new to biomedical research and our goal is to bring clinical problems to the laboratory and to produce knowledge that will benefit those suffering. Macquarie University has strengths in many areas that will benefit MND research, including neuroscience, protein chemistry and immunology.

We have an extremely dedicated neurologist with a keen interest in MND, Professor Dominic Rowe, and the outstanding facilities at Macquarie University Hospital will enable us to seamlessly integrate the best care for MND with research that, we hope will put an end to future suffering. The ability to construct a new research program is exciting and filled with promise.

We expect to make significant advances in both the diagnosis and treatment of MND over the next 10 years. The support of the Foundation, in concert with the significant contribution of the University will give our researchers an enormous kick start. I look forward to a decade of achievement.”


Professor Simon Foote,

Dean of the Australian School of Advanced Medicine Macquarie University, 2013
