Good medical morning!
This is the first time I’ve ever written a blog post, so I’m not quite sure what to expect.
I know that you probably already know my favourite doctors, so this is a quick recap of all the great medical specialists that I’m aware of in Australia.
It is often said that medical training in Australia has improved in recent years, and it certainly has.
However, it’s not always easy to pick a good doctor.
Here’s what I like about the doctors I’m familiar with in Australia:1.
Dr Andrew Prentice, Royal Melbourne Hospital (RHF)2.
Dr Jennifer Kukulcan, Royal Brisbane Hospital (QB)3.
Dr David Ayliffe, Royal Perth Hospital (PRH)4.
Dr Stephen Daley, University of Sydney (UT)5.
Dr John Whelan, St Vincent’s Hospital in Sydney (VS)6.
Dr James McInnes, Sydney Children’s Hospital (SCL)7.
Dr Robert Vickers, University College Hospital (UCH)8.
Dr Michael Gough, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital (RGH)9.
Dr Simon Fraser University, Australian Research Council (ARC)10.
Dr Paul Pyle, University Hospital of Western Australia (UWA)I’ve also been fortunate enough to be surrounded by doctors who have given me the best advice possible, from the very best of the best.
I’m going to highlight some of the top medical experts in Australia who are known for their excellence, and how they are able to communicate with each other on a regular basis.
I hope this helps you pick the doctor that you need.1.
Dr Paul Pylott: This is Dr Pylotts first major role at RMH.
He has already done a lot of research on Alzheimers, and has a special interest in this particular disease.
Dr Pylots work has been particularly focused on understanding the genetic basis of this disease, and why some people develop the disease and others do not.
He’s also a leading researcher in the field of the genetic causes of Alzheimer’s, as well as understanding the mechanisms involved in this disease.
Dr Pyle has also conducted numerous scientific studies in this area, and is a professor of genetics at RM and director of the Australian Centre for Research in Alzheims Disease (ACRD) at RM.
He is also the former president of the Australasian Society of Genetic Medicine (ASGM) and has lectured widely on genetic causes and genetic therapies.
Dr David Ayer: Ayer is an Australian-Australian Professor of Molecular Genetics and Pathology at RM who has worked at the university for 20 years.
Ayers research into the genetic pathways involved in Alzhir-related disease has been extremely fruitful.
He developed the most comprehensive study of Alzhiri gene pathways to date, which was published in the Journal of Molecular Psychiatry in 2011.
This work has shown that a high level of genetic variation in a single gene can influence the disease, as seen in a large number of cases of Alzheimer’s disease.3.
Dr James McIndoe: McIndoe is a medical scientist and the Director of the Centre for Genetic Medicine at the Royal Perth and Alfred Hospital, where he has also led the research in this field.
McInoe has worked extensively in the area of Alzheart disease, where she developed the first genome-wide study of this disorder, and developed a number of novel tools and techniques to examine gene expression in Alz-like conditions.
He also developed a new genetic test for this condition, which is now used in Australia, as part of a trial of new drugs that target the enzyme acetylcholinesterase (AChE).
McIndoes research on AChE and its effect on Alzhira has been especially influential in developing drugs that prevent AChEs development.4.
Dr John Welford: Welford is a former president and CEO of the ACRD and a former member of the ASCM’s Genetics Advisory Council.
He currently leads the ACR Research Institute, which has published more than 1000 papers and reviews of scientific literature on genetic and gene regulation in Alzheimer disease.
His work in this arena has been influential in the development of a number novel drugs for this disease (and others).5.
Dr Simon Fraser: Fraser is the founder of the Fraser Institute, an independent think tank which is a hub of research and education in the areas of Alzheri disease, Alzheimer’s research, and biophysics.
Fraser has published several books on the topic of Alzhardier disease, including a book on the genetic foundations of Alzheiser disease, entitled, Genetic Basis of Alzherers Disease: From Basic Genetics to Targeted Therapy.6.
Dr Stephen Daly: Daly is a Professor in the Department of Molecular Path
