Biographical details

Professor Prineas graduated in medicine from the University of Sydney in 1958. Subsequent clinical appointments included residencies at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney, and in the UK at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary, the National Hospitals For Nervous Diseases (Maida Vale) and the London Hospital. He received his training in neuropathology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York, under Professor RD Terry. Following positions included a Senior Lectureship in Medicine, University of Sydney, Attending Neurologist and Professor of Neurosciences and Neuropathology , Rutgers New Jersey Medical School and the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center, East Orange , NJ, and Visiting Professor of Pathology, Albert Einstein College of Medicine (1976-1990). He joined the Department of Medicine at Sydney University as an Honorary Professor in 2000 with office and laboratory facilities in the Blackburn Building. His chief research interest is the pathology of multiple sclerosis and other diseases of myelin.
