Biographical details

Professor Matthew Kiernan was recently appointed as the Bushell Chair of Neurology at the University of Sydney. His clinical research unit is now located at the Brain and Mind Institute. He was appointed Professor of Neurology, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital (RPAH) in 2013 and Senior Staff Specialist RPAH. He is also a Senior Scientist at Neuroscience Research Australia Professor Kiernan is the head of the Clinical Neuroscience research group comprising 20-strong team of clinicians, scientists, biomedical engineers, doctoral & postdoctoral students with focus on neurological disease. His research team's focus is clinical neurology, in particular disease pathophysiology and treatment strategies of frontotemporal dementia and motor neurone sydnromes. Currently his team is investigating the mechanisms and the possible prevention of neurodegeneration in motor neurone disease; frontotemporal dementia; chemotherapy-induced neurotoxicity; stroke; Machado-Joseph disease; spinal muscular atrophy and other inherited neuropathies. We are also involved in clinical trials investigating potential drug treatments for motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis and chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy. His team's research is intrinsically linked to the provision of clinical services, particularly the ForeFront Multidisciplinary Motor Neurone Disease & Fronto temporal Dementia Clinic and diagnostic neurophysiology clinics. Professor Kiernan is the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry (BMJ Publishing Group). Professor Kiernan is Vice President of the Australian Brain Foundation, the largest priming institution for neuroscience in Australia, responsible for distributing funding towards research and medical education for the treatment and prevention of neurological disorders.
