An Australian has been elected president of the World Federation of Neurology (WFN) during the 23rd World Congress of Neurology held recently in Kyoto, Japan.

West Australian Professor William (Bill) Carroll will assume the office of president from 1 January 2018.

Professor Carroll, a neurologist at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital and multiple sclerosis (MS) clinician and researcher at the Perron Institute for Neurological and Translational Science (Perron Institute), has been recognised for decades as a leader in the field of MS treatment and research.

Professor Carroll said that he was “deeply honoured by his nomination and appointment and his intention is to create a collaborative approach to achieve the goals of the WFN”.

For the next four years, Professor Carroll has a strong vision for the WFN, particularly in the areas of education, equality in neurological care and encouraging the younger generation of neurologists.
