Kherie Rowe, PhD

Kherie Rowe Ph.D.

Assistant Professor of Immunology and Microbiology

Dr. Rowe earned the Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill, in Barbados.

In 2002, she was awarded a full Chevening Scholarship to pursue a Masters of Science degree in Molecular Medical Microbiology at the University of Nottingham in England.

In 2003, she was then afforded the opportunity to complete the PhD degree in the same discipline at the University. 

Her research focused on Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) expression during meningococcal disease.  Since her return to Barbados, she has worked as a lecturer in Biology and Genetics at the UWI (Cave Hill) in Barbados.

Although the focus of her most recent research has been on the pathogenesis of disease in plants, her ultimate mandate is still on the progression of disease in man. 

Dr. Rowe is passionate about teaching future physicians the importance of disease identification so that students may properly identify pathological processes and develop the most informed treatment plan.
