KESWICK, VA, November 17, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Marquis Who's Who, the world's premier publisher of biographical profiles, is proud to honor William J. Rowe, MD, FBIS, FACN, with inclusion in Who's Who in the World. An accomplished listee, Dr. Rowe celebrates many years' experience in his professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes he has accrued in his field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
After accruing more than 30 years of clinical practice and groundbreaking work in defining and describing spaceflight syndromes, Dr. Rowe retired from the field. A graduate of the University of Cincinnati, he attained a Bachelor of Science and was bestowed with a Doctor of Medicine in 1954. Uninterested in surgery, Dr. Rowe pursued specialty training in internal medicine after his graduation. He served his country as a flight surgeon in the United States Air Force from 1955 until 1957, whereupon he was honorably discharged at the rank of a captain.
From 1962 until 1993, Dr. Rowe served as a clinical assistant professor of medicine at the University of Toledo College of Medicine and Life Sciences, during which time he excelled as the chairperson of the department of medicine at St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center between 1979 and 1983, and the chief of the advisory committee for cardiac rehabilitation for the Northwest Ohio Heart Association. He has contributed to numerous journal articles, scientific papers and international symposia throughout his career. Dr. Rowe is best known for his 1992 study, "Extraordinary Unremitting Endurance Exercise and Permanent Injury to the Normal Heart," which encapsulated his findings on the lasting cardiac effects of elevated adrenaline levels, magnesium imbalances and lunar dust, as well as other particulate inhalation occurring during space flight.
Dr. Rowe's work helped codify two space flight syndromes — Apollo 15 Space Syndrome and Neil Armstrong Syndrome — based on interpretations of data taken from American astronauts returning from early space missions. He has continued to publish into the 2000s, and his research has appeared in the Lancet, Acta Astronautica, Circulation and others. Dr. Rowe is a former delegate to China for People to People International's Citizen Ambassador Program, and in retirement remains passionate about traveling and cultural exchange. Dr. Rowe is a fellow of the British Interplanetary Society, has held leadership roles in the American College of Nutrition, and is professionally affiliated with the American Medical Association, the National Space Society and the International Society for the Development of Research on Magnesium.
