Dr Lesley Cheng

Lesley's ground breaking research is a milestone for not only degenerative diseases but health conditions of all types. It's a step towards personalised medicine. Get a glimpse of the future of medicine.

Lesley’s work at on Molecular Science involves developing a blood test for the early detection of brain conditions such as Alzheimer’s Disease. She uses basic science, automation, Next-Generation technologies and big data to profile hidden genetic material called "exosomes". Research applications are not limited to disease diagnosis and may be used to understand healthy ageing, develop new therapies and improve health.
