Dr Fabien Delerue, Head of the Genome Editing at Macquarie (GEM), Senior Lecturer, Macquarie University.
Fabien is the Head of the Genome Editing at Macquarie (GEM), a transgenic core of the Dementia Research Centre (DRC). The DRC is a leading discovery-based research centre established in 2018 at Macquarie University. Fabien graduated from the University of Bordeaux in France and received his PhD from the University of Sydney. Fabien gained his first research experience in the preclinical CNS Centre of Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd (Basel, Switzerland) where he became an expert in in vivo activities (i.e. animal models of diseases). In 2013, Fabien moved to the University of New South Wales, where he became Lecturer and managed the Transgenic Animal Unit. In 2018, he became Senior Lecturer and joined Macquarie University to head the GEM transgenic facility. His research focuses on developing new genome editing and gene transfer techniques particularly applicable to dementia. In parallel, Fabien developed a research program on rare genetic disorders
