Personal profile


Doctor Fabien Delerue is the Head of the Genome Editing at Macquarie (GEM), a transgenic core which is part of the Dementia Research Centre (DRC), 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.

Research interests

Fabien’s contribution to the field of transgenesis and genome editing is internationally recognized. Fabien’s career spans over 20 years practice in assisted reproduction and generation of animal models of diseases. Current projects include:

-      Optimization of gene transfer methods for the generation of genetically modified animals.
