Principal Research Fellow, National Dementia Diagnostics Laboratory (NDDL), The Florey, The University of Melbourne, Australia

A/Prof Qiao-Xin Li has a long standing record of research, especially in biomarker testing for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and related disorders, and is nationally and internationally recognised, with >150 publications. This has advanced the understanding of AD and other neurodegenerative diseases and neuropsychiatric disorders through the study of molecular biomarkers in patient samples and animal models. This is now translating into clinical practice through the development of biomarker-based diagnostic and precision medicine theragnostic tests for early dementia and psychosis.

Together with Directors Professor Colin Masters and Professor Steven Collins, we have established the NATA-accredited National Dementia Diagnostics Laboratory (NDDL) to support clinical trials, routine practice, and commercial collaborations.
