About Leann Tilley

Leann Tilley is Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the Bio21 Institute. Leann was awarded the Georgina Sweet Australian Laureate Fellowship from the Australian Research Council, to measure and model malaria parasites. She is Past-President of the Australian Society for Biochemistry & Molecular Biology. As part of the Laureate program, Leann’s laboratory applied new imaging modalities to studies of malaria parasites, including Super-Resolution Optical Microscopy, Electron Tomography and cryoEM. Leann believes that answering the major medical and biotechnology questions of the 21st century will require convergence of the life and physical sciences, with particular reliance on advanced imaging techniques. She believes that answering important questions requires teams of passionate gender and culturally diverse people who provide different ideas, perspectives and backgrounds - building a collective intelligence.
