ABOUT – Expertise

Our expertise


Since the 1980s, Associate Professor Leslie Sheffield has been at the forefront of research into pharmacogenomics. He was amongst the first to see the potential to improve treatment outcomes by taking into account the way that a person metabolises drugs.


After many years of research, in 2007 he started myDNA and began offering genetic testing with clinical interpretation to personalise how people take medication.

Today our team combines pharmacologists with molecular and clinical geneticists. They work together to provide expert genetic interpretation and to explain its relevance to the individual and their referring doctor.
