Melanie Cheung – Neurobiologist
‘Science is about being a tutu!’
What I do
I’m a neurobiologist so I study the brain.
I’m from Matata and I grew up in Edgecumbe. I studied for a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences, Master of Science in Biochemistry and a Doctorate (PhD) in Pharmacology at the University of Auckland.

I really admire …
The many indigenous specialists I continually meet in my field.
