Zealand and Australia. Specifically Margie worked with families affected by early-
onset Alzheimer’s disease and more recently in the diagnostic screening for
heritable breast and breast/ovarian cancer.
Working with an American based company Transgenomics Margie established high
throughout genetic analysis using WAVE Technology. This enabled breast cancer
screening to be used in diagnostic laboratories in Australia, New Zealand and
Margie has published in the areas of both cancer and neurogenetics and she has
recently contributed to the publication Dementia.
Recently Margie became the co-founder of a Nutritional Genomics company called
SMART DNA. This company has established affordable, Predictive and
Preventative Nutrition based genetic testing for practitioners and their clients. This
Nutritional profiling is personalised and covers a number of health areas including
cholesterol profiling, Phase I and Phase II detox and weight management.
