Biographical details

A/Prof Cheung did his PhD in the area of growth hormone and somatostatin, but subsequently his research and much of his professional activity has moved into the area of diabetes. He has been the President of the Australian Diabetes Society, a Council member of the Australasian Diabetes in Pregnancy Society, a Board member of Diabetes Australia, the Chairperson of the National Association of Diabetes Centres, Chairperson of the National Diabetes in Pregnancy Advisory Committee to the Commonwealth, and a member of the Diabetes Advisory Group to the Commonwealth. He is currently the Chairperson of the Medical Educational and Scientific Advisory Council to the National Diabetes Services Scheme, and Chair of the NSW Agency for Clinical Innovation In-Hospital Diabetes Management Committee.

Dr Cheung is also the Director of the Dept of Diabetes & Endocrinology at Westmead Hospital, and Director of the Centre for Diabetes & Endocrinology Research, Westmead.

Research interests

The effect of hyperglycaemia on hospitalised patients, the prevention of diabetes, and diabetes in pregnancy.
