Dr Hambleton AMA President commented “Professor Leslie is a leader in every sense of the word,”
 “Not only is she recognised internationally for the contribution she has made to understanding and improving the use of anaesthetics, she is immediate past president of the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists, is immediate past Chair of the Committee of Presidents of Medical Colleges, has extensive research interests and is directly engaged in teaching the next generation of anaesthetists.”

Professor Leslie has drawn international attention for her investigations into patient awareness during anaesthesia, and research she has been involved in has helped refine the administration of anaesthetics, including through the use of brain monitoring.
