Suzanne Dickson began her career as a PhD student of Gareth Leng at the Babraham Institute in Cambridge, where she made the discovery that ghrelin mimetics act in the brain. She now runs a lab focused on the neurobiology of appetite and its regulation by orexigenic signals. Currently her lab are implementing chemogenetic and viral vector mapping approaches, exploring “who does what” in the appetite neurocircuitry. The Neuroendocrinology Community are my extended family and I love to support it in any way I can. As Programme Organizing Committee Chair of the International Conference for Neuroendocrinology 2022 (ICN2022), I am excited by the programme and all the activities welcoming the international neuroendocrine community, with special events for Early Career Scientists. I’m also excited by the new opportunities arising from the new branch of our journal – Translational and Clinical Neuroendocrinology – for which I am Deputy Editor-in-Chief. I’m always free for a chat and you are welcome to visit my lab in the future.
