Dr Suzanne Jean Reid
PhD (Pharmacology) 2004
Professional Teaching Fellow (2017- current), School of Biological Sciences, University of Auckland
Research Fellow (2005- 2016), School of Biological Sciences, University of Auckland
Research | Current
Prior to my current Teaching Fellow role, my postdoctoral research focused on Alzheimers and Huntingtons disease, using genetics, simple cell culture models, C. elegans, transgenic sheep and human patient tissue and DNA to advance our knowledge of the molecular mechanisms behind these diseases.
I am no longer able to supervise research students, but please get in touch if you are interested in postgraduate study within Biology; I can provide advice as a SBS graduate advisor.
Teaching | Current
Course co-ordinator and lecturer BIOSCI 107 (Biology for Biomedicine) and BIOSCI 95F (TFC Biology) since 2017
Teach into MAORIHTH 22H (CertHealth Biology) and BIOSCI 202 (Genetics).
Previously taught into MEDSCI 717 (Advanced Neuroscience) and BIOSCI 759 (Molecular Cell Biology and Biomedicine).
SBS Postgraduate sub-doctoral advisor.
Get in touch if you are interested knowing more about postgraduate study in Biology (Honours and PgDip/Masters level). You are welcome to call by my office to chat, or contact me via email.
