Dr. Susan Leemburg is a neuroscientist from the Netherlands who lives in Switzerland. After a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Zurich, she is currently looking for a new position in academic research.
Susan is a volunteer with Science for Progress, and she has her own project Highlighter to showcase women in STEM in Switzerland. She also is passionate about informing people about animal experiments, and about do-it-yourself techniques in science research.
During her curation, Susan will be tweeting from San Diego, where she is visiting “Neuroscience”, the annual conference of the “Society for Neuroscience” (SfN) – the biggest neuroscience conference in the world, with over 30 000 attendees. She will tell us which topics got her excited at the conference. Other topics will be women in science, and animal experiments. And finally she wants to talk about DIY science/citizen science and how it’s not only just fun, but can be used to make the world better as well.
