Suzanne Minton grew up in Texas but came to North Carolina to attend college and never left. Her endless curiosity has led to many adventures including studying in Jerusalem, conducting research on bottlenose dolphins, and wrangling her two strong willed children. She earned a doctorate in pharmacology from UNC-Chapel Hill and has a passion for helping develop safer, more effective medications, especially for pediatric patients. When not thinking about science, Suzanne likes to garden, mix craft cocktails, and spend time with friends and family. She lives in Durham with her husband, David, and son and daughter.
