Leading Women of Scotland


Dr Susie Mitchell

Dr Susie Mitchell Programme Director Glasgow City of Science Cancer Research Specialist and Science Advocate. Susie graduated with a BSc Hons in Cell and Molecular Biology and came to Glasgow 20 years ago to complete a PhD in cancer research at the Beatson Institute. In her final year she won the Institute’s John Paul Award for Research Excellence for her work on the Evi-1 proto-oncogene. She spent 5 years managing R&D within the NHS in Glasgow and was a public health policymaker at Glasgow City Council. While there, she co-authored a measure aimed at promoting health, equality and human rights in public policy-making; it was published by WHO and rolled out within the NHS in Scotland. Susie then managed equality and inclusion for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. Her current focus at Glasgow City of Science is to drive economic growth and social well-being through collaborative science and innovation programmes. She is also passionate about seeing more women establishing and retaining careers in STEAM (science, technology, art and design, engineering, maths). She presented the Scots that Changed the World series for the BBC World Service and is a semi-professional session vocalist and songwriter. 12
