Suzanne Ryan is a Scientific Review Officer in CSR’s Population Sciences and Epidemiology Integrated Review Group.

She earned her Ph.D. in sociology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, with a focus on family demography. Before coming to NIH, Dr. Ryan was a senior research scientist at Child Trends, a nonprofit research organization in Washington, DC that provides science-based information to improve the lives of children and families. Her research at Child Trends focused largely on adolescent and young adult reproductive health outcomes. She directed projects examining contraceptive use and consistency, sexually transmitted infections, and unintended childbearing among teens and young adults, including a qualitative research study aimed at generating strategies for preventing unplanned pregnancies among community college students. She also led research studies on non-marital childbearing, cohabitation and union formation, family structure change and child well-being, and male fertility.
