Suzan Nadi received her Ph.D. in biochemistry from Indiana University in Indianapolis, where she worked on the identification of neurotransmitters in cerebellar neurons. In her postdoctoral training at the Roche Institute of Molecular Biology in Nutley, NJ, she focused her research on the neurochemical aspects of the olfactory bulb. Dr. Nadi then joined the NIH Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, where she helped set up its basic research laboratory in epilepsy. Her research there focused on the role of neuropeptide Y and somatostatin in seizures in animal models of seizures and the human brain. Before coming to CSR, Dr. Nadi held a faculty position at George Washington University, teaching neuroanatomy and advancing research on hyperbaric oxygen-induced seizures for the U.S. Navy.
