Dr Suzy Buckley profile picture
  • Associate Professor
  • Reproductive Health
  • UCL EGA Institute for Womens Health
  • Faculty of Pop Health Sciences

Dr Buckley joined UCL in 2006, became a Lecturer in 2013 and an Associate Professor in 2021. She has a background in gene therapy and previously worked on therapies for fetal and neonatal inherited disorders using pre-clinical models. Dr Buckley designed and directed a new MSc Women’s Health in 2018 and discovered that there were several fields of study involving the life-course of women’s health that were not addressed within the Institute. With this unique insight, she was able to use her expertise in equality and inclusion to address some of these gaps and is now interested in investigating the impact and influence of societal inequalities on alternative families in the field of assisted reproduction.


Dr Buckley is passionate about equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) and was co-lead of the IfWH EDI team from 2017-2020. She was instrumental in the Institute’s successful gold Athena SWAN award application in April 2017, and its gold renewal in November 2020. She is currently Vice Dean Equality, Diversity and Inclusion for the Faculty of Population Health Sciences.
