Professor Suzanne Nielsen (BPharmSc[Hons] PhD MPS) is the Deputy Director of the Monash Addiction Research Centre in Melbourne.

She has published over 200 peer-reviewed publications and given over 80 invited conference presentations. Her research has led to a greater understanding of how to identify and respond to prescription, over-the-counter and illicit drug-related harm.  She has informed legislative change in Australia to reduce pharmaceutical drug harm (e.g. rescheduling of codeine and alprazolam), expanded overdose prevention with naloxone in primary care settings, and informed clinical guidelines on the use of opioid agonist treatment for prescribed opioids dependence.
