The newlywed chemists who found love in the lab working side by side to fight cancer


Chemical attraction has proved to be more than just a myth for these two loved-up Newcastle scientists.

Dr Suzannah Harnor, 35, and Dr Stephen Hobson, 35 have celebrated tying the knot after meeting in science labs as undergraduates 14 years ago.

They both went on to complete PhDs at the University of Glasgow, and are now helping in the fight against cancer side by side as Research Associates at Newcastle University.

Now they are using their chemistry together to call on people across Newcastle to back today’s World Cancer Day for Cancer Research UK.

Suzannah and Stephen met in 2003 as undergraduates whilst studying Biological Chemistry at the University of Dundee, and got married at Jesmond Dene House in December.

Suzannah continues to be a Research Associate at the Northern Institute for Cancer Research, working as part of the Cancer Research UK Drug Discovery Programme identifying new molecules for cancer targets in areas of unmet medical need.
