Susan E. Leeman
This chapter presents an autobiography of Susan E. Leeman. Leeman's work research has focused on the two peptides, substance P and neurotensin, which were isolated and chemically defined in her laboratory subsequent to her detection of a sialogogic and a vasoactive substance in hypothalamic extracts. The determination of their amino acid sequences and the synthesis of these peptides have opened up fruitful fields of research for many investigators. Her early years, career, and achievements are discussed.
