Dr Lynne U. Sneddon

Dr Lynne Sneddon is an academic at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden and her research aims to drive the agenda for improving the welfare of fishes. Lynne obtained a Ph.D on animal behaviour, physiology and neurobiology from the University of Glasgow and subsequently held a postdoctoral position at the Roslin Institute where she was the first to characterise nociceptors (pain receptors) in a fish. Since then, Lynne has led her own laboratory and has demonstrated the capacity for pain in fishes which has led to changes in their treatment to safeguard fish welfare.
