Susanne Sattler obtained her PhD in 2009 from the University of Vienna, Austria. Her PhD project on immunological properties of endothelial cells sparked her interest in the mutual cross talk between the immune and the cardiovascular system.

Susanne Sattler joined Imperial College London in 2009 as a postdoctoral research associate in the Centre of Complement and Inflammation Research (CCIR). There she developed a keen interest in the regulatory control of immune responses as well as autoimmunity as an inevitable consequence of lacking or aberrant regulatory processes. In August 2012, Susanne joined the National Heart and Lung Institute as a member of the Cardiac Regeneration group led by Prof. Nadia Rosenthal.

Susanne now leads a BHF funded project investigating the role of the adaptive immune system after myocardial infarction and heart failure.
