Susanne is focusing her activities around growth of the Centre’s HND in Industrial Biotechnology course whilst enhancing the highly successful MSc and PhD degree programmes. Through these efforts, and key stakeholder engagement events such as the Annual Conference and Skills for Industry days, she is hoping to help create over 1500 jobs in Scotland by 2025 with the skills programmes offered by IBioIC and its partners.
Susanne holds a Doctorate in Xenobiotic Metabolism, she was research active in the field of biomarkers and schizophrenia and her passion for chromatographic analysis also led to research into traditional medicines and some memorable international conferences. Susanne has held a number of academic posts during which she developed MSc programmes and managed a large team which developed innovative STEM resources and delivered digital services for UK Universities and Colleges.
Susanne enjoys cycling, walking and is persevering with Latin and Ballroom dance lessons hoping one day to enjoy those too!
