Ms Susan Alexander graduated from Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School in 1996. Following basic surgical training in London, Susan attended the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology, Imperial College of London, and completed a PhD in Molecular Biology. Her research focused on cartilage proteins and their response to mechanical injury.
