Dr Susie Rebelo Hopkins is Senior Teaching Fellow within Medicine at the University of Southampton.

Dr Susie Rebelo Hopkins obtained her BSc in Genetics from Aberystwyth University in 2001, followed by an MSc in Biomedical Sciences from Nottingham Trent University in 2003 and a PhD in Immunology from the University of Nottingham in 2006.

She then undertook three years of post-doctoral research at the University of Nottingham in the Inflammation and Clinical Immunology Research Group (2006-2009). Her research investigated the specific molecular mechanisms linking the genetic defect (autosomal dominant mutations in TNFR1) to the autoinflammatory syndrome observed in patients suffering from tumour necrosis factor receptor associated periodic syndrome (TRAPS). This research established that the phenotype and clinical differences between different TRAPS associated mutants of TNFR1 result from different conformations of the TNFR1 ectodomain and identified a set of novel inflammatory markers associated with TRAPS. Her current research interests involve the molecular dynamics of the cellular signalling pathways that regulate immune responses in autoinflammatory diseases.

In 2010 she was appointed as an immunology lecturer in biomedical sciences at Nescot, a Further and Higher Education College. She was involved in course development and teaching in the Biomedical Science undergraduate programme and in the MSc in Perfusion postgraduate programme as well as supervising student research projects.

She joined the University of Southampton as a Senior Teaching Fellow in Medical Education on the BM6 programme in 2012. She is interested in the use of technology and development of e-learning tools to improve student experience and enhance student learning as well as developing open educational resources for biomedical science education.
