Dr Karen Suetterlin

Karen Suetterlin joined the AGE Research Group after starting as a Clinical Neurophysiology Registrar at the RVI (Royal Victoria Infirmary) in March 2020.

She is new to the region having completed an MRC Clinical Research Training Fellowship ‘Progressive Muscular Weakness in Periodic Paralysis and Normal Aging’ under the supervision of Professor Mike Hanna at the Institute of Neurology, UCL. Karen is really enjoying her move to the North East and is very excited about working with and learning from the vast expertise of the AGE Research Group. During her time in the North East, Karen hopes to translate some of the research findings from her PhD for the benefit of people with periodic paralysis and sarcopenia.
