Sonja Schrepfer's Biography

Sonja Schrepfer, Professor of Surgery, University of California-San Francisco

Dr. Schrepfer has been working in transplant immunology since the mid-1990s. In addition to her research background, she was trained in cardiac surgery and heart/lung transplantation. She had her first publication on the mouse cardiac model when she was still in medical school. After graduation, she was a resident in the Cardiothoracic Surgery Departments in Munich and Hamburg (Germany) before pursuing a career as a full-time scientist. She received her PhD in transplant immunology and founded the Transplant and Stem Cell Immunobiology (TSI) Lab at Stanford University in the Department of CT Surgery in 2007, focusing on pluripotent stem cells and their immunobiology for regenerative medicine. In 2009, Dr. Schrepfer was the youngest full Professor in Medicine appointed in Germany, and subsequently, was awarded the prestigious DFG-Heisenberg professorship. Her work is funded by the Leopoldina Academy of Science, Leducq Fondation, NASA, CIRM, NIH and CASIS to understand the immunobiology of pluripotent stem cells and immune activation/senescence. Dr. Schrepfer is currently Professor in the Department of Surgery at UCSF and made significant contributions to the field of regenerative medicine, improving our understanding of associated immunological barriers even in autologous recipients.
