Susan Leung graduated from the University of Bristol, England, with a B.Sc. Degree in Pharmacology, and obtained a Ph.D. Degree in Pharmacology at the University of Hong Kong. Upon graduation, she was awarded the Croucher Foundation Fellowship for a postdoctoral training at Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics at the University of British Columbia, Canada. She then returned to the University of Hong Kong for further postdoctoral training at the Department of Pharmacology. She was Research Assistant Professor at the University of Hong Kong from 2005-2008 and has been Assistant Professor at Department of Pharmacology and Pharmacy since 2008.
Her research has mainly focused on the study of vascular reactivity under physiological and pathological conditions, and under the influence of different pharmacological agents.
She is one of the founding members of the Asian Society for Vascular Biology. Currently, she is one of Executive Committee members of Hong Kong Pharmacology Society and one of the Council members of the Institute of Cardiovascular Science and Medicine, of which she has served as Honorary Treasurer for three years (2010-2013).
