Luisa Susanna Haertel
Luisa is a graduate-entry medical student who deeply cares about translating science from bench to bedside and helping to meaningfully improve outcomes for patients, particularly in diseases with a dire need for new therapeutic options. Before embarking on her journey in biomedicine, Luisa researched the impact of biomedical discoveries on hospital architecture and patient wellbeing. She holds a BA and MA from the University of Cambridge in History of Art & Architecture, with a focus on the history of science and medicine.
Prior to joining TVM in June 2023, Luisa supported the early-stage VC teams at YZR Capital in Munich and Mountain Partners in Zurich, working on a wide range of technologies including diagnostics, AI/ML-based medtech and digital health companies.
As an Analyst, she enjoys supporting the executive team with deal-flow screening, research and due diligence to make investments that improve patients’ lives.
In her spare time, Luisa loves to spend as much time as possible outdoors, running, exploring or skiing. She is also a freelance landscape and event photographer and writer.
