Professor Sabine Ernst qualified in medicine in Germany then continued her training in Los Angeles and Boston, USA, and in Switzerland.
Professor Ernst was director of a magnetic navigation laboratory in Hamburg, Germany.
In 2007, she moved to London, became a specialist in cardiology, and joined Royal Brompton and Harefield hospitals.
She is the research lead in electrophysiology at the Trust. Since 2012, she has been a Reader at Imperial College London.
Professor Ernst is one of the pioneers of remote magnetic navigation and catheter ablation without the use of x-ray. She has established these technique from its initiation to it becoming a routine clinical procedure using state-of-the-art equipment, including advanced 3D-mapping techniques. The technique of remote magnetic navigation can particularly benefit patients with congenital heart disease, complex anatomy and arrhythmias. These types of patients form a major part of Professor Ernst’s clinical work.
