Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellow.


Emily is a Fellow with particular interests in immunology and in vivo models of infection. Emily has a combined BSc and Mres in biochemistry from Imperial College London and the University of Barcelona, completed in 2004. She then did a PhD at Imperial under Professor Tracy Hussell, focusing on T cell activation and development in a range of inflammatory diseases. Following this, Emily moved to the LSHTM to carry on T cell work in the malaria model, with Kevin Couper and Eleanor Riley. From 2012 she worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the Davidson Lab at the MRC Centre for Inflammation Research at the University of Edinburgh, investigating the role of cathelicidins in defence against infectious lung disease and the modulation of adaptive immune responses. In 2017 she established her own research group, with the award of a prestigious Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowship, for her project entitled “Cathelicidin is critical for pathogenic T cell development in multiple sclerosis”, working in close collaboration with Donald Davidson.
