Emma studied biochemistry at Imperial College London then stayed on for a Masters and PhD on her favourite topic, immunology. After almost a decade there, she braved the move out of London (a whole 12 miles south) and joined The Institute of Cancer Research to study multiple myeloma, a white blood cell cancer. She left the lab for the final time in 2010 and, after a couple of years at Breakthrough Breast Cancer, joined the Science Communications team at Cancer Research UK.
