Before commencing her training with J A Kemp, Emily's PhD focused on human papillomavirus, which causes cervical cancer. Her work crossed the fields of cancer biology, innate immunology and virology and investigated how the virus evades innate immune detection. She now works on patent matters with a range of clients, particularly in relation to molecular biology and immunology including the treatment of allergy.
Emily is in particular active in the fields of vaccines, induced pluripotent stem cells, gene search vectors and diagnostics and has experience in filing and prosecuting applications in Europe and around the world, including handling the strategy for prosecuting large patent families across many countries.
