Emma joined J A Kemp in 2021 as a trainee patent attorney and is based in the firm’s London office.
Emma studied Biological Natural Sciences at Newnham College, Cambridge, where she was awarded a Beard Scholarship and the Anne Jemima Clough award in the first year of her degree. She specialised in Virology and Immunology in her final year, and continued her study of Immunology in an MSc at Imperial College London. Her masters project used the technique of Imaging Mass Cytometry to investigate the immunological environment of the human Alzheimer’s Disease brain, and in particular the role of the resident immune cells known as microglia. During her undergraduate degree, Emma undertook various summer projects; these ranged from work experience in a precision oncology firm, to science outreach as part of Cambridge Hands on Science, where she demonstrated unique and exciting experiments in schools and at public events across the UK.
