Len Stephens' and Phill Hawkins' research group

Monica Sanchez

Previously Emma worked at the European Animal Research Association where she facilitated an informed dialogue regarding biomedical animal research in order to promote a sustainable research environment. Emma first came to Cambridge in 2013 to do her postdoctoral research at the WT-MRC Cambridge Stem Cell Institute where she investigated protein transport during tumour development in stem cells.

Emma is the Public Engagement Officer working on the EU H2020 funded ORION project which aims to embed Open Science and Responsible Research and Innovation principles in research funding and performing organisations. Embedding these principles aims to make science more collaborative, transparent and accessible to all in order to align the whole research process with the values, needs and expectations of society. The ORION project is a collaborative project between two funders and four research institutes in four European countries. Find out how the Babraham Institute is contributing to ORION here. Emma joined the Institute in August 2017.
