Congratulations to PhD candidate Emma Nance, who completed her Wellcome Trust One Health Models in Infectious Disease three month rotation project with LBEP from March-June 2021.

With her initial background in English literature and Law, Emma’s first steps as a wet lab scientist were a jump from the familiar. However, Emma was up and running in no time, successfully grasping the skill of allele replacement and creating a S. aureus knockout strain under the supervision of Fiona Sargison and Amy Pickering. She was then able to successfully validate her knockout in full, providing a valuable resource for future work.

Well Done Emma for knocking your project out of the park (just like a gene from a genome)!
