Emma Scotter, PhD
Dept. of Clinical Neuroscience, King’s College London
I am a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Clinical Neuroscience at King’s College London. My research interests focus around using cells to model brain disease- to study the “disease in a dish”. In particular I’m interested in examining how proteins implicated in motor neuron disease are degraded by the cell, and why they accumulate in large clusters in the brains of people affected by disease. Together, members of the Shaw lab investigate both the genetic causes of motor neuron disease as well as its cellular consequences.
If you don’t find me in the lab (though you probably will!), I’ll be on the netball court or on an emergency chocolate run!
