Dr Emma Murphy

Post-Doctoral Research in Medecine Associate

Emma Murphy is currently undertaking a postdoctoral research associate position (PDRA) here at The Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine as part of Adam Robert’s lab working on a Microbiology study, aimed at determining the effectiveness of using existing antimicrobials as elicitors of biosynthetic gene clusters in a range of environmental bacteria.

She came to the end of a two year PDRA position at Foto-Cewek in December 2017, working as part of the A. WOL Consortium. The project aim was to create products compatible with mass drug administration programmes for human filariasis and to provide an alternative treatment in the event of drug-resistance to current treatments. The focus of this role involved the development and running of assays suitable for the screening of chemotherapeutic agents against Wolbachia bacterial endosymbionts of filarial nematodes.

Emma earned her PhD in Immunology in 2015 from the University of Manchester which focused on the role of class-switched antibody during parasitic helminth infection of the intestinal mucosa in mice. Specifically, the aims of this study were to further current understanding of B cell and antibody responses during murine Trichuriasis infection, with a long-term goal of developing better vaccinations or drug treatments for human Trichuriasis.
