Not all great minds need to think alike: A case study from the GSK Immunology Network, Sponsored by GSK
Emma is the Laboratory and Operations Manager for the Immunology Catalyst, the academic secondment programme that forms the primary component of the Immunology Network. Emma has developed broad experience in GSK R&D over her 17 years at the company, having contributed and led multiple programme, matrix and leadership teams as well as having been involved in lab re-organisations and setting up research facilities. Emma’s experience, scientific expertise and people development skills means she has been well placed to support the onboarding and laboratory work of the academic immunologists on secondment at the GSK Stevenage site in the context of this new collaborative model. She continues to ensure that they are able to carry out their 3 year research projects effectively whilst interacting and collaborating across the wider GSK community.
