Emma is a researcher with a substantial track record and international reputation in the field of Genomic healthcare - workforce development and education. Primarily working with the nursing and midwifery professions, Emma’s research has focused on health professional education and engagement, and service development initiatives within the UK for mainstreaming genomics across health services.
“My 14 plus years of research contributes to a foundation on which to take these activities forward. Importantly the work provides others outside of the UK with an insight of what can be achieved and how to go about it. As part of the Global Genomics Nursing Alliance I will continue to work internationally and collaboratively to advance the capability and capacity of the profession to deliver genomic healthcare and evidence the benefits of this new way of working for patients, families and communities.”
Dr Louise Bright, Director of Research and Business Engagement, said:
"Associate Professor and Professor are highly prestigious titles and
the most senior designations bestowed by the University in recognition
of excellence in the individual’s subject area."
As well as the established research and development route, progression to professorial title can be via four other routes namely research and development; innovation and engagement; teaching and learning and professional practice.
