My name is Edward (Ed) Emmott and I am a Postdoc in Nikolai Slavov’s lab, part of the Department of Bioengineering and the Barnett Institute for Chemical and Biological Analysis at Northeastern University. My Postdoctoral research involves the study of ribosome heterogeneity and the immune response, as well as the development and application of single cell proteomic methods (SCoPE-MS). I moved to the Slavov lab in October 2017.

Previously I was a postdoc in Ian Goodfellow’s lab in the Department of Pathology at the University of Cambridge and Imperial College London where I studied norovirus replication and virus-host interactions.

My PhD was at the University of Leeds  under the supervision of Julian Hiscox, with my thesis on ‘High-throughput proteomics analysis of the interactions of avian coronavirus and its nucleocapsid with the host cell’. My Bachelors was from the University of Warwick in Medical Microbiology & Virology where my undergraduate research on Adenovirus interactions with PML bodies was supervised by Keith Leppard.
