Ms Emma H Kromann
Emma received her BSc in Molecular Biomedicine from the University of Copenhagen in 2020, which she followed up with an MRes in Biomedical Research at Imperial College London. During her master’s she completed projects on the role of hypoxia in follicular helper T cell differentiation and pH sensing in pancreatic cancer cells.
In 2021, Emma joined the Mechanics of Life Leverhulme Doctoral Scholarship Programme at King’s College London which aims to tackle outstanding questions in biology from a distinctly mechanical perspective. She is currently studying how innate lymphoid cells participate in beneficial and pathological intestinal matrix remodelling using an in vitro hydrogel-organoid co-culture system in a collaborative project between Dr Joana F Neves and Dr Eileen Gentleman.
