Emma McMurtry

Emma has worked in the pharmaceutical industry for almost 20 years, since 2018 working through her own business as a consultant to small Biotech companies and universities within the pharmaceutical sector providing input into new clinical study designs and protocols and reviewing patient data when they take part on clinical trials. Prior to that she worked as a Principal Medical Scientist at AstraZeneca for 17 years. Her experience is mainly in cancer drug development, primarily in adults but with some experience in children’s cancer which is where her interest in joining Kidscan came from.

Emma holds a BSc(Hons) in Biomedical Sciences from Sheffield University and a PhD in Clinical Gastrointestinal physiology from the University of Manchester.

Emma has a strong scientific and drug development background and a passion for developing new treatments for cancer, she hopes that this combination will be valuable to Kidscan
