Introduction

Emma Frow, Genomics Forum Research Fellow secures a year in Harvard and a new job.

Story

Congratulations to Genomics Forum Research Fellow Dr Emma Frow who has been appointed lecturer in Science, Technology and Innovation Studies at the University of Edinburgh.

Emma will be spending her first year in this new post in Harvard as a Science, Technology and Society Fellow.

Emma secured this opportunity while at the Forum and will be working with Professor Sheila Jasanoff on a project funded by the US National Science Foundation entitled 'Life in the Gray Zone: Governance of New Biology in Europe and the United States.' As part of this project, she will continue to work on synthetic biology, expanding the scope of her research to include a comparative cross-national dimension.

“Through this fellowship,” explains Emma “I hope to strengthen connections between the Science, Technology and Innovation Studies (STIS) research clusters in Edinburgh and at Harvard.”

While in the US, Emma is also planning a return visit to Arizona State University, to continue ongoing collaborations with the Center for Nanotechnology in Society.

Returning from Harvard in September 2012 Emma will take up her new lectureship at the University of Edinburgh. The Forum team wish her well and look forward to opportunities to continue working with her in this new role.
