Dr Erica Wilson


I am a Senior Postdoctoral Fellow in Experimental Haematology, in LIMR. I completed my BSc in Biomedical Sciences at Kings College, London, and my PhD in Cancer Immunotherapy at the University of Cambridge. My first postdoctoral position at the Terry Fox Laboratory, BC Cancer Research center, Vancouver, Canada, focused on the basic biology of murine Natural Killer cells, after which I moved to vVax Ltd in Leeds where I developed exosome-mediated drug delivery vehicles. I returned to academia at the University of Leeds to a Yorkshire Cancer Research funded post, working with Professor Graham Cook investigating tumour mediated inhibition of human Natural Killer cells. I later worked a as senior research fellow in Neuro-Oncology, developing immunotherapeutic strategies in Glioblastoma with Professor Susan Short and Professor Alan Melcher funded by The Brain Tumour Charity. My current work focuses on investigating NF-kB biology and lymphomagenesis in Mantle Cell Lymphoma with Professor Ulf Klein.
