Emily Findlay obtained her PhD from Imperial College London, in the lab of Professor Tracy Hussell, examining T cell co-stimulation in autoimmune and infectious disease. She then took a postdoc role at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, investigating early T cell responses in malaria, with Dr Kevin Couper and Professor Eleanor Riley.

She subsequently moved to the Centre for Inflammation Research, University of Edinburgh, to study neutrophil responses to infection with Dr Donald Davidson. In 2016 she won a Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowship and a Wellcome Trust Strategic Support grant and set up her own lab, examining the impact of neutrophils on adaptive immune responses in a range of inflammatory diseases.
