Erica Wilson


I am a lecturer in Immunology in the School of Molecular and Cellular Biology, Faculty of Biological Sciences. 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 worked in a small biotech company on exosome technology. I returned to academia at the University of Leeds to Yorkshire Cancer Research funded posts, working with Professor Graham Cook investigating tumour mediated inhibition of human Natural Killer cells. I later worked as a senior research fellow in Neuro-Oncology and Haematology developing immunotherapeutic strategies in Glioblastoma with Professor Susan Short and Professor Alan Melcher; and investigating NF-kB biology and lymphomagenesis in Mantle Cell Lymphoma with Professor Ulf Klein.
