Dr Emy Lucassen

CELS visiting lecturer

Dr Emy Lucassen

Emy obtained an MA in Natural Sciences from Cambridge University in 1985 and a PhD in Cancer Research from Berne, Switzerland in 1990. Her thesis was on the genetics of breast cancer, and through her observations concerning the application of genetic engineering when the technology was still in its infancy; she became increasingly interested in medical ethics. She completed an MA Medical Law and Ethics at King's College in 1995, and her dissertation under the supervision of Prof Sir Ian Kennedy was on prenatal genetic testing.

As well as lecturing in biochemistry and medical ethics, she spent ten years working in various roles for AstraZeneca (R & D, Communications, Corporate Affairs, Legal and Intellectual Property) and four years working for an educational charity aimed at encouraging young people to study science.

Her current work includes tutoring, consultancy, and writing. She has been a visiting lecturer and part of CELS at the University of Southampton since June 2011, and her role includes undertaking research activities (data analysis, writing and editing) and contributing to undergraduate education (on-line tutoring for final year students, small group facilitation, and marking).
