TownsendDr Sue Townsend
Sue completed her bachelors in biotechnology in Dublin City University, followed by a PhD in applied biochemistry. After graduating in 2010 she was awarded a post-doctoral fellowship grant in the Global Bio-Therapeutics division in Pfizer. Four years later, having spent her entire career to date working with antibodies and publishing the bulk of her research, she decided it was time to move out of academic research and into industry. In 2014, nearing the end of her fellowship, Sue’s search led her to Immunocore. She joined the company as a senior scientist, a lab based role, in the research department and said goodbye to the antibody world. More recently, she has moved into the role of group leader within the protein science - pipeline department.
