About Emma Thompson

My PhD in molecular microbiology (investigating the function of RpoN in transcription initiation of nitrogen fixation genes) was awarded by the John Innes Centre and University of East Anglia, UK. Following a brief spell in R&D, developing automated microscopy for cryptosporidium monitoring, I moved into corporate communications, initially at drug discovery company, Astex, then the Babraham Institute, UK. Subsequently, I worked for around 10 years in various professional associations, developing membership strategy and communications. I'm currently a director/owner of a research consultancy serving the professional membership sector, and a freelance community manager.

Do we title the post "Behind the paper" and then give the title of the paper?

'Behind the Paper' is a channel in the Community; you should select 'Behind the Paper' from the list of Channels when drafting your post. The title of your post can be something catchy, a question, a fact or something that draws attention.  It doesn't need to be the same as the title of your manuscript.
