She is the winner of a 2012 Alumni Scholarship from The University of Sydney. These awards are given to only two PhD students in the whole of the Health Faculties of The University of Sydney annually. They are awarded on the basis of academic excellence and outstanding research potential.

Emma has also won 3rd prize in the High Achieving Young Investigator Award for the 6th Australian Association of Chinese Biomedical Scientists. Her talk was titled: “Dipeptidyl Peptidase 9 Cell Biology”; the presentation included recent data from the new ground state depletion(GSD) Super Resolution Microscope.
