Research Interest

Immunotherapy, CAR-T therapy
Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-T cell therapy is a major development in the field of immunotherapy for blood cancers, where it has already seen clinical success in the treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and diffuse large B-cell lymphomas. Rachel has recently joined the DRC as a part of the immunotherapy team, with a primary interest in the development of a CD19 CAR-T therapy for clinical trials in Canada. She completed her graduate studies at the University of Alberta, where she studied the therapeutic effects of targeted radiation and oncolytic vaccinia virus on pre-clinical models of glioblastoma.
