Lab manager and Project Coordinator in the Cardiovascular Genetics lab at Royal Brompton campus - specialising in next-generation DNA sequencing.
Project Coordinator for the Heart Hive - an online platform to connect researchers with patients with cardiomyopathy and myocarditis. The Heart Hive participants control their own data, decide which research opportunities to take part in and can feedback directly to researchers to help design more impactful studies.
Rachel graduated from University of Bristol in 2005, completed a Masters degree at Imperial College in 2006 and joined the group in 2007.
