Instructor in Medical Science (Research)


Rachel did her PhD in Medical Sciences at the Institute of Genetic Medicine, Newcastle University and her postdoctoral work at the Center for Computational Molecular Biology at Brown University. Her research interests span areas in genomic medicine, cardiovascular genomics, methods development for large-scale functional characterization of sequence variation, RNA processing defects resulting from coding variants, the molecular and phenotypic impact of structural variants, genetic etiology of sex-divergent cardiovascular phenotypes and sex-divergent variable drug response, employing multidisciplinary and integrative approaches to identify new loci and interpret sequence variation that confer risks to Mendelian and complex cardiovascular disorders for applications in precision medicine.
