The molecular mechanisms of T-cell receptor recognition of CD1b presenting self lipid antigens (PhD)
Prof. Jamie Rossjohn
Dr Adam Shahine
Rachel Farquhar is a structural biologist based at the Biomedical Discovery Institute as a member of the Rossjohn Lab. She is currently doing a PhD focused on the molecular mechanisms of T-cell receptor recognition of CD1b presenting self lipid antigens. This fascinating immune focused study has allowed Rachel to develop an extensive skill set in cell work, protein production, crystallisation and the structural determination and analysis of proteins.
Rachel is supported by an Australian Government RTP stipend. Looking ahead, Rachel is keen to expand her skills base further and over time develop her own independent research career in academia.
