Dr Rachael Zemek

Postdoctoral Researcher

University of Western Australia


Rachael Zemek completed her PhD at the University of Western Australia and the National Centre of Asbestos Related Diseases in 2019. Here her project focused on the divergent response to immune checkpoint blockade therapy for cancer, with the aim to identify biomarkers of response, as well as a way to pharmaceutically modulate the tumour to increase response rates.
Rachael now works as a post-doctoral researcher at the Telethon Kids Institute’s newly established Sarcoma Group at the Perth Children’s hospital in Australia. Here she is extending her research to target immune checkpoint resistant sarcoma tumours. Rachael looks to further her career with a postdoctoral position overseas next year.
