Rachael Walker

Rachael has over a dozen years of experience in flow cytometry and cell sorting and nearly 10 years of working in flow cytometry core facilities. Rachael joined the core in September 2012, following 7 years running Flow Cytometry Core Facilities at the University of Cambridge. Rachael has extensive experience in analysis and sorting cells of differing types including; immunology, cell biology, stem cell biology, large cells such as cardiomyocytes, c. elegan eggs; organelles such as nuclei. Rachael can provide expertise in experimental setup, optimisation and analysis. She can help with optimal instrument set up, post-acquisition analysis of data and preparing figures for papers. Education: 2005- PhD in Tissue Engineering, Department of Clinical Engineering, University of Liverpool 2001- BMedSc (Honours), Biomedical Materials Science, University of Birmingham
