Undergraduate Student, Level III
Lauren is a third year Honours Biochemistry student. Lauren has always been drawn to immunology and its pathological effects of diseases on the human body. Her past lab experiences were centered around cancer cell biology and gene networks, which subsequently sparked her interested in cancer treatment and immunotherapy.
Lauren's third year research project will be focusing on the effects of immunometabolism on NK cell function, and how they may be applied to cancer models, in conjunction with other anticancer immunotherapies.
