Seattle Children's Research Institute

As a graduate student in Richard James’s lab at the Center for Immunity and Immunotherapies at Seattle Children's Research Institute, Rene studies how to experimentally reprogram human B cells to long-lived antibody secretion cells by developing a mathematical model of cell differentiation. This research will help design new protein deficiency therapies as a life-long treatment and antibody vaccine. Rene holds a B.S. in Clinical Laboratory Science and Medical Biotechnology from National Taiwan University.
