Rachel Chambers is a Professor of Respiratory Cell and Molecular Biology within the Division of Medicine, Vice-Dean (Enterprise) for the Faculty of Medical Sciences and is Director of the Centre for Inflammation and Tissue Repair.

She currently directs a centre of six principal investigators (PI's) and a total of 35 academic staff within the Division of Medicine at UCL. Her research focus is on the elucidation of the cell and molecular mechanisms leading to lung inflammation, remodeling and fibrosis. Current work is aimed at delineating the contribution of procoagulant signaling pathways to lung fibrosis, acute lung injury (ALI) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Professor Chambers also leads a discovery biology group at UCL as part of a major academic-industry collaboration with GSK in the area of fibrosis. Her research is funded by major peer-reviewed grants awarded from the MRC, the Wellcome Trust and the British Lung Foundation and has been published in highly regarded peer reviewed journals. Professor Chambers is also a member of the European Union Framework Programme 7 - funded international eurIPFnet consortium and acts as Associate Editor for the American Journal of Physiology - Lung Cellular and Molecular Physiology.
