Scientific Interest and Avenues for Collaboration My main interest is in producing a robust, on-going educational program that focuses on both theoretical and hands-on training. I believe a strong focus on cytometry education will assist in the production of high quality, reproducible data and will enable better experimental design. My personal research interests are focused on neuro-immunology, specifically the interaction of the immune and nervous systems in neuro-inflammatory diseases.
