Scientific Interest and Avenues for Collaboration
As the head of our institute’s combined cytometry, microscopy, and histology core facility, I am interested in helping users synthesize these complementary technologies to enable better experimental design. My personal scientific interest is mitochondria, as these organelles accompanied me for a long time and are wonderful objects for flow cytometry and microscopy analyses.
