Scientific Interest and Avenues for Collaboration
I am part of a translational research group aimed to identify immunological signatures that can predict response to treatment in patients receiving cancer immunotherapy. Our platform provides instrumentation, knowledge and scientific support for immune monitoring by using flow and mass cytometry. My primary role is to coordinate multidimensional single cell evaluations, including experimental design, panel design and validation, sample acquisition, and data analysis. My goal is to improve our workflow by implementing automated analysis techniques and to establish a cytometry training program for students, investigators, and clinicians in our institution.
