Scientific Interest and Avenues for Collaboration My main interest in the past 8 years is Imaging Flow Cytometry, which combines the advantages of both microscopy and flow cytometry. I would like to utilize my broad experience to continue to develop new applications and new methods for this growing field, as well as advancing education and training. In addition, as unit head I am involved in developing various aids and tools to facilitate user training, unit operation and unit management. I intend to extend my collaborations with other institutes as well as ISAC committees in developing new flow cytometry applications, standardization of instrument usage, data analysis methods and improving SRL maintenance and management.
