Research Interests

As the Immunology Core Director, I am responsible for performing flow cytometry sample acquisition, sorting, and data analysis using our two cytometers: BD’s FACSCalibur and Aria II Sorter. 

Many years of immunology research experience in human and animal samples with advanced immunoassays, techniques and methods allow me to consult with clients in their flow cytometry experimental design, troubleshooting and results interpretation.

I also provide guidance and support for our ProteOn XPR36 Protein Interaction array instrument.
