PROFESSIONAL SKILLS

Surgical Pathologist with Profound Basic and Translational Research Training

I have more than 10 years of experience in basic and translational cancer research, focusing on hematological malignancies and the tumor immune microenvironment. This includes mouse models of solid and hematological tumors (genetically engineered mice, xenografts), flow cytometry, mass cytometry (CyTOF) and highly multiplexed fluorescence microscopy with 50+ markers (CODEX). I'm a very collaborative scientist and involved in numerous multi-institutional, multi-national scientific research projects.

PATHOLOGY

The Core of Cancer Medicine

Pathology is a clinical discipline of medicine. A pathologist's job is to accurately diagnose cancer, prognosticate outcome and predict response to therapy. In addition, pathologists play a key role in basic and translational medical research by providing expertise in tissue diagnostics, immunohistochemistry and molecular tests.

CODEX
HIGH-DIMENSIONAL MICROSCOPY

A Revolution

CODEX (Co-Detection by antibody indEXing) is a novel, revolutionary microscopy technology that allows the visualization of 50+ markers in a single tissue section. My main project in the Garry P. Nolan Lab at Stanford is to optimize CODEX for pathology samples and to use this technology to understand the cancer immune microenvironment.

FLOW CYTOMETRY, MASS CYTOMETRY
AND MULTIPLEXED ION BEAM IMAGING

Cancer Research Technology

I have more than 10 years of experience in classical multiparameter flow cytometry. In the Nolan Lab, I have acquired expertise in mass cytometry (CyTOF) and multiplexed ion beam imaging (MIBI), a new tissue-based cytometry method that makes use of metal-tagged antibodies.
