Axel Schulz : High-Parametric Mass Cytometry: A single-cell, system-level technology for deciphering chronic inflammatory diseases
Thursday, 22 November 2018 || Time: 14:00
Mass cytometry permits deep cellular phenotyping in clinical immunology and basic research, with more than 40 parameters that can be measured simultaneously at single-cell level in one assay. This is achieved by combining principles of flow cytometry and inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS), a technology that has been developed for trace metal analysis.
This lecture introduces the principles of mass cytometry and its potential applications in the context of immunology research. We will explore how questions in chronic inflammation can be addressed by mass cytometric assays and will discuss an example of a system-level analysis of peripheral blood immune cells in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
when: 14:00-15:00, weekly, every Thursday
where: DRFZ, Seminar room 3, Charitéplatz 1
