Flow Cytometry Immune Monitoring Shared Resource

RRID:SCR_023432

RII Core Facility Pilot Grants - August 2, 2024 deadline

Date of publication

Description: The RII Core Facilities Pilot Program is designed to support three key types of activity within the RII-managed core facilities. Each CFPP proposal will be evaluated on scientific merit and feasibility, and should focus on one or more of the following activity types:

  1. The development of new methods or techniques that would extend the standard operating procedures and capabilities of RII-managed core facilities and potentially impact multiple UA researchers. Successful projects will result in new methods or techniques which will be disseminated to the UA research community via the core’s website, and be incorporated into the core’s standard operating procedures and capabilities.
  2. The acquisition of preliminary data needed for extramural proposals. Successful projects will result in at least one new extramural research proposal. PIs must note the specific extramural funding opportunity announcement for which they plan to submit and their anticipated submission date along with their CFPP application. A full justification of the anticipated studies is required.
  3. The technical training of students conducting research under existing extramural funding. Successful projects will result in student researchers with the technical skills to operate equipment safely, efficiently and independently within the core facility(ies). PIs should note the student(s) to be trained, the core(s) in which they will be trained, the equipment on which they are to be trained, and the funding source under which the student’s research project is funded. Proposals to train students from traditionally marginalized groups will be given funding priority.

Monitoring the immune system to unlock new treatments

Date of publication

"As researchers work to harness the power of the immune system to fight conditions such as cancer and to understand how to control autoimmune diseases including diabetes, many labs can benefit from specialized support. The Flow Cytometry and Human Immune Monitoring Shared Resource located in the UArizona Cancer Center can help provide highly sophisticated and detailed characterization of the immune system."

"'Truly understanding the immune system is not only powerful; it is critical," said Sara Centuori, PhD, director of the shared resource and research assistant professor of medicine at the College of Medicine – Tucson. 'Immune profiling is at the forefront of understanding why diseases affect who they affect, the way they behave, and why some therapeutics work for some people but don’t for others.'”

The Flow Cytometry portion of this Shared Resource is jointly supported by the UACC and the RII Core Facilities. For more information on the FC&HIMSR on this website, follow this link.
