Description

Lymphocytes are important white blood cells in the immune system that invade tumors and hold potential for cancer treatment. Understanding their phenotype and functionality through flow cytometry analysis is essential for developing cell therapy drug products and these skills are crucial for building a career in the Immuno-Oncology field. In this Build Project, you will get a solid foundation in flow cytometry to independently analyze basic flow cytometry panels & generate data summaries. You will analyze at least one primary seven or eight-color flow cytometry panel to characterize lymphocytes that can exert anti-tumor activity. You'll also learn to use popular software tools like FlowJo & GraphPad Prism to analyze and visualize data.

What you will learn

  • Learn what adoptive cell therapies are and the significance of them in the treatment of cancer
  • Learn what flow cytometry is and how it used in the biotechnology industry
  • Learn how to effectively visualize and communicate your analyzed data for presentation
Build Projects are 8-week experiences that operate on a rolling basis. Selected participants engage in weekly live workshops with a Build Fellow and 2-15 other students.

Prerequisites

  • A basic understanding of immunology: you should be able to explain the difference between innate & adaptive immune system and identify the cells of the immune system. There will be a chance to review some of the concepts in the first workshop.
  • Being comfortable using MS PowerPoint, MS Excel and MS Word. Before the project starts, you'll need to have the above-mentioned tools, or their alternatives installed on your computer.
