The Flow Core is pleased to announce its new Director, Ningchun Xu, PhD, CCy. Dr. Xu is a certified cytometrist from Pennsylvania State University, where she joined after conducting postdoctoral fellowships at Brigham and Women’s Hospital & Harvard Medical School, the Institute of Life Sciences, Ajinomoto Co., Inc., Japan, and the University of Tokyo, Japan.
GRU has been without the capability of sorting unfixed human cells for the last 2 years, which has been a roadblock for many researchers. Dr Xu is working with the Biosafety Committee to rectify this situation. She is currently capable of sorting human cells on the BD InfluxTM, which was recently acquired by the Flow Core, and is close to being certified to sort cells on the BD FACSAriaTM.
