Jessica joined the SAFB Flow Cytometry Core Facility in January 2016. With a background in respiratory biology, Jessica has 3 years experience using flow cytometry and FACS to analyse and isolate a rare pulmonary stem cell population. Since joining the facility, she has sorted a range of cell types incuding innate lymphoid cells, neutrophils, haematopoeitic stem cells, and epithelial cells.
Jessica is keen to learn novel applications, and to help the facility's users to develop their experimental protocols.
