Welcome to Cytobank User Stories, a series featuring interviews with Cytobank users on their research, scientific vision, and use of flow cytometry.
This time we interview Harris Fienberg, a Ph.D. candidate in the Nolan Lab at Stanford University. Harris’s most recent publication features his work developing a cell viability detection protocol for mass cytometry using a platinum-based reagent. You can view and analyze the data firsthand via his Cytobank Report.

|(more…)Over the last 30 years we’ve gained an extraordinary understanding of the molecular components that make up cellular signaling cascades. However, we’re just beginning to understand how the various components of the cell work together to integrate signals and relay these signals to form phenotypic outcomes. I’m interested in gaining a more holistic understanding of cellular communication. In the future I believe that specific proteins will be seen less in the context of certain signaling pathways and more as words that the cell uses to make a message. I think that reaching this more comprehensive understanding of cellular signaling will be more about about integrating data with smart data analytics than gaining more and more “-omics” style data sets.|
