2018. Vera becomes an isac SRL emerging leader!!!

Dr. Vera Tang, Flow Cytometry core manager and the Faculty’s local flow cytometry expert, was recently awarded high-level recognition from the International Society for Advancement of Cytometry (ISAC) in being selected as an Shared Resource Lab (SRL) Emerging Leader. Applicants, which included flow core managers from around the world, were required to demonstrate excellence in research, training/teaching and service in the field of flow cytometry. Dr. Tang’s important research in development of nanoscale flow cytometry, as well as her course teachings in flow cytometry and her leadership with training and project design to users of the Flow Cytometry core, were all contributors to her successful application.

 

ISAC’s members establish the international standards for flow cytometry. This prestigious recognition of Dr. Tang has put the Faculty on the map as an elite flow cytometry institution. Congratulations!
