I recently sat down with Dr. Koki Morizono, an adjunct Professor at UCLA and frequent user of the UCLA Cores. In speaking with Dr. Morizono, I was surprised to hear that his research relies heavily on the Flow Cytometry Core, and that he does not have a commercially available alternative. His situation highlights the importance of our existence, and our efforts to provide our researchers with training and assistance when necessary.
“I do not have any alternative. I completely count on JCCC Flow Cytometry Core.”
“Myself and my technician were trained by the JCCC Flow Cytometry Core…the way we use the machine …and (the) background of flow cytometry itself.”
