Foudazi with Houston funded $40K by Cowboys for Cancer Research

Cowboys for Cancer Research funded Dr. Reza Foudazi (PI), Dr. Jessica Houston (co-PI), and Dr. Hassan Pouraria (postdoctoral researcher) for the project entitled “Elasto-inertial microfluidics platforms for enrichment of exosomes for cancer diagnosis.” Exosomes are clinically important non-invasive biomarkers for cancer prognosis, treatment selection, and treatment monitoring. They are the smallest extracellular vesicles (EVs) with…

Immunophenotyping with time-resolved flow cytometry

Description: Flow cytometry is a fluorescence-based approach that evaluates cells based on protein expression, among many other cellular features. This project will involve testing a specialty time-resolved flow cytometer to determine how it can improve routine immunophenotyping protocols. Routine protocols involve taking white blood cells, labeling with fluorescent antibodies, and counting with a flow cytometer….
