Eric Clambey, PhD
The University of Colorado Cancer Center has named Eric Clambey, PhD, Director of the Flow Cytometry Shared Resource. Dr. Clambey, Assistant Professor in the Department of Anesthesiology, is excited to assume his new role in a vital resource for the cancer center.
“My research focuses on the dynamic interface between the immune system, inflammation, and tissue repair,” Dr. Clambey explained. “In particular…how T cells, pivotal cells of the immune system, influence the balance between health and disease at mucosal surfaces, including the lungs and gastrointestinal tract.” Many of his studies have utilized the Flow Cytometry Shared Resource to look at how cells behave across these different disease contexts.
“The Flow Cytometry Shared Resource is a strong, vibrant Core that allows investigators across disciplines to access the power of flow cytometry. I have had the privilege of working with the CU Cancer Center Flow Core over many years,” Dr. Clambey explained.
Dr. Clambey, a self-proclaimed advocate for the power of flow-cytometric analysis, is enthusiastic about the future of the shared resource.
“I seek both to maintain the central strengths of this facility and to facilitate new strategic developments, including both instrumentation and data analysis. I am particularly excited about helping to bring new cutting-edge applications of cytometry to the cancer center,” he said. “With the development of new capabilities, I anticipate that the Flow Cytometry Shared Resource will remain a critical resource for researchers in the Cancer Center that empowers new scientific breakthroughs.”
Dr. Clambey received his doctorate in immunology from Washington University in St. Louis. ■
