Podcast: the many colors of tumor-specific T cells, Pia Kvistborg, Netherlands Cancer Institute

The Cytohub

It is well established that T-cell based immunotherapy can be very effective in treating cancers. Neo-antigens, which are epitopes that come about because of tumor-specific mutations caused by DNA damage are attractive targets for the immune system because central tolerance is lacking due to the tumor-restrictive nature. To study this, the group of Pia Kvistborg, […]

Flow cytometry and principles of panel design

The Cytohub

The correct choice of the reagents is an important consideration in flow cytometry as the wrong one can result in the loss of resolution in experimental data. In experiments involving the detection of several markers, the choice of the reagent panel is governed by whether the markers are co-expressed or not. In co-expressed markers, the […]
