The Vanderbilt University Cancer & Immunology Core (CIC) provides fee-for-service mass cytometry and other advanced cytometry services using well-established CIC Panels of metal-conjugated antibodies and standardized protocols.  The CIC aims to help researchers get a first mass cytometry figure or to carry out studies in areas where the technology development has been robust, such as monitoring human T cell subsets.

The CIC is operated by expert staff trained in the Irish lab in the Department of Cancer Biology at Vanderbilt University.  Jonathan Irish is Scientific Director of the CIC and Hannah Polikowsky is the Managing Director of the CIC.  For more information, see Contact information.

Groups who would like to develop their own antibodies and techniques, collect their own samples, learn to operate the instrument, or gain training in application standardization for larger studies may wish to join the Mass Cytometry Center of Excellence (MCCE).

Special thanks for the Vanderbilt Center for Immunobiology (VCI) for supporting the first murine mass cytometry CIC Panels at Vanderbilt in 2017!
