Hannah was Program Manager of Human Tissue Research in the Irish lab and Scientific Director of the Cancer & Immunology Core (CIC). She started in the Irish lab in August 2012 and finished October 2017. Hannah went on to be Program Manager, Scientific Services at Cytobank Inc (LinkedIn Profile). Following Cytobank, Hannah went on to Graduate School at Vanderbilt University in 2018.
Degrees: B.S. in Biology, University of Minnesota
Hannah was focused on clinical translational applications of high dimensional single cell cytometry. Hannah also led mass cytometry (CyTOF) pilot program planning with collaborators for clinical and basic research studies.
Hannah’s Journal of Immunology paper used phospho-specific flow cytometry and high-dimensional mass cytometry (CyTOF) to compare signaling responses in mature human tonsillar B cells undergoing germinal center (GC) reactions. This first published mass cytometry study of primary human tonsillar germinal centers followed up on findings from Irish et al., PNAS 2010.
