Join colleagues for a seminar that addresses the current state of extracellular vesicle research and outstanding questions in the field. The seminar will be followed by a technical overview to introduce guidelines for reporting EV measurements, methods and results, plus a wet lab demonstration. This event will take place on the South Waterfront on Tuesday, Dec. 3, and be repeated at the Marquam Hill Campus on Wednesday, Dec. 4.
John Nolan, Ph.D., professor at the Scintillon Institute, a non-profit research institute, has developed flow cytometry-based methods for high-resolution analysis of extracellular vesicles. Prior to Scintillon, he directed the National Flow Cytometry Resource at Los Alamos National Laboratory. Nolan, a fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering, is a past president of the International Society for Advancement of Cytometry.
The seminar and demonstration will be hosted on the South Waterfront and Marquam Hill.
Tuesday, Dec. 3
Knight Cancer Research Building, auditorium 1015
The Julie Saugstad lab at OHSU has been collaborating with the Nolan lab on vFC analysis of EVs in plasma and CSF. The on-site demo will also serve the purpose of transferring the vFC assay from the Nolan lab to the Saugstad lab.
11 a.m. to noon: “Understanding EV diversity using single vesicle flow cytometry,” John Nolan, Ph.D.
Noon to 1 p.m.: Demo — Principles of vFC, experimental design, calibration, and standards Instrument considerations, set up, and data analysis Guidelines for reporting vFC methods, and results.
Note: Wet lab demonstration will be held Wednesday, Dec. 4, 1 to 2 p.m., Richard Jones Hall, room 5380.
