Advanced Flow Cytometry
Prerequisites for these certificate courses are BLD 850, BLD 851, BLD 852
OR experience in Flow Cytometry & approval of the professor.
BLD 853: Advanced Flow Cytometry (2 Credits) - is offered during summer semester as an online lecture course. This course covers the elements necessary for successful design of novel, 8-10 color assays in flow cytometry, sorting, and quality control.
BLD 854: Advanced Flow Cytometry Laboratory (2 Credits) - is a new course taught during the summer semester as a one-week hands-on experience that uses various flow cytometers across the MSU campus. It will give graduate students exposure to the concepts taught in BLD 853, such as sorting, 8 color assay development, and quality control.

Dr. Sue McQuiston’s experience in flow cytometry started in the Lab for Cell Analysis at the University of California San Francisco in 1989. Her subsequent work in the UCSF Transplant lab led to the first offering of the flow cytometry crossmatch on demand 24/7. During her graduate work in 1993, Dr. McQuiston worked with the first group to verify expression of TNF Receptors on human cells via flow cytometry. As a flow cytometry specialist for Avigen, Inc., she worked with stem cell transduction using viral gene therapy vectors. She returned to UCSF in 2003 to supervise the Flow Cytometry Section of the Cytometry Core Facility. Dr. McQuiston joined the faculty at the Biomedical Laboratory Diagnostics Program in May 2009 and has incorporated flow cytometry into all levels of undergraduate teaching. She also teaches and develops courses in flow cytometry at the graduate level.
