The FCC supplies flow cytometry instrumentation, experimental protocols, technical support, maintenance, and administration for optical biology instruments that are very intensively used in a variety of research endeavors.  Much of the immunology, cell biology, and infectious disease work carried out at the CNPRC
would be impossible without services provided by the FCC, including established work on SIV pathogenesis, development of novel vaccines, analysis of the interplay of the microbiome and immune system development, and new research on Zika virus.
The FCC’s focus on nonhuman primate assays and experience developing new assays for novel immunophenotypes are unique strengths.  For example, the FCC has expertise in identification of Mamu-E-restricted T cell responses and FcRɣ-negative (“memory”) NK cells.  The FCC also has unique strength in assessment of immunophenotypes and inflammation in fetuses and infants. While tissues from young humans are difficult to obtain, tissues from young primates are uniquely available at the CNPRC. This availability has led to unique studies involving new pediatric models of normal development, maternal and fetal inflammation, and infectious disease. Recently this experiencehas proven valuable for development of fetal and neonatal Zika models at CNPRC.
