Guess Who?

This faculty member studies hematopoiesis, cancer and leukemia, autoimmunity and inflammation, and develops computational approaches for network and systems immunology. He is most well known for developing a mass spectrometry-flow cytometry hybrid device known as the CyTOF.

Garry Nolan


We are working to enable a deeper understanding not only of normal immune function, but also detailed substructures of leukemias and solid cancers as well as autoimmunity and pathogen effects upon the immune system. Our laboratory has already begun a large scale mapping of the hematopoietic hierarchy in healthy human bone marrow at an unprecedented level of detail.
