Immunology and Inflammation Core

The overall goals of the IIC are to provide state-of-the-art flow cytometry analysis of the cellular components of the immune and inflammatory responses involved in diabetes to meet the cellular phenotyping and cell sorting needs of DRC affiliates, technical expertise and consultation for DRC affiliate investigators.

To accomplish these goals the IIC provides the following to DRC affiliate investigators:

  • State-of-the-art flow cytometry-related services to characterize and isolate:
  • T- and B-lymphocytes and their subpopulations from blood and spleen of different species;
  • T-lymphocytes and macrophages from adipose tissue of different species;
  • Endothelial cells from several different tissues;
  • Islet endocrine cell subpopulations
  • Custom recombinant monoclonal antibodies for flow cytometry
  • New flow-cytometry related techniques to meet the DRC affiliate investigators’ needs
  • Expert training in flow cytometry principles and techniques
  • Consultation in planning, performance, and trouble-shooting of flow cytometry analyses
