Collapse Growing a Cytometry Core Facility: Adding Value with Hardware and Education: Innovation (2013 Scientific Tutorials PreCongress Course)
Core facilities are now common in all work settings. Flow cytometry is a well-established technique but the core faces particular challenges in the face of expanding technology. In particular, cores need to bring added value to their users and institutional setting. But how can core facility staff keep up with the latest developments, how can they receive appropriate continuing education and how can this be passed on to users of a facility? We will discuss evaluation of technology and strategies for importing this into a core and also how education on site, at relevant meetings and by remote learning can benefit the facility. At the end of the tutorial the delegate will be aware of the approaches that can be taken to bring added value to the core, its staff and its users.

    Collapse Enhancing the Shared Resource Laboratory through the Use of Social Media

    Ryan Duggan

    Ryan Duggan will be presenting the webinar "Enhancing the Shared Resource Laboratory through the Use of Social Media." Ryan serves as the Technical Director of the Flow Cytometry Core Facility at the University of Chicago (UCFlow).

    The past decade has seen a dramatic emergence of new media forms (such as social media) and web-(or"cloud") based tools that have had a significant impact on the ways in which individuals and organisations interact and conduct business. Like other areas of science and industry, shared resource laboratories (SRLs) have much to gain from leveraging these technologies. This webinar will share some of my experiences in utilising these tools. New media will be discussed in the context of enhancing SRL visibility and status and interacting with colleagues and customers. These tools will give your facility renewed confidence in providing high quality services in an efficient manner while expanding your user base within and beyond your own Institution.

    The keys to a successful research core facility are a shared responsibility between the institutional research administration and the individual core directors. Both play important roles in providing the necessary resources and strategies to insure the research missions of the cores are efficiently and effectively met. This requires the alignment of goals and coordination of efforts in business planning, forecasting, and marketing. The presenter will share some personal experiences and approaches to the every day challenges of growing a successful core. We will address such challenges as:

    • Developing the right core environment
    • The Customer-Core relationship
    • Expense recovery vs. affordable rates
    • Growing the user base
    • Establishing an efficient (lean) operation
    • Recruiting/retaining quality staff
    • Ensuring quality data
    • Planning for the future

    Approaching these challenges from a day-to-day perspective is an important part of effectively integrating the larger goals of the institution; no one knows your strengths and weaknesses better than you.

    Collapse  Business Continuity and Risk Mitigation for Shared Resource Core Laboratories by Sheenah Mische

    Sheenah Mische

    Sheenah Mische, PhD, is the Senior Director in the Office of Collaborative Science. Dr. Mische oversees the Cores, providing a centralized administrative structure, and promoting state-of-the-art, service-oriented resources for the research community. Under the leadership of Associate Dean for Collaborative Science David Levy, she determines priorities for investment in new technologies, Cores, and services at the NYU Langone Medical Center. Dr. Mische has broad experience in the operation and administration of multi-technology, multidisciplinary resource centers in support of institutional research missions, both in academia and in industry.  In her most recent positions, she was Director of Translational Sciences, and Associate Director for Talent Acquisition and Academic Relations at Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals. She was also previously Director of the Protein / DNA Technology Center at Rockefeller University.

    In recent years, research institutions and biomedical centers have suffered significant losses to research due to severe weather and other disasters.  Unfortunately, severe weather events are becoming more commonplace and Superstorm Sandy has brought climate impacts and risk into the conversation in ways not even contemplated before this October 2012 event.   The buzz word “business continuity planning” is a strategic plan to prevent, if possible, and to minimize and manage the consequences of an event that interrupts critical business processes.  From a biomedical research enterprise perspective, the business of research increasingly relies on centralized resource centers/cores, making them a critical and highly vulnerable component due to the concentration of instrumentation and resources.  This session will discuss business continuity planning, and both strategic and tactical considerations for emergency planning and risk mitigation.

    Collapse Bridging Flow Cytometry with New Technologies

    Research projects frequently encompass technologies from more than one Shared Resource Lab (SRL). Novel applications, such as single-cell RNASeq downstream of cell sorting, may require the involvement of several SRLs from sample collection to data analysis. Often little to no communication between the client and the core staff occurs with regards to the experimental goals or the upstream and downstream processes related to a service request. This tutorial will discuss applications for which multiple core technologies are needed to complete a research project and strategies for effective communication, cooperation and coordination between staff of different cores. Upon conclusion of the tutorial, attendees will have specific tools to aid in the integration of new technologies from other cores into investigator-driven projects that utilize their SRL.

    Collapse Flow Cytometry Data Management-Drinking from the Firehose (without Getting Wet)

    Flow Cytometry is a high-content technology, and unique in the complexity, not to mention the sheer volume of data of data that it generates. Typical experiments in the “pre-digital” era averaged in the 1-10 Mbyte range, whereas experiments done on modern digital instruments average over 100 times as much, and some extend well above 1000-fold larger. Techniques that were once adequate to manage data were not scalable, now leaving researchers and core facilities in a quandary: how do they store, organize, transfer, back up, archive and analyze these very large volumes of data? In this workshop we will get into the way-back machine and travel back to the time when storing and distributing data on CDs seemed so much better than floppy disks or ZIP drives. We will then pose the problem of today’s data in the context of yesterday’s technology and finally illustrate with examples some solutions that current computing technology, together with innovative software, have to offer.

     

    After the tutorial, the participant will understand the full dimension of the challenge of data management, and will be conversant in the technologies and strategies that can be utilized to effectively “drink from the firehose”.

    Collapse Optimizing SRL Performance – 1: Boost your Cell Sorting Capacity by Rui Gardner

    Rui Gardner, Gulbenkian Institute, Portugal

    Rui Gardner’s scientific career began just before graduating in Biochemistry in 1997, as a trainee in mathematical biology. This set the ground for his doctoral work, a mathematical approach to understand the prooxidative mechanisms of superoxide dismutase, paradoxically known as one of the most powerful physiological antioxidant enzymes. Most of the work was carried out in the department of Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Michigan, but also at the University of Southern California and the Gulbenkian Institute of Science in Portugal. In 2004, Rui earned his PhD in Biomedical Sciences, followed by postdoctoral work on evaluating immune diversity estimation techniques, still at the Gulbenkian Institute, where in the end of 2006 he became SRL Manager of the Flow Cytometry facility, job he still holds. Since 2007, Rui has been actively involved with ISAC’s SRL Task Force, and in 2012 was elected for ISAC’s Council, currently chairing the ISAC SRL Oversight Committee responsible for implementing and improving ISAC’s SRL-related activities and programs. In the last years, Rui has focused his efforts in addressing cell sorting performance based on the almost 10-year long experience running a cell sorting facility, as well as promoting meetings and discussions within the SRL community to help improve facility operations and management.  

     

    Webinar Summary:

    In the first of a series of webinars addressing strategies to optimize operations and management in a Shared Resource Lab (SRL) we’ll focus on enhancing cell sorting capacity. Many sorting facilities struggle with the increased demand in usage. The typically limited installed capacity of droplet cell sorters, which is directly associated to the requirement of a dedicated operator, usually leads to a narrow range of solutions to increase this capacity. Strategies are most often reduced to buying a new instrument, implying an increase in the number of FTEs or most likely increasing dramatically the burden of the current FTE, inevitably decreasing quality or SRL performance. With the advent of the new and more automated cell sorters, different and more creative solutions to increase cell sorting capacity are being addressed, including self-service sorting with all the implications associated to it. We’ll discuss several of these strategies, and present additional approaches to optimize usage of the current instrumentation, independent of their level of automation. These may include small technical implementations to reduce instrument setup, instrument troubleshooting guides, booking strategies to optimize resource usage, staggering shifts or “on call” staff to assist sorts that cannot be scheduled within normal sorting hours. There is no general strategy that will fit all facilities as some of these approaches may even collide with institutional or country-specific policies. Nevertheless, our aim is to lay down some of the possible strategies, open a discussion towards addressing this issue in a systematic way, and hopefully inspire new creative solutions from peers.

    Collapse Flow Cytometric Analysis of Endothelial Colony Forming Cells and Hematopoietic Progenitor Cells in Lung Vascular Disease by Kewal Asosingh and Imaging Flow Cytometry in the Study of Immune Cell Functions by Andrew Filby

    Kewal Asosingh

    Flow Cytometric Analysis of Endothelial Colony Forming Cells and Hematopoietic Progenitor Cells in Lung Vascular Disease presented by Kewal Asosingh (ISAC Scholar)

    Dr. Asosingh is a Staff Scientist, Assistant Professor of Molecular Medicine and Scientific Director for Flow Cytometry at Cleveland Clinic’s Lerner Research Institute. In 2011, he was chosen by the International Society for Advancement of Cytometry (ISAC) as an ISAC Scholar, recognition of emerging scientific research leaders in the profession. He has provided Stem Cell Cytometry training seminars at ISAC meetings, chaired oral presentation sessions on personalized medicine, and has been serving as abstract reviewer, member of the program committee for the annual ISAC meetings (“CYTO”) and reviewer for Cytometry Part A. Dr. Asosingh is also co-leader of the CYTO University (CYTO U) eLearning Delivery Task Force. Dr. Asosingh teaches flow cytometry to undergraduate and graduate students at the Cleveland Clinic and at Lakeland Community College. As Scientific Director of the Flow Cytometry Core, he serves as primary contact with investigators to provide advice on experimental design and data analysis/interpretation and assures that data generated by the Flow Core is of the highest quality.

    Webinar Summary:

    Dr. Asosingh’s lab studies bone marrow stem cells in pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and pathological angiogenesis in asthma. The group has established mouse models for both diseases, and close collaboration with clinicians facilitates rapid transition of the basic research findings to clinical studies. In the past decade it has become evident that bone marrow hematopoietic stem cells exert functions beyond hematopoiesis. During development, endothelial cells and hematopoietic stem cells originate from a common bipotent mesodermal stem cell called the hemangioblast. In post-natal life, this connection is maintained via paracrine interactions between the endothelium and circulating hematopoietic progenitor cells. Their critical role in vascular homeostasis and repair of endothelial injury has opened new therapeutic perspectives for vascular degenerative diseases. The flipside of the coin is that abnormalities in hematopoiesis may underlie pathological angiogenesis, and this is exactly what his group is focused on.  Recent findings from the group show that hematopoietic stem cells isolated from the bone marrow of PAH patients are able to transfer the disease in humanized NOD SCID mice. PAH is a devastating disease characterized by endothelial cell injury, in situ thrombi and right ventricular hypertrophy. Animals engrafted with hematopoietic stem cells from PAH patients, but not from healthy control participants, had increased mobilization of progenitor cells in the peripheral blood, just like in patients, and strikingly developed many features of PAH.  Current focus of the team is to further reveal the mechanisms by which hematopoietic stem cells cause pulmonary vascular disease. This webinar will provide an overview of the different types of “endothelial progenitor cells” with special emphasis on endothelial colony forming cells and pro-angiogenic hematopoietic progenitor cells and their roles in PAH.

    Andrew Filby

    Imaging Flow Cytometry in the Study of Immune Cell Functions presented by Andrew Filby (SRL Emerging Leader)

    Dr Filby is currently head of the Flow Cytometry Core Facility at Newcastle University.  He leads a dedicated team of flow cytometry specialists with the sole aim of providing a comprehensive, cutting edge cytometry resource to the wider research community at Newcastle University and beyond.  A significant part of his focus is the development of novel cytometry-based techniques that have underpinned several high profile publications including in Science, Cell and the Cytometry Part A paper of the year accolade (2011).  He specialises in Imaging Flow Cytometry and the use of fluorescence dyes to track cell proliferation.  Prior to and post selection as an ISAC Shared Resource Laboratory Emerging Leader (SRLEL), Dr Filby has made several contributions to the Cyto conference programmes including interactive workshops and scientific talks.  He continues to contribute to the efforts of ISAC including serving on the Image Cytometry and E-learning task forces.  In addition to his work within ISAC, he is also heavily involved in supporting cytometry research and education in South America including initiatives for remote support and training.

    Webinar Summary:

    In this short webinar Dr Filby will give a brief overview of his work within the field of Imaging Flow Cytometry and what impact this has had on a number of key publications in the field of immunology and cell cycle biology.  These include the study of asymmetric cell division in the immune system, the measurement of organelle-specific calcium mobilisation in activated T cells and the analysis of the cell cycle in fission yeast.  In each case, the ability to capture and analyse literally thousands of multispectral, spatially registered images was essential to questions each method was designed to address.  Finally, Dr Filby will also discuss what the SRL EL programme means to him and how he hopes it will benefit the wider cytometry community through various initiatives he is involved in.

    Webinar Summary:

    Novel applications, such as single-cell RNASeq, induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) generation and CRISPR-mediated genome editing, have revolutionized the way that cells can be analyzed and manipulated to investigate developmental pathways and disease processes.  These technologies can also benefit from using flow cytometry as an upstream or downstream process and, when combined, may require the involvement of several Shared Resource Labs (SRLs) from sample collection to data analysis. This webinar will highlight research projects that have utilized the above applications in combination with flow cytometry and/or cell sorting, discuss critical parameters that should be considered for successful experimental outcomes and provide strategies for coordination among core facility staff and investigators.  This discussion is aimed to provide ideas on the integration of new technologies from other cores into investigator-driven projects that utilize their SRL.

    Collapse Beyond the Bivariate: Towards a Flow Cytometry Computational Pipeline by Wade Rogers

    Wade Rogers

    Wade Rogers has been interested in pattern discovery for about 20 years.  It began with 'TupleWare', an algorithm for discovering patterns in gene and protein sequence data, first at DuPont and later at Bristol-Myers Squibb.  Later, he and colleagues expanded to include patterns in arbitrary categorical data.  For the past 10 years he has focused almost exclusively on the challenges of analyzing flow cytometry data at the University of Pennsylvania.

    Webinar Summary:

    Single cell analyses are becoming major players in life science markets.  However, the increasing dimensionality, complexity and volume of data produced by flow cytometry pose a serious challenge that must be overcome in order to realize the full clinical potential of the method. High dimensional cell-based measurements, coupled with sophisticated computational analysis (collectively termed “cytomics”) may yield phenotypic or functional patterns that can provide informative biomarkers for discovery and clinical use.  We envision an industrial-scale computational framework that will support the development and deployment of a data analysis pipeline that (a) is robust, hardened, and fully automated, eliminating analysis subjectivity and facilitating regulatory filing, (b), can be deployed in a centralized application-as-service business model for prospective, on-demand analysis of laboratory data and (c) enables retrospective datamining of cytomic data for analysis and discovery of new biomarkers.
