Thomas Cimato MD PhD will be presenting the webinar entitled “Flow Cytometry Analysis of Human Hematopoietic Progenitors in Cardiovascular Disease”. Dr. Cimato is an Associate Professor in the Division of Cardiology at the University at Buffalo Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences and Adjunct Investigator at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute.
His research focuses on the role of inflammation on hematopoietic differentiation in atherosclerosis. He is also involved in collaborative studies that focus on the role of hematopoietic progenitor cells as immune suppressor cells in cancer.
In this webinar he will discuss recent advances in our understanding of how early hematopoietic progenitors respond to hypercholesterolemia and myocardial infarction in animal models to accelerate atherosclerosis. He will discuss the development of an assay to measure human hematopoietic progenitors in blood, and early translational studies in human subjects with heart disease.
