The Cytometry team assists Stowers scientists by providing technical services and collaborative support for the comprehensive measurement of cells and their properties.
The Cytometry Facility is a state-of-the-art laboratory that provides Stowers researchers with a resource for analytical and preparative studies of cells using flow cytometry. The Cytometry team provides a full range of services including routine sample processing, cell staining, data analysis and strategic planning for novel assays and custom cell sorting applications. Collaborative projects encompass a broad scope of research topics and often result from a group effort among several of the Institute’s scientific support teams.

After graduating from the University of Missouri, Kansas City, with a BS in biology, Jeffrey S. Haug held several research and clinical positions, in which he relied on cytometric tools to gain new insights into cancer biology. In 1994, he joined the Washington University School of Medicine in the Division of Bone Marrow Transplantation, St. Louis, where he actively participated in both clinical and basic stem cell research. He designed custom flow cytometry applications for the bone marrow transplant division that were the most sensitive, accurate and rapid cytometric assays for blood stem cells available at the time. In 2000, Haug was recruited to the Stowers Institute to establish a Cytometry Facility, which he manages based on the collaborative style of core resource management that he developed at Washington University.
