My role at the Earlham Institute is to manage and operate instrumentation in the cellular genomics laboratory, to enable smooth workflows to downstream processing, foster collaborations, and implement cost recovery strategies to enhance sustainability.

I previously managed the Quadram Institute’s flow cytometry facility and the UEA’s flow cytometry service.

I also coordinate the Norwich Cytometry Network (NCN), which brings together facility Flow Cytometry managers and users from across the Norwich Research Park. We share challenges and innovations with the instrumentation available within each of the cytometry facilities, and discuss the breadth of ongoing research that these support, in order to facilitate exchange of best practice and increase collaboration and coordination between them.

We aim to meet bi-annually and welcome attendees from the Earlham Institute, John Innes Centre, The Sainsbury Laboratory, Quadram Institute, University of East Anglia and the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. Meeting content will be updated accordingly with new developments and users.

Our next meeting is planned for:
Wednesday 7 June 13:30-14:30, Jane Rogers Seminar Room, Earlham Institute

Topics: Each facility will provide a ten-minute overview of the instrumentation in their facility and current research undertaken using this equipment.

If you are interested in finding out more about the facilities, or want to keep up-to-date with plans for our next meeting, please email me or - if based on the Norwich Research Park - contact your facility manager.
