Peng Qiu, associate professor in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory, has been named an ISAC Marylou Ingram Scholar by the International Society for Advancement of Cytometry (ISAC). Qiu’s scholar status extends through the year 2022. Scholars specialize in state of the art knowledge related to biomedicine, technology, and other areas of emerging sciences relevant to cytometry. The program is designed as a career development initiative for those under the age of 40.
Cytometry is the measurement of the characteristics of cells. One use of cytometry is in cell biology research and in medical diagnostics to characterize cells in a wide range of applications associated with diseases such as cancer.
Qiu’s research interests lie in the area of bioinformatics and computational biology. One of his main focuses is computational algorithms for analyzing single-cell characterizations, measured by flow cytometry, CyTOF, single-cell RNAseq, image-based profiling, microfluidics, and other single-cell technologies. ISAC is a great community and valuable resource for him to advance his research and develop collaborations.
