About Dr Thomas Ashhurst
Dr. Thomas Ashhurst is a Senior Cytometry Scientist with the Sydney Cytometry Core Research Facility, an Honorary Research Fellow in Infection, Immunity, and Inflammation at The University of Sydney.
The rapid development of new high-dimensional cytometry, single-cell, and spatial technologies allow for detailed investigations into the immune response in infectious and inflammatory diseases. The capacity to harmonize data generated across multiple batches, experiments, and technologies would substantially increase the scale and impact of these new approaches. In this seminar we will discuss new methods and strategies for the integration and analysis of cytometry, single-cell, and spatial data for comprehensive mapping of immune dynamics across time, space, and disease. Specific applications will include constructing a developmental map of the circulating immune system over the human lifetime, integrating complex batches across multiple cohorts in COVID-19 infection or vaccination, and spatial analysis of cellular infiltration in a mouse model of viral encephalitis.
