Abstract

This proposal aimed the acquisition of a flow cytometer and a microplate counter. The devices will be integrated into the equipment park of the Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Parasitology at the UNIFESP Paulista School of Medicine. This request is based on three associated projects and ten complementary projects. Among the associated projects are three FAPESP-funded projects (two Thematic Projects and one Young Investigators at Emerging Institutions Program project). Although addressing various topics in immunology, such as cancer, infections caused by fungi or parasites, autoimmunity and transplantation, all associated and complementary projects supporting this proposal have a common need to examine the phenotypic and functional characteristics of the cells, lymphoid or not, involved in each of those processes. In this context, methodological procedures such as cytometry and beta radiation quantitation become essential. (AU)
