Dr. Benjamin J. Daniel is the Director of the Institutional Flow Cytometry Facility and a Research Assistant Professor in the department of Molecular Medicine at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center at San Antonio (UTHSCSA). He has more than 13 years of experience in flow cytometry and immunological research in the context of host/pathogen immune responses. More recently, his research entailed studying the dysfunction of the aged immune system in response to cancer. His current research includes modulation of T cell exhaustion to improve anti-cancer therapies in aging. His previous research included the study of tumor immune dysfunction, or how the tumor subverts one’s normal immunity into benefiting that of the tumor. He currently serves on the Flow Cytometry Core Managers Taskforce for the International Society for Analytical Cytometry (ISAC). He is also on the organizational committee for FlowTex; a Texas-based annual flow cytometry conference.
