My name is Kira Smith and I am a Sr. Research Specialist in the Pediatric Flow Cytometry core helping maintain the flow analyzers and run the cell sorters, along with training new users in the flow core.  I believe that having high quality flow cytometry and sorting is crucial for meaningful downstream experimental results, and that excellent flow cytometry data is critical for getting top tier flow related publications. I have more than 10 years of flow cytometry experience. I hold a BSc in Biology from Texas A&M University and a PhD. in Clinical Medicine from the University of Oxford. In my free time I enjoy baking, reading, traveling the globe, and spending time with my friends and family.
