Who We Are

The Flow cytometry facility belongs to the Biological Sciences faculty of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile and is located in 5th floor of 150 building. This facility is directed by Dr. Alexis Kalergis, who is a full professor on this University. The service stared in 2005 with the aim of helping to the different researchers to solve their scientific concerns from flow cytometry perspective.

Director

Biochemestry of Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile and PhD in Microbiology and Immunology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in Nueva York–USA.

Later, he made two post-doctoral fellowship one in the Albert Einstein and the second in the Rockefeller University on New York, USA. Currently Dr. Kalerigs is full professor in the Biological Sciences faculty at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile leading his own laboratory on Biomedical Molecular Immunology. Additionally, Dr. Kalergis is the director of the Millenium Institute in Immunology and Immunotherapy allowing him generates some collaboration inside of this Immunology. At this moment, Dr. Kalergis leading and the first phase I clinical trial of a vaccine against one of the more important pathogens in public health as is the Respiratory Syncytial Virus, which affect principally newborns and elderly population collapsing public health services worldwide in winter months.
