All my best,





Jonni  Moore received her Ph.D. in Microbiology and Immunology at Thomas
Jefferson University and joined the Department of Pathology and
Laboratory Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania in 1984 as a
postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Peter Nowell. She was appointed
to the faculty at Penn in 1992 where she has remained rising to the rank
of full professor. She has served as Director of the Flow Cytometry and
Cell Sorting Shared Resource since 1991.   She was appointed the first
director of the Clinical Flow Cytometry Laboratory at the Hospital of
the University of Pennsylvania and developed the first dedicated
clinical flow cytometry rotation in pathology residency training
programs.  Her early research focused on T cell function in chronic B
cell lymphomas however, more recently her research activities have
evolved along the path of technology development with a focus on complex
technologies, in particular on cytomics. 
Building on her experiences in both basic and translational research,
she has led the effort at Penn to bring technologies from the newly
developing field of cytomics to investigators in diverse disciplines
across the campus. This effort has resulted in the development of the
largest and most comprehensive academic flow cytometry research resource
laboratory in the United States. Being in the unique position of
directing both a clinical and research flow cytometry laboratory, she
has focused on movement of novel translational assays to the clinical
lab, developing new flow cytometric tests in the areas of toxicology,
hematology and cardiology. She has served on several committees of the
Clinical Cytometry Society and the International Society for the
Advancement of Cytometry and on the editorial board of Cytometry B, and
has been a consultant for several academic and commercial laboratories.
