About Hans Minderman


Dr. Hans Minderman joined the team of the Experimental Therapeutics Department at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center in 1990. He was named the Assistant Director, Flow and Image Cytometry Facility in 2007. He earned his doctoral degree in Medical Biology at the University Hospital Nijmegen, The Netherlands (1994).

He has authored or co-authored more than 90 journal publications, abstracts or book chapters.

The Flow and Image Cytometry Facility provides standard and advanced flow cytometry capabilities for research and clinical investigations at Roswell Park. It is a licensed reference laboratory for classification of leukemias and lymphomas by immunophenotyping, for evaluating immunologically-based diseases, for monitoring transplant patients, and for evaluating DNA in solid tumors. It is committed to translational research through the development of new tests. Standard and advanced flow and image cytometry services and capabilities also are provided to basic research scientists.
