Dr. Osborne, G.

Geoffrey Osborne holds a B.Sc. from The Australian National University (1993) and an Associate Diploma in Applied Biology from the Queensland University of Technology (1983). From 1986 to 1999, he was at The John Curtin School of Medical Research, The Australian National University, where he was head of the large flow cytometry core facility. In 2000, he established and managed the flow cytometry core facility at The Biomedical Research Institute, The University of British Columbia, Canada. In 2004, he accepted a position as Director of Flow Cytometry for The Queensland Brain Institute/Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology, The University of Queensland. Most of his work focuses on developing assays involving flow cytometry in a research setting. In recent years these efforts have been focused on bringing flow cytometry to the neurosciences, with a particular interest in identification and sorting of neural stem cells, the characterization of cells from brain tumors and screening applications.
