Current position

Professor (Research), Immunity, Transplantation & Infection
Director, Human Immune Monitoring Center (HIMC)
School of Medicine, Stanford University, USA

Maecker is a Professor (Research) of Microbiology and Immunology at Stanford University.  His research group is focused on cellular immune responses to chronic pathogens and cancer, and the correlation of those responses with immune protection.

The group has published a number of papers on this topic, both independently and in collaboration with other groups, in systems such as CMV, HIV, tuberculosis, and cancer.

Maecker also directs the Human Immune Monitoring Center (HIMC), a Stanford core service laboratory, which performs standardized assays using flow cytometry, genomics, and immunoassay platforms.

Immunophenotyping and Intracellular Staining of Fixed Whole Blood for Mass Cytometry (CyTOF)
Authors:  Sangeeta Kowli and Holden Maecker, date: 09/05/2020, view: 4093, Q&A: 1
In this report, we present the implementation of mass cytometry for intracellular staining using fixed whole blood. In our assay described here, 250 µl of whole blood, is stimulated in vitro with PMA/ionomycin (or left unstimulated), in the ...
Protein- and Sequencing-based Massively Parallel Single-cell Approaches to Gene Expression Profiling
