Dr. Wulfkuhle has more than 10 years of experience in human tissue processing and preparation for Laser Capture Microdissection and in the field of functional signal pathway profiling of human cells and tissues using Reverse Phase Protein Microarray ( RPMA ) technology. She has contributed to methods development for sample preparation, printing, staining, image capture and analysis and has also been involved in the establishment of a set of reference standards and calibrators for RPMAs that will be used in the transition of this technology into a calibrated assay that can be used for standardization and quantification of staining intensities across arrays and between experiments. Dr. Wulfkuhle’s research interests include proteomic profiling of solid tumor tissues, including breast, prostate, lung and brain, for designing personalized therapeutic strategies, and identification of signaling mechanisms underlying resistance to targeted therapeutics.
