Steven Lim

Flow Cytometrist


Steven is a new member of the AMREPFlow core cytometry facility.

He successfully completed his BSc Honours and then went on to work as an RA where he investigated the mechanisms of Haemophilus influenzae infection in the context of respiratory disease, before stepping into the world of cytometry. Steven brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience, which he has acquired whilst working as a flow cytometrist in laboratories based in Australia and overseas.

Steven has recently returned from the UK, where he was fortunate enough to work in a busy and growing core facility. His time in London granted him access to new and emerging technologies and data analysis techniques, which he hopes to share with flow cytometry users within the AMREPFlow precinct.
