I wanted to announce that registration is now open for our upcoming flow cytometry summer course- the course is very comprehensive with all day introductory training on Monday, then lectures every morning, and hands-on labs every afternoon.  We end with practical lectures on multicolor panel design on Friday.  We've p with FloCyte Associates to provide quality flow cytometry curricula, and special guest lecturers include Barbara Shacklett, Nicole Baumgarth,  Marty Bigos, Holden Maecker, and Nikesh Kotecha.   Labs include multiparameter immunophenotyping, BD CBA, Apoptosis, cell sorting, DNA Cell Cycle, and FlowJo and Flourish software instruction and more.  Details are below.  Hope to see you there!

Flow Cytometry Intensive Short Course

*July 25 -- 29th*

Flow Cytometry is a powerful tool in modern biology.  The applications are numerous, and have contributed to many fields including by virology, immunology, and molecular biology.  This course begins with introductory flow cytometry and progresses through development and design of multicolor panels.  Afternoon sessions will include hands-on training in applications and training on various instruments.   Students will choose six of ten labs:

Cytomation MoFlo cell sorting lab
Becton Dickinson Cytokine Bead Array Lab
Miltenyi MACSQuant flow cytometer (application TBA)
Compucyte iCys laser scanning cytometer/confocal microscope immunophenotyping lab
Amnis imaging lab
Guava lab applications including MitoQuant T Cell Mitodamage and Chemokine Receptor Quantitation
FlowJo analysis and Flourish multicolor panel design lab
Sony Eclipse (application TBA)
Beckman Coulter lab (application TBA)
Stratedigm (application TBA)
