10th Annual UC Davis flow cytometry training course
Dates: Monday to Friday, July 22 to July 26, 2013
Locations: Genome Center and Tupper Hall, UC Davis campus
The University of California Davis is offering its 10th annual comprehensive flow cytometry training course. This course offers a comprehensive and affordable instruction in flow cytometry principles and best practices, supplemented with afternoon laboratory sessions that use a variety of cytometers to highlight specific applications and concepts. Special guest speakers will supplement the curriculum, introducing cutting edge applications, novel reagents and exploring flow cytometry history and instrumentation theory.
The course is designed to teach academic researchers, graduate students, staff scientists, industry professionals and principal investigators what flow cytometry is, how flow cytometers work and how to run one, how best to design experiments for the flow cytometer, and what's next in the field of cytometry. Registration is open to all, with registration fees ranging from $850-$1,100 for the entire week, including lunch each day and an optional "dinner with the instructors."
