University of New Mexico, June 24-30, 2017
A research methods course in flow cytometry will be offered with emphasis on applications in cell biology, immunology, cell labeling,
fluorescent protein analysis, bead-based assays, screening and sorting.
The faculty consists of over 20 distinguished members of the flow cytometry community. This course will be aimed toward individuals with
some experience in flow cytometry, and will consist of 19 lectures and a series of hands-on laboratory sessions. Each participant will receive
extensive lecture notes and laboratory handout materials. Laboratory sessions will address sample preparation, instrument construction and operation,
data collection and analysis, common and more cutting edge flow assays, and typical problems encountered in flow cytometry. Lab sessions will be hands-on,
with plenty of time and opportunity for interaction with the instructors. Lab sessions will utilize a large variety of commercial and developmental instruments.
Each participant will attend six different 4-hour laboratory sessions, chosen from 13 different offerings. During one evening session representatives
from several commercial vendors will be available to demonstrate and discuss their most recent instruments and techniques. A second evening session will
feature short presentations on next-generation flow cytometers and applications. One afternoon and evening will be free for participants to enjoy the many
regional attractions of northern New Mexico, and the last evening includes a banquet with live entertainment at the world-famous El Pinto Restaurant
(www.elpinto.com). Registration fees include lectures, 6 laboratory sessions, course materials, breakfast and lunch each day, coffee breaks with snacks,
refreshments at two evening sessions and the banquet. And a group picture you can show your friends and colleagues, as well as your appearance in
engaging pics of the course.
