Following the success of the inaugural scientific meeting which was held in Cambridge in 2007 flowcytometryUK holds its second National meeting between 15th and 17th July 2009 at Keble College, Oxford. The conference will highlight advances in flow and image instrumentation, high content screening, cancer and stem cell biology, applications of clinical cytometry and the development of novel probes and approaches in many areas of biomedical research. Confirmed plenary speakers include Ger van den Engh (Seattle, USA), Paul Smith (Cardiff, UK), David Hedley (Ontario, Canada), Bill Telford (NIH, USA) and Austin Smith (Cambridge, UK). Delegates from clinical, research and industrial fields are invited to submit both oral and poster abstracts for presentation at the meeting that will attract more than 200 delegates. There will be a large commercial exhibition as well a session devoted to commercial tutorials where delegates can be updated on recent advances in the field.
This meeting should prove an exciting event and an excellent opportunity for all to interact and share work with colleagues in related fields as well as gain awareness of other technologies and methodologies. A conference banquet will be held in Keble College’s Great Hall which will enable delegates to mix informally outside the scientific sessions. Accommodation will be available onsite to all delegates.
