The International Flow Cytometry School has emerged from a collaboration between the Deutsches Rheuma-Forschungszentrum Berlin (DRFZ), the Department of Internal Medicine University of Florence (DMI), and the Technical University Munich (TUM) and Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS).
The aim of the Cytometry School is to give an update of recent flow-cytometry applications, with particular emphasis on antigen specific T and B cell cytometry. The School is not addressing beginners, it is not a basic cytometry course. The School will mainly consist of practical work, under the supervision of internationally renowned tutors.
The course will take place at:
Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS), Medical Research Building, University of Sussex, Brighton BN1 9PS.
Only 30 students will be selected, based on their experience and the applicability of these technologies to their research. The submission forms, available online, will be accepted from 01st April 2009 to 30th June 2009. Those selected will be notified before 15th July 2009. The registration fee will be 600.00 GBP.
