Scotland and Northern England Flow Meeting: Multi-colour multi-species flow cytometry

  • 24 September 2012
  • 10 - 4 pm
  • Moredun Research Institute

This will be a very diverse meeting, with a training component as well as scientific talks. During the meeting we will also discuss the possibility to establish a new Scotland and Northern England Flow Cytometry group, which could meet on a regular basis and offer a forum for discussion, training and exchange of information to all involved in flow cytometry in the area.

Everybody is invited to attend and the meeting is free, but for organisation and catering purposes you are asked to register your attendance e-mailing Mara Rocchi at the Moredun (Mara.rocchi@moredun.ac.uk). Registration will close on the 17th of September.
