Kurs: Neuere Methoden der Zellanalytik (Schwerpunkt Flowzytometrie) @ Biozentrum Würzburg
Apr 3 – Apr 6 all-day

Der Kurs stellt primär das Verständnis methodischer und wissenschaftlicher Denkweise und experimenteller Ansätze am Beispiel der molekularen, genetischen und physiologischen Zellanalytik mittels FACS dar. Dies wird vermittelt in Vorlesungen und ausgewählten computeranimierten Fallbeispielen (Tutorials) aus Hauptanwendungsbereichen der FACS-Technik. Dabei werden die Möglichkeiten und Limitationen sowohl der technischen als auch der biologischen Verfahren und Modellsysteme erörtert. Der Kurs ist geeignet für Masterstudenten der Naturwissenschaften und Medizinstudenten im Hauptstudium, wie Doktoranden und PostDocs. Erste Erfahrungen mit FACS Geräten ist von Vorteil. Die Präsentationen sind in Englisch, die Vorlesungssprache ist Deutsch.

CYTO2018, Prague, Czech Republic @ Prague Congress Centre
Apr 28 – May 2 all-day

For nearly 40 years, top scientists have attended CYTO, ISAC’s annual congress, to explore the most recent developments in flow and image cytometry, advanced microscopy, data evaluation, fluorescent reagents and more, enabling a greater understanding of basic molecular mechanisms and human disease.

In 2018, CYTO will be hosted by the great city of Prague, Czech Republic. With more than seven million people visiting the city last year, it has been recognized as a leading international tourist destination. Join us at CYTO 2018 on April 28 – May 2, 2018 and find out for yourself why Prague is one of the world’s favorite cities, and why CYTO is the one event you can’t miss to learn about the latest advances in the science and technology of cytometry!

CYTO 2018 is being developed through the efforts of the Organizing Committee, as well as the ISAC Marylou Ingram Scholars and Shared Resource Lab (SRL) Emerging Leaders, who propose themes, speakers, and assist with the review of abstracts.

CYTO 2018 will include elements for scientists working in all areas of cytometry and at all career stages. Top faculty and leaders in the industry will contribute their time and talent to CYTO Innovation, State of the Art Lectures, Scientific Tutorials, Workshops, Frontiers, and Plenary Sessions featuring cutting edge cytometry technology and applications.

The program will also include Parallel Sessions with examples of contemporary cytometry from the research lab to the clinic, and Poster Sessions providing an opportunity for discussions between authors and delegates. Additionally, the Congress will include Commercial Exhibits featuring companies displaying hardware, software, and reagents for cytometry research.

Please check the official CYTO 2018 website in the coming weeks and months for program details.

CYTO 2018 will be held at the Prague Congress Centre, which is conveniently located on Line C of the city’s underground railway network, allowing attendees easy access to and from the airport and the historic downtown. Visit​ for more information about “The City of a Thousand Spires”.

We proudly recognize that CYTO is the premier meeting for showcasing the state of the art and science of cytometry and look forward to seeing you in Prague!

CTLS 2018 Congress @ Ghent, Belgium
Jul 1 – Jul 4 all-day


CTLS2018@VIB will be held July 1-4th, 2018 in the beautiful and historic city of Ghent. Settled as far back as the Iron Age at the confluence of the Scheldt and Leie rivers, the current city dates from the founding of Saint Bavo’s abbey in 650 by Saint Amand (patron saint of brewers). For the conference CTLS will use the University of Ghent’s congress center, Het Pand. The facility is housed in a former Dominican abbey dating to the 13th century. It can hold up to 400 participants and despite its complete modernization retains its medieval charm.

Over the 4 days of the conference there will be plenary and parallel sessions focusing on core facility operations, management and specific technologies of interest to facility staff. Keynote talks will be given by 2001 Nobel laureate Sir Paul Nurse, and ABRF Past President Frances Weis-Garcia. Poster sessions will be held to allow core scientists to present new developments in their technologies and a core facility marketplace area will also be available for facilities to promote their expertise and services. A Belgian beer tasting, guided boat trip through the city’s canals and conference dinner at the old fish market will highlight the social program.

CTLS2018@VIB aims to offer core facility staff and those interested in careers as expert scientists an opportunity to learn, network and forge alliances to strengthen core facility science throughout Europe.

About the conference

The field of cytometry – the study of single cells – is developing rapidly and is applied in almost every scientific discipline from basic to applied research and ultimately the patient bed side. Scientific progress in this very broad field demands quick and thorough communication of novel applications and findings based on improvements in the various technology branches and their use in scientific studies. We want to specifically foster communication across Europe and disciplines by holding a pan-European meeting focusing on science and technology in the field of cytometry, exemplifying the tremendous advances in image cytometry, mass-cytometry, single-cell metabolomics, and classical flow cytometry in combination with high-end sequencing methods. This meeting will attract a broad audience of scientists, technology providers and facilitators from predominately European institutes. It will provide a unique opportunity for junior researchers and technology experts in Europe to interact with the leading figures in this field, especially from the Bio-IT community, highlighting that Europe is a vivid and powerful contributor to cytometry technology development.

40% of all available presentation slots will be given to early stage researchers to promote visibility and to present ongoing research from a different perspective.
