The 46th Annual Course in Flow Cytometry is coming to San Diego this summer! This highly regarded event is a week-long course that combines lectures and hands-on lab sessions. Students are paired with experienced instructors in small groups to prepare samples with sponsor-provided reagents and acquire data using cytometers supplied by instrument vendors.
The course attracts highly motivated participants from both academia and industry that use flow cytometry in their day-to-day work. Many of the students will become lab directors and key opinion leaders and make instrument and reagent purchase decisions as their careers progress. There is a good chance that someone on your team has attended this course in the past! This is an outstanding opportunity to expose these budding cytometrists to your products and brand.
This year’s course is organized by Cheryl Kim from La Jolla Institute, Carina Torres from Eli Lilly, and Yoav Altman from Sanford Burnham Prebys. The course will be held at Sanford Burnham Prebys, August 12-17, 2023. Our schedule will closely follow the successful format of previous years.
The course requires instrumentation, a variety of reagents, and supplies to provide participants with hands-on wet lab experience. Corporate sponsorship plays a vital role in ensuring the affordability of the course for attendees and providing state of the art tools.
