Advanced course on Applications in Flow cytometry

Flow cytometry is used by many different applications from phenotypical characterization of cell sub-populations, analysis of phosphorylated proteins, cell proliferation, cell death to detection of very rare cell sub-populations. However, each of these methods has its challenges. This course gives users with a solid knowledge in flow cytometry the opportunity to attend lectures covering many of these applications. Newcomers to flow cytometry are advised to follow first the introductory flow cytometry course.
These lectures are given by experienced users and therefore not only give an introduction into these applications but also suggest protocols, discuss challenges and solutions.  Participants have the opportunity to discuss questions and, most importantly, have a contact person if they want to use an application for their own research.

Day 1:
Introduction: best practice in flow cytometry
Multicolor flow cytometry

Day 2:
Proliferation and cell cycle analysis; Valentina Casa

Day 3:
Data analysis and software packages

Day 4:
Rare events
Cell signaling

Day 5:
Cell sorting
Clinical applications

General information
Financial regulation of the Postgraduate School MolMed, from January 1st 2021, the following financial rules apply, but they may differ per course still. Look at the course fee of each course to be sure which discounts are really applied:
• Non-commercial course, symposium or workshop fee: €200/day, €750/week
• Participants of the postgraduate school MolMed: discount of 100%
• However, the Personal Leadership course and the workshops Photoshop/Illustrator/Indesign have to be paid from the ‘personal budget’ of employees, MolMed members and PhD students included. So they will receive an invoice from us which you have to pay and which will be reimbursed by your Department. When you will pay from your personal budget you need to provide us your home address details for the invoice. 
If there is no personal budget left, the MM-members get a discount of 100%.
• PhD students and Master’s students, regardless of institution: discount of 50%.
•The course fees of research master’s students will be paid by their master program at rate of €100/ECTS. For not I&I master students: please inform your master program in advance whether they agree to pay.
•Master’s students who are paying the fee from their private budget: discount of 75%. When you will pay from your personal budget you need to provide us your home address details for the invoice.
•However, 2 courses in statistics are paid centrally by the Dept. of Research policy for all PhD students from Erasmus MC! These are R and the SPSS course. So for Erasmus MC PhD students, these courses are always free, provided you are officially registered as a PhD student.
There is one fee for the entire course. There is no reduction for partial participation.
Commercial participants, companies & sponsors are invited to inquire about commercial tuition fees and about sponsoring.
All invoices will be sent by email to the mail address that you filled in upon registration. If this address is not correct we use your Erasmus MC address.
