Recently, great technological improvements have been performed in
multiparameter flow cytometry (MFC) to study complex biological systems.
However, the difficulty of implementing MFC is a real barrier limiting its broad
use. Similarly, knowledge is often lacking, in advanced analytical tools and
methods needed to handle the mass of information generated by MFC. An
emerging innovating technology, the multiparameter mass cytometry (MMC)
allows the simultaneous analysis of more than 40 parameters. This new
technology (also referred to as CyTOF) faces similar challenges in analysis
and data visualization as MFC.
Therefore, the formation into the laboratories is crucial to control all aspects of
multiparametric approaches that will be addressed during this workshop.
To fulfill these goals, MFC and MMC technologies will be introduced by experts
of each experimental field and illustrated using concrete examples of
applications in clinical research. These presentations will be completed by an
introduction to current software solutions in order to analyze huge datasets
generated by these two approaches. Finally, emerging technologies will be
presented, mainly in the field of image cytometry.
All biological scientists, engineers, medical doctors, post-doctoral fellows and
students who are interested in the application of advanced cytometry
techniques in their respective experimental fields and are eager to increase the
number of parameters studied simultaneously. A basic knowledge in
conventional flow cytometry (4-6 parameters) is required.
Lectures will be given in English.
