The course aims at building regional capacity in flow cytometry, from the experimental designs to data acquisition and analysis. An intensive, hands-on training programme covering the various application of this technique will include lectures, tutorials and laboratory session. Participants will receive extensive lecture notes and laboratory handout material and protocols. 


  • To introduce young scientists on flow cytometry and cell sorting techniques by combining practical work with tutorial-style classroom sessions and top-quality lectures.
  • To train the students in sample preparation, instrument features/operation, and data collection.
  • To provide knowledge on strategies for exploiting data analysis with the different available software.
  • To bring together renowned lecturers and young researchers to discuss routine problems and the generation of innovative solutions in this technological area.

Invited speakers will include:

Cecilia Alonso - CURE, Rocha, Uruguay
Nicole Borth - BOKU, Wien, Austria
Marcelo Comini - IPMon, Montevideo, Uruguay
Andrew Filby - London Research Institute, Cancer Research, London, UK
Gustavo Folle - IIBCE, Montevideo, Uruguay
María Inés Goldaracena - BD Biosciences, Buenos Aires, Argentina
