The Irish Cytometry Society (ICyS) is delighted to announce the 2012 Annual Meeting of the Irish Cytometry Society, now in its 8th year. As in previous years, this year’s meeting will serve as a joint meeting for flow cytometry, high content screening, microscopy and related technologies.

This will be a two day event held in the conference centre, at NUI Galway, one of Irelands foremost centre’s of academic excellence.

The conference will be split into four sessions based around:

  • Stem cell biology
  • Immunology and clinical cytometry
  • Cell cycle and cell proliferation studies
  • Advanced applications, including marine, food and mass cytometry

As in previous years we have lined up an exceptional international and Irish based keynote speaker list, in addition to oral and poster presentations from selected clinical and life science researchers. Please CLICK HERE  for the most recent version of ICyS 2012 program.

Following the conference, there will be two one day Flocyte flow cytometry training courses, Nov 8-9, at NUI Galway. Further information on the courses and registration can be found here.

Conference and NUI Galway

This is the first time that the annual meeting of the ICyS will be held outside Dublin. We are delighted to locate the meeting in Galway, the cultural capital of the West of Ireland. In addition to a centre of culture, Galway is a vibrant  hub for academic, research and bioengineering based activities.

The venue is the multipurpose Bailey Allen Hall located on the main NUI Galway campus and 10 minutes from Galway city centre.

ICyS 2012 presents a great opportunity to keep abreast of advancements in flow cytometry and cell imaging technologies, to liaise with colleagues, as well as interact with reagent and instrumentation vendors.

We encourage all those who work in cytometry and related technologies, both based in Ireland and overseas, to join us in Galway and we are looking forward to another successful meeting.
