8th Annual Fluidigm Mass Cytometry Summit

Please join us at the 8th Annual Fluidigm Mass Cytometry Summit

June 20−21, 2019
Pinnacle Hotel Harbourfront
Vancouver, BC, Canada

The Program

We are excited to be extending the Summit to a two-day format this year to provide additional time for more presentations, special-topic breakout sessions and networking.

Attendees will hear talks on new scientific findings from researchers using mass cytometry as well as advances in Imaging Mass Cytometry™ (IMC™) and CyTOF® applications.

New this year are two special-topic breakout sessions: a panel discussion for core directors and presentations and discussion on best practices from experts.

Registration is free but space is limited and filling up fast!

REGISTER

We strongly suggest that you book your room in Vancouver as soon as possible to avoid conflicts with two other Vancouver events: the NHL Entry Draft June 21−22, and CYTO® 2019, June 22−26.

Below is a listing of the current sessions, topics and confirmed speakers.
