7th Annual Mass Cytometry Summit

Friday, April 27, 2018 | 8:00 am–8:00 pm | Prague


On April 27, 2018, the mass cytometry community will gather in Prague to share knowledge, network with colleagues and forge collaborations to further our understanding of the biological bases for health and disease.

Join us for a day of presentations on new scientific findings, CyTOF® technology applications, data analysis methods and advances in Imaging Mass Cytometry™ from top mass cytometry experts.

We’ll follow the Summit with a cocktail reception immediately afterward.
