Life Science and Engineering Flow Cytometry Symposium Tuesday, March 7, 2017


cytometry symposium

The Life Science and Engineering (LS&E) Infrastructure Center is happy to invite you to a special symposium on flow cytometry on  Tuesday, March 7, 2017.

The symposium will be held in the Auditorium of Faculty of Biotechnology and Food Engineering.

On this one day event we will introduce the basics of flow cytometry and how it applies to various research areas.

Selected talks by researchers from different faculties at the Technion,

whose work will give you a taste of what can be achieved at our LS&E Flow Cytometry Unit, will be presented.
