The 2nd FLxFlow Course covered the fundamentals of flow cytometry technology and built up the knowledge of the attendees through a series of lectures, exercises, practical examples and interactive learning. The course was designed to ensure that the attendees were confident to design, carry out, analyse and present their flow cytometry data. It consisted of three modules: basic, advanced and hands-on.
The 1st FLxFlow course introduced the basic principles and applications of flow cytometry to beginners. From fluorophores and panel design, instruments operation, required controls and statistical analysis to data publication and potential applications. The course consisted of theoretical talks and practical sessions with remote teaching where students learned how to set up an experiment, run a multi-color experiment, perform compensation and analyze data. There were also practical hands-on sessions in immunophenotyping, cell cycle, cell death & apoptosis and imaging flow cytometry.
The Champalimaud Foundation Flow Cytometry Platform is co-organizing with IGC, iMM and CEDOC the third edition of the FLxFlow Course: Principles and Applications of Flow Cytometry. This year and due to the pandemic situation, the course will be online through videoconference platform.
This course will cover basic and advanced cytometry topics and comprise lectures taught by national and international experts in the field. This will be an international course that last editions receive over 200 participants from Portuguese and foreign academic and non-academic institutions.
