This is a very good practical course that may interes some of you.

Flow Cytometry Course 2023

This Flow Cytometry Course is aimed at both clinical applications and applications in cell biology and is open to all and is suitable for those who are relatively new to flow cytometry and who wish to expand their experience with applications and specific analysis.

Cytek has arranged a meeting at Panum Institute about “Best practices in imaging & full spectrum cytometry”, May 10th at 9.00-16.00.

The full program and link to sign up for the event is here:

Any questions about the meeting should be addressed to Cytek, Thomas Franzen – tfranzen at or Mikael Mikko – mmikko at

The annual meeting in the society will be May 3rd in Copenhagen. We start with General assembly and then proceed to the program with the theme “Functional Flow Cytometry Assays”.

We have an open PhD student position especially attractive to non-German students at the DRFZ in Berlin starting in summer 2023, and I would be grateful if you could forward  this announcement to potential candidates and circulate this in your networks. The project is to study imprints of mucosal immune reactions on blood leukocytes in different groups of autoimmune patients, with the aim to explore the utility of mucosal immune signatures for precision medicine, and to understand microbiota-immune system interactions implicated in chronic inflammation vs tolerance.

The position is funded for 3 years by the EU, through a Marie-Sklodowska-Curie Doctoral Network, and embedded in a range of related projects in the EU.

Further information on the network and the application process are provided in this links For project-specific questions, please reach out to Henrik Mei and Hyun-Dong Chang (,


The Autumn meeting in DSFCM will be November 3rd at Moesgård Museum We offer a short guided tour on the museum before we start the meeting. The program will be about spectral flow cytometry, we have invited several speakers to cover the subject, so save the date.
