Benelux Mass Cytometry User Group Meeting

November 4–5, 2019 | Leiden, The Netherlands

Please join us for our first Benelux Mass Cytometry User Group Meeting!

We are delighted to host our first Mass Cytometry User Group Meeting (UGM) for the Benelux region at Leiden University Medical Center on November 4–5, 2019.

We will bring together our growing community of mass cytometry customers in the region so you can share in your discoveries and best practices using CyTOF® technology. The agenda will cover a wide range of topics in both basic research and translational applications as well as a back-to-basics section for those just getting started.

We will also include a breakout session on Day 2 for core facility managers.

And be sure to join us for our social evening on Monday, November 4, where you can relax and chat with your colleagues and friends!

Check out our agenda and register now to guarantee your seat!

We look forward to seeing you in Leiden!

A light breakfast, coffee breaks and lunch will be provided on both days.
Registration is free, but space is limited.
