Want to learn about Flow Cytometry?

Want to see what’s new in the field?

Want to find out about research and facilities within the MI Universities?

Then come along to the Free MI Flow Cytometry Meeting 2023!

This will be an in-person one day conference bringing together academics, local biotech and instrument manufacturers to discuss all things flow cytometry, imaging flow cytometry, mass cytometry and full spectrum flow cytometry. Come along to learn about the technology, hear something new in the field or attend one of the educational workshops.

If you are from one of the Midlands Innovation Universities there will be free transport provided from your University to the event.

Call for oral and poster presentations:

Deadline extended to 21st of February 2023.

PhD Students and Post-Docs: Submit a title and abstract (250 word max, no figures) to

Prizes to be won! £100, £50, £25 for top three oral and poster presentations!

Early career researchers submit a title and abstract for a 10 minute oral presentation from to highlight your research that makes use of flow cytometry. Or submit a title and abstract for poster presentation.
