Flow Cytometry Facilities Meeting 2018
Organisers: Fredrik Wallberg (ICR) and Ian Titley (ICR)
This inaugural flow cytometry facilities meeting is aimed at those managing or working in flow cytometry facilities. The meeting will be held in University of York. The sessions will be varied and based around ideas such as how core facilities interact with their institution, high-throughput and high dimensional techniques for data production, software approaches to deal with high dimensional data. Presentations will be given from those working in or using core facilities and our industry colleagues. There will be ample time in the programme for discussion and networking with participants.

Mr Derek Davies
Flow Cytometry Section Chair
Francis Crick Institute
Derek runs a large flow cytometry core facility at Cancer Research UK’s London Research Institute which covers all aspects of cell analysis and sorting. He co-organises the section’s annual flow cytometry course at the University of York and is active in promotion of cytometry via focussed meetings and other courses. He is one of the principal organisers of the flowcytometryUK biennial meeting and also the Advances in Cytometry Meeting. Derek is particularly keen to promote cytometry education within the UK and beyond
Dr Richard Grenfell
Flow Cytometry Section Vice-Chair
Cancer Research UK
After studying Chemistry at Salford University, Richard worked in the oligonucleotide synthesis group at the MRC’s Laboratory of Molecular Biology, before changing direction and running the flow cytometry equipment for the LMB for 8 years. Moving to Cancer Research UK, Richard runs the Flow Cytometry core facility at the Cancer Research UK, Cambridge Institute, at Cambridge University. Richard is involved with local, national and international cytometry groups.
Dr Karen Hogg
Karen is currently a Senior Experimental Officer at the University of York, Bioscience Technology Facility. Karen underpins the scientific service within the Imaging and Cytometry Laboratory and takes a lead role in the research, operation and method development of cell sorting and analysis. As such, Karen’s expertise is utilized for a wide range of diverse applications both within and external to the Department of Biology. Karen is also a co-organizer and tutor on multiple flow cytometry courses throughout the UK. She got her BSc, Joint Honours in Biology and Biochemistry at Keele University, U.K. 1991-1995; then obtained her MSc in Applied Parasitology & Medical Entomology from the University of Liverpool, U.K. 1995-1996; then proceeded to obtain her Phd. from the School of Biology, University of Leeds, U.K. 1996-1999
Dr Robert Jepras
Mr Ricardo Morilla
Royal Marsden Hospital
Ricardo Morilla is a Clinical Scientist and the Head of Immunophenotyping. The laboratory is part of the Haemato-Oncology Section for the integrated study of leukaemia and lymphoma.
He runs a flow cytometry diagnostic service which is strongly involved in the practice and teaching of haemato-ocology diagnosis, including many applications into clinical diagnostics such as cell immunophenotyping, stem cell transplantation, PNH and minimal residual disease detection. Ricardo is a member of the MIG UK group which is a national group working on the multicolour immunophenotyping guidelines for the UK. He participates as a lecturer in the Royal Microscopical Society’s courses and meetings. He also organises an annual meeting on the Laboratory Diagnosis of Haemato-Oncology disorders. His main research interest is the multiparameter analysis of the leukaemic cells. He is enthusiastic to work in the RMS with other experts in the field to promote and disseminate flow cytometry knowledge and skills at many levels and to encourage national and international networking.
Dr Peter O'Toole
University of York
Peter O'Toole heads the Imaging and Cytometry Labs within the Technology Facility at the University of York which includes an array of confocal microscopes, flow cytometers and electron microscopes. Peter gained his PhD in the Cell Biophysics Laboratory at the University of Essex and has been involved in many aspects of fluorescence imaging. Research is currently focused on both technology and method development of novel probes and imaging modalities. He has ongoing collaborations with many leading microscopy and cytometry companies and his group also provides research support to many academics and commercial organisations. Peter is also heavily involved with teaching microscopy and flow cytometry which includes organising and teaching on both the RMS Light Microscopy Summer School and the RMS Practical Flow Cytometry courses.
Dr Fredrik Wallberg DipRMS
Fredrik runs the flow Cytometry Facility at the Chelsea campus of Institute of Cancer Research. He has been the manager since 2006. He is also involved in time lapse microscopy, confocal microscopy and high content microscopy. Before he joined the Institute of cancer research he worked both in Sweden and the Netherlands with flow Cytometry. He has succesfully completed the RMS Diploma in which his project focussed on cell death and time lapse microscopy.
