One day flowcytometryUK Meeting 2019
Scientific Organisers: Derek Davies, Francis Crick Institute, Rachael Walker, Babraham Institute, Cambridge and Rebecca Roberts, Babraham Institute, Cambridge
The one day flowcytometryUK 2019 Meeting will take place in Cambridge highlighting the diverse areas in which cytometry is a vital resource. There will be scientific presentations from a number of speakers interspersed with commercial flash presentations. A commercial exhibition will allow delegates to see recent developments in the field. The meeting also offers a great opportunity to network with fellow cytometrists in a relaxed and informal environment.
This meeting was formerly known as the Advances in Cytometry Meeting.

New computational approaches for analysing ultra-high parameter flow cytometry data
Adrian Liston is Senior Group Leader at the Babraham Institute, Cambridge. His PhD research was on T cell tolerance and diabetes with Professor Chris Goodnow at the Australian National University, followed by post-doctoral research on regulatory T cell biology with Professor Sasha Rudensky at the University of Washington. From 2009-2018, Liston ran his independent laboratory and founded two core facilities, on flow cytometry and CrispR, at the VIB and the University of Leuven, in Belgium. In 2019, Liston relocated his research team to the Babraham Institute, in Cambridge, UK.
The Liston laboratory currently works on understanding the interaction between the immune system and the tissues. The laboratory has previously worked on autoimmune genetics, diabetes, primary immunodeficiencies, the thymus and regulatory T cells. Adrian Liston has been awarded the Francqui Chair, Eppendorf prize and two ERC grants, among other honours.

Juan Garcia Vallejo
Amsterdam University Medical Centre
Juan J. Garcia Vallejo was born and raised in Southern Spain, Juan developed a keen interest in Biomedical Research since an early age. Soon after he started his Medical studies, he joined the Department of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, and Immunology of the University of Malaga as an intern student and collaborated in multiple projects in the field of autologous blood transfusions. Upon completion of his medical degree, Juan moved to Amsterdam, to continue his career as a technology-minded immunologist with a strong interest in methodological developments for the the measurement of immune responses, as well as translational questions in the field of cancer immunology. Recently, Juan completed a healthcare-oriented MBA program with a capstone project on Core Facility Management. Next to his obligations as Associate Professor at the Department of Molecular Cell Biology & Immunology of the Amsterdam UMC – Location VUmc, he is also Scientific Director of the Microscopy and Cytometry Core Facility.
The 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.
Rachael is the Head of Flow Cytometry Core Facility at Babraham Institute, Cambridge. The core provides a service to Babraham Institute and biotech companies that are housed on the Babraham Research Campus. She is also very involved with the flow cytometry community, on a local, national and International level. Rachael is one of the principle organisers of the flowcytometryUK biennial meeting and also the Advances in Cytometry meeting.
Rachael has been awarded an ‘Emerging Leader ‘ scholarship from the International Society for the Advancement of Cytometry (ISAC).
Rebecca studied Biochemistry at the University of Southampton before completing her PhD in Molecular Biology from the University of Cardiff. Post-doc projects encompassing gene regulation in macrophages and analysis of apoptosis in cancer cell lines led her to an interest in flow cytometry. As a Flow Cytometry Specialist at the Babraham Institute Flow Cytometry Core Facility, she works on all aspects of cell sorting, analysis and training.

Venue and Travel
The one day flowcytometryUK Meeting 2019 will take place at the Babraham Institute, Cambridge Building, Babraham Research Campus, Babraham, Cambridge CB22 3AT. It is situated approximately 10 km south west of central Cambridge.
Plane: The nearest airport is London Stansted (35km south). There are direct rail links to Cambridge.
Train: We recommend Cambridge Station (9km north). Whittlesford Parkway (7km west) is also nearby but has fewer services. The King's Cross line runs through Cambridge and the Liverpool Street line runs through Whittlesford Parkway.
Bus: The Stagecoach 13(A/B/C) route runs approximately every 30 minutes from Cambridge and Hills Road (near Cambridge Station).
Car: It is approximately a 20 minute drive from the centre of Cambridge. Free onsite parking is available. Please note if you are driving you must come through the main gate on the A1307 and not through the old entrance via Babraham Village, which sat navs often direct cars to.
Taxi: A taxi from Cambridge or Cambridge Station will typically cost £20-£25.
Cycle: There is now a cycle route from Cambridge which takes about 40 minutes.
