flowcytometryUK One Day Meeting 2017
Scientific Organisers: Derek Davies, Francis Crick Institute and Rachael Walker, Babraham Institute, Cambridge
flowcytometryUK 2017 will be a one-day meeting in London 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 and the meeting also afford 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.

Prior to running the flow cytometry core at the MRC-LMB, Maria worked in several academic and non-academic institutes including GlaxoSmithKline in Stevenage, and the Immune Tolerance Network in Miami.
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.
Queen Mary University of London
LGC Group, Teddington
Tamara received her PhD from Tbilisi State University, Georgia (Biochemistry). Later she was awarded with the NATO scholarship and continued her research at NTNU (Norway) in neurobiology group. After two dynamic post-doctoral positions at the University of Bath (Prion disease research group) and University of Birmingham (Breast Cancer research group), Tamara joined LGC were she is a certified flow cytometry specialist within the cell biology team.
Dr Stephen Richardson
University of Manchester
Stephen is a Senior Lecturer in Cell and Tissue Engineering at The University of Manchester. His research focusses on the development of stem cell-based regenerative medicine therapies for repair of orthopaedic tissues, particularly the intervertebral disc. To achieve this his work also investigates intervertebral disc development, the pathophysiological changes occurring during disease or ageing and the elucidation of molecular phenotype using –omics approaches.

Cairn is an Independent research-orientated company specialising in microscopy solutions for the life sciences. From our origins as a provider of turnkey optical systems for fast intracellular ion measurements we have maintained close links with our academic customer base enabling us to develop a broad range of products and solutions to meet their expanding needs. Our strength lies in our understanding of both the requirements of the research microscopy community and of the advances in technology from which they can benefit. We have a “can do”, informal, and friendly attitude and are always willing to give advice. The company has evolved organically to encompass four distinct, but interrelated areas.
We are instrument designers, manufacturers and vendors of both Illumination and Detection products. Our illumination products encompass a wide range of light sources, adapters and specialist launch systems; typically used in conjunction with a third-party, or Cairn-built, microscope or macrosope. On the detection side our primary focus is on multi-channel imaging using one or more third-party cameras. These products are largely based around optical techniques, most importantly, fluorescence, optogenetics, photolysis and transmitted light imaging. Although fully independent we are closely allied with Chroma Technology and a large number of our illumination and detection products make use of their high performance interference filters.
