Avian immunology flow cytometry workshop
Update from the organisers
We regret to inform you that the British Society for Immunology and our Comparative & Veterinary Immunology Group have decided to postpone this event 'Avian immunology flow cytometry workshop' which was due to take place on 3 April in Edinburgh due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19.
We have emailed all delegates who have registered for this meeting – please check your inbox for further information on what to do.
This has been a hard decision for us as our events programme is at the heart of what we do and the activities that we provide for our members. However, after carefully reviewing the situation, we have decided that the most responsible option for us is to limit travel and large group gatherings.
I’m sure that you share in both our and our Comparative & Veterinary Immunology Group's disappointment that we are unable to go ahead with this event on the planned date. We are currently looking into alternative options with a view to running the event at a later date. We have contacted all registered delegates directly but if you have any questions in the meantime, please email meetings [at] immunology [dot] org.
The first Avian Immunology Flow Cytometry Workshop will be held by the British Society for Immunology's Comparative & Veterinary Immunology Group (CVIG).
The workshop will demonstrate the progress being made in techniques of flow cytometry in the field of avian immunological research. There will be a number of expert speakers across the field of avian immunology to demonstrate current methodology used to study phenotype and function of avian immune cells. We hope to engage in a productive, highly interactive discussions concerning the successes, pitfalls and limitations to working on avian immune cells with limited reagents. These limitations are a common feature of those conducting research in comparative host species and therefore anyone interested in and/or has experience with flow cytometry are welcome. It is anticipated that the success of this workshop will lead to further workshops encompassing other animals of comparative interest in future CVIG meetings.
Registration is free for BSI members. Non-members who have not registered for CVIG's T cell biology meeting will need to pay a £10 fee. If you're a non-member who's already registered for the meeting, T [dot] Sheehan [at] immunology [dot] org (please email Tracey Sheehan) for a discount code.
