Flow Cytometry

M7

Course Goals 

The course will comprise lectures of experts in the field presenting methods for assessing the immune response in human and animal models. In particular, it will be focused on combined staining of surface markers and intracellular markers (cytokines and degranulation markers), allowing the characterization of activation, differentiation and functionality of lymphoid and myeloid cells. It will include approaches to master multi-dimensional flow cytometry from the basic theory to data analysis, and biological interpretation of the results.
