Hello NECyto community! October 27 is fast approaching, I hope everyone is as excited as we are. This year’s meeting will return to the Ragon Institute Schwartz Auditorium at 400 Technology Square, with a vendor fair in the atrium of Buildings 100/200 just across the street. Register using this link:
As usual, we will start with breakfast at 8, with talks starting at 9, and then lunch and an afternoon break. We are pleased to offer a stellar lineup of speakers this year, and are planning something a little different for the meeting, but something we should all be used to at this point–we have decided to feature a remote presenter.
Titles to come, but our speakers and topics will be:
Jonathan Herman, Ragon Institute: Systems serology in Malaria
Virginia Camacho, Boston Childrens Hospital: Tregs in myeloid leukemia
Fabienne Lucas and Drew Williamson, BWH: Machine learning in pathology
Charlotte Graham, MGH: Clinical CAR-T cell assays
Diether Recktenwald, : History of Flow
Our final presentation slot will be dedicated to an open forum for the community to share their ideas on what the NECyto user group can do to best serve the community. We will be asking for members of the community to help out, whether its organizing/posting the monthly happy hours, or finding host sites for periodic seminars. If you’d like to complete our survey, the link is:
We will also remember Howard Shapiro, whose absence from the meeting will be sorely felt, and his distinctive closing remarks will be missed. But as he would insist, the FLOW must go on, so we will take the lessons he taught us to do bigger and better science!
We hope you will join us!
