An update on the European Cytometry Network Meeting

As posted below, with the aim to create a network of European Cytometrists, next 28th and 29th of February a meeting will be held in Heidelberg, Germany. Now, there are more details concerning the meeting, particularly, the preliminary programme and the registration procedure (by the way, the deadline for registration was extended until the 3rd of February). Head to the meeting webpage at the EMBL facility for this and more information.

New year, new life

Dear colleagues,

This new year brought me an almost new life, as I am since last week connected with the Department of Botany of the Charles University in Prague (Czech Republic) and with the Laboratory of Flow Cytometry of the Institute of Botany in Pruhonice, where I will continue my studies (Post-Doc). I left many nice friends and colleagues in the Department of Biology of the University of Aveiro (Portugal) but it was time to move on, and the Czech Republic, especially the group of Jan Suda, is the best place to progress with my scientific career.

I am really excited with this new phase, but I am still adapting to the nice Czech culture, especially to its difficult language and cold temperatures, and to different flow cytometers.

I will try to keep the blog updated, and new ideas for it are welcome. Please post them in the comments to this post.

The best wishes for 2008.

João Loureiro
