After a successful and inspring 1st German Mass Cytometry User Forum, we are pleased to announce the 2nd German Mass Cytometry User Forum on January 24/25th 2019 in Berlin.

The two-day program will feature scientists covering different applications of mass cytometry, data analysis, discussion impulses from selected abstracts, and a scientific poster show.

Two workshops on computational data analysis and CyTOF-related benchwork, and a socializing evening will round up the program.
