3rd German Mass Cytometry User Forum
Save the date: January 23-24, 2020
it is my pleasure to announce the 3rd German Mass Cytometry User Forum to be held on January 23rd/24th 2020, at the Karl-Storz Visitor and Training Centre, located in the heart of Berlin.
Based on the success of past years, we will continue to offer a 2-day program featuring talks from invited experts in the field, shorter abstract presentations, workshops on computational data analysis and mass cytometry-related benchwork, and a get together including the scientific poster session.
More details about the program will be announced here soon.
Best wishes from the DRFZ,

2nd German Mass Cytometry User Forum in retrospect
The 2nd German Mass Cytometry User Forum held on January 24th – 25th 2019 in Berlin was a great success. The Forum was organized by the German Mass Cytometry Network, GerMaNet in collaboration with the German Rheumatism Research Center Berlin, a Leibniz-Institute, to link mass cytometry laboratories in Berlin, Munich, Ulm, Cologne, and Dresden, to further promote networking and exchange within the mass cytometry community in and around Germany.
With more than 100 visitors – experts and novices in mass cytometry – from Germany and ten other countries, the German Mass Cytometry User Forum has established itself as the leading hub for mass cytometry topics in Germany with international impact.
Invited speakers, workshops and abstracts covered mass cytometry technology & reagents, different areas of biomedical research, experimental setup and controls, and computational data mining and visualization.
We applaud the winner of this years’ poster prize, Camila Fernández-Zapata (Priller Lab, Charité Berlin) for her contribution on “High-dimensional single-cell profiling of PBMCs in early MS using multiplexed mass cytometry”.
We want to thank all speakers, industry and participants for making this a wonderful and memorable event.
We look forward to the next German Mass Cytometry User Forum in 2020. Stay tuned!
