6th Annual Mass Cytometry Summit

Friday, June 9, 2017 | 8:30 am–7:00 pm | The Museum of Science, Boston, MA

Researchers around the world are powering new breakthroughs in health and disease using mass cytometry, resulting in over 70 peer-reviewed publications in 2016 alone.

Join us the day before CYTO® 2017 for presentations by some of these scientists, who will share how mass cytometry brought them new insights and advanced their basic and translational research. Learn about the latest scientific methods, best practices, new applications and reagents. Network with colleagues and make new connections.
