Discovering Cell Biology: a Basic Course in Cell Culture Handling and Cell Viability Assays


IMPORTANT NOTICE: The first session is sold out.
There are still a few available places in the second session.


This summer school is a full-immersion workshop on cell culture techniques for both adherent and suspension cell lines with particular emphasis on cell viability assays.

In the workshop, schematic theoretical lectures will be given to introduce to the assay protocols and to plan the experimental part that will be hosted in cell biology laboratories.

Students, divided in small groups, will directly execute the experiments under the supervision of a teacher.

This summer school will be repeated in two sessions: 15-18 July, 2024 and 22-25 July, 2024. In both cases the registration deadline is 15 May 2024. A special discount corresponding to the amount of the didactic material will be given for early registration by 15 March 2024.

Aim

The aim of the Summer School is to introduce students to cell cultivation and basic assays for cell viability to be used in cell biology, pharmacology and toxicology fields. In particular, most assays will be carried out by means of flow cytometry, allowing the students to become familiar with this versatile technology.

Who can apply

Undergraduate and early graduated students in biological/pharmacological/veterinary discipline.

Postgraduate students as well as junior and senior researchers who intend to take their first steps in the field of manipulation and study of cell lines and/or flow cytometry.

This Summer School is not intended for researchers with consolidated experience in the manipulation of cell cultures and/or flow cytometry
