Important Experience

“Being able to participate in the "Hands-on Flow Cytometry: Learning by Doing!" was one of the most important experiences as a young researcher. The whole week shared with leading experts in this field broaden my understanding of this powerful technique and prepared me for the design of new, challenging experiments.”


Event: Hands-on Flow Cytometry: Learning by Doing!
Date: 20 - 24 Feb 2017


Effective Course

“Attending the training course has really energised me to carry on research independently. this course provided by EMBL was very effective, and I would to recommend all the interested ones to join this course.”
