GLIIFCA/ORVCA 2018 Joint Meeting

The Great Lakes International Imaging and Flow Cytometry Association (GLIIFCA) and the Ohio River Valley Cytometry Association (ORVCA) are planning a joint meeting September 28th-30th, 2018, at the Marriott River Center, Covington, KY. The meeting will feature keynote speakers in imaging and flow cytometry, roundtable sessions with cytometry experts, a poster session and information on the latest cytometry technologies and tools. Travel awards are available for poster presenters to offset the cost of the meeting and monetary awards are given to the top presenters.

The GLIIFCA conference provides a great opportunity for the Great Lakes region cytometry professionals to come together and discuss innovations and recent research findings in the fields of image and flow cytometry. As always, we will have an outstanding group of speakers, including not only established senior researchers, but also young investigators passionate about cytometry.

Last, but not least, the famous GLIIFCA Banquet AKA cytometry costume party. The 2018 theme is Oktoberfest!

Carleton and Sigrid Stewart Lecture Keynote Speaker: Vincent Shankey

Dr. Vincent Shankey received his Ph.D. degree in immunology and medical microbiology from the University of Florida School of Medicine (1977), followed by a postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Pathology at the University of Pennsylvania from 1977 to 1981. Dr. Shankey has used flow and image cytometry in his research for over thirty years, working in clinical flow cytometry for much of that time. From 1987 through 2001, Shankey was director of research for the Urology Department and scientific director of the Clinical Flow Cytometry laboratory at Loyola University Medical Center, Chicago. In 2001, Dr. Shankey was recruited to join the Advanced Technology Center/Systems Research Group at Beckman Coulter. During this period, the focus of his research was the development of novel approaches to measuring signal transduction pathways and their alterations in human disease. He left Beckman Coulter in Jan, 2013, and is now an independent Biotechnology Consultant.
