2023 Scientific Program


GLIIFCA 32 Core Facility Managers’ Workshop (LaCrosse/Milwaukee/Green Bay)

12:00 PM – 5:00 PM

This workshop offers perspectives on developing marketing strategies for core facilities as well as addressing public relations and conflict resolution. Core managers and staff can network with colleagues facing similar challenges marketing and running flow core facilities. We will have a discussion regarding the challenges of educating our users on Current Best Practices in flow cytometry to build rigor and reproducibility into research. In addition, attendees are encouraged to bring their own issues for a general networking session. Come prepared to actively participate in this workshop. We look forward to learning from everyone’s experiences.
