GLIIFCA believes that early career researchers—recently highlighted as “the harbingers of change” (David Nicholas et al, Learned Publishing 2019)—will shape the future of cytometry and pave the way for cytometry-based innovations.  To support early career cytometrists, we have launched the YoungGLIIFCA initiative. Let GLIIFCA help you start or accelerate your career in cytometry! 

Register as YoungGLIIFCA during the next GLIIFCA meeting and let us provide the following: 

  • Welcome bag (with vendor support) 
  • In-person introduction to the meeting program
  • Identification and management of individual meeting needs and expectations
  • Connection with other first-time attendees
  • mentor/ mentee introductions

YoungGLIIFCA will also become an integral part of the annual meeting by including early-career topics into the GLIIFCA meeting program, and by providing specific round table discussions and break-out sessions. 

There is no additional cost to participate in YoungGLIIFCA.

Are YOU YoungGLIIFCA?  YES, if you are within your first three years of starting any job in the field of cytometry (student, technologist, post-doc). 

Are you a VENDOR and would like to support YoungGLIIFCAWe are looking for donations of special cytometry “swag” to include into our YoungGLIIFCA welcome bag (educational materials covering techniques and protocols, cool posters with overviews of flow cytometry, imaging, or immunology, floaties for the water bath, fun pens, timers, chocolate, etc.).  Reach out to the Vendor Liaison team for more information!
