NIH Flow Cytometry Interest Group Annual Meeting
Thursday, December 12, 2019, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm
NIH Clinical Center (Building 10), Lipsett Amphitheater
The NIH Flow Cytometry Interest Group (FCIG) provides a central source of information for basic and clinical investigators doing flow and image cytometry. The group's upcoming meeting offers the opportunity to learn more about the current research applications of flow cytometry and to discuss the use and implications of these advances for clinical applications. The meeting will feature Translational Research talks on the role of commensal microbiota in eye disease, extracellular vesicle flow cytometry, and more. In addition, the event's Innovative Technology talks will cover full spectrum and fluorescence lifetime flow cytometry, as well as new developments in image cytometry and machine learning algorithms.
Friday, December 13, 2019, 9:00 am to 3:30 pm
NIH Porter Neuroscience Research Center (Building 35), Room 620/630
This annual meeting, hosted by the Center of Excellence in HIV/AIDS and Cancer Virology (CEHCV) at the National Cancer Institute's Center for Cancer Research, aims to provide a venue for students, post-docs and staff scientists to present emerging work and hypotheses in the field of cancer virology, with a particular focus on the exchange of information about the biology of HIV and cancer-associated viruses. This year, the meeting's keynote speaker will be NIH Distinguished Investigator Giorgio Trinchieri, M.D., who will present a talk titled “Microbiome in Carcinogenesis and Cancer Therapy.”
Abstract submission for this meeting will close on November 22.

RNA biology has emerged as one of the most influential areas in modern biology and biomedicine. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) is home to a wide spectrum of work in RNA biology, such as elucidating RNA biogenesis and structure, identifying functions for various classes of RNAs, establishing the role of RNA in disease, and exploring RNA-based and RNA-targeted therapies.
This workshop will focus on how basic steps in RNA metabolism are carried out and are integrated into a complex intracellular environment. It aims to bring together experts in the field to describe recent advances in methodologies used to understand subcellular RNA distribution, organization, and function; discuss the impact they have had on current models; and identify key areas of future development.
Registration for this event will close on March 27, 2020, or once conference capacity has been reached. Registration is free, but please register early to ensure a seat at the conference.
