Aim and content
This course is free of charge for PhD students at Danish universities (except Copenhagen Business School), and for PhD students at graduate schools in the other Nordic countries. All other participants must pay the course fee.

Anyone can apply for the course, but if you are not a PhD student at a Danish university, you will be placed on the waiting list until enrollment deadline. This also applies to PhD students from Nordic countries. After the enrollment deadline, available seats will be allocated to applicants on the waiting list.


Learning objectives
A student who has met the objectives of the course will be able to:

1. The student will be able to identify, relevant protocols to analyze the samples with, define relevant controls needed for analysis, understand the limitation of flow cytometry, and be able to analyze obtained data in terms of publication/scientific presentation

2. The student will be able to plan their experimental setup for running and analyzing flow cytometry samples, apply this in a practical setting, analyze the achieved data, and compare the data to other groups.

3. The student will be able to run simple samples/protocols on flow cytometry and cell sorter, evaluate presented data from flow cytometry, and discuss flow cytometry on a basic level.


Content
The course will take you through basic knowledge of how to design and choose the right experiment, how to operate the instrument, and some of the pitfalls in flow cytometry. Several techniques will be demonstrated and the student will get a chance to work with these on our different instruments (FACSCalibur, LSR-II, and Aria-II).

The course is focused on the use of diva software, and to some extent CellQuest because of our choice of instruments, but independent software such as FlowLogic will also be demonstrated.

During the course some exercises will require preparation from day to day, since presentation / discussion with the group is needed.


Participants
PhD students and people on similar level, no previous skills in flow cytometry are needed.


Relevance to graduate programmes
The course is relevant to PhD students from the following graduate programmes at the Graduate School of Health and Medical Sciences, UCPH:

Immunology and Infectious Diseases


Language
English


Form
E-learning lectures (11-26/1-21), practical and theoretical exercises (27-29/1-21). The course has a follow up where students can get help designing their own experiments.
