LS1.6: Imaging and flow cytometry in Cancer Biology
Session co-organisers: Andy Riddell, Janet Fisher, Derek Davies, Ian Titley
Imaging and flow cytometry are well established and widely used technologies that have an important role to play in many areas of biology and biomedical research. This is particularly true in the study of cancer: cell development, cell-cell interactions, cell proliferation and cell death. Recent advances combining flow and substrate-based cytometry, the emergence of high-throughput and high-content analysis systems and the ability to image and quantitate fluorescence from individual single cells in flow have increased our understanding of cancer cell biology and have led to improvements in drug targeting, delivery and monitoring. This session will encompass these advanced cytometric techniques.
