While ISAC's live cytometry courses and workshops have been extremely successful, participant access is limited by geography, time constraints, and finances, leaving much unmet demand.
CYTO U aims to address this need by providing peer-reviewed courses, recorded courses and tutorials from CYTO conferences, and a topical webinar series, among other interactive elements.
Launched in 2014, CYTO U features a wide range of content such as recorded sessions from the CYTO conference, a regular webinar series, and other features designed to enable cytometrists from around the world to interact with leaders in the field and with each other.
The driving principle for CYTO U is to maximize community access to high quality educational materials, and access to CYTO U will be free for all ISAC members, and at a nominal charge to non-members. Coupled with ISAC’s sliding scale for membership dues, CYTO U is intended to make cytometry education both accessible and affordable.
Of course, live lectures and lab courses offered by ISAC and others in the cytometry community will continue to play an important role in cytometry education, one that will be complemented by CYTO U.
