Join us at 4pm GMT/5pm BST on the 30th March for the third and final episode in our three-part series on Flow Cytometry. Our final session will be with Derek Davies, National STP (Scientist Training Programme) Training Lead at The Francis Crick Institute. During this series, 23rd March-30th March, we are bringing you expert speakers from all over the world to deliver exclusive talks on the topic. Join our Researcher Live Hub here to keep up with selected papers, publications by our speakers, and more.
Flow cytometry is well suited to examining DNA content in primary or cultured cells. It is a quick way of assessing cell proliferation but a successful experiment depends on knowledge of biology, sample preparation and the flow cytometer itself. In this webinar, Derek Davies will show how, once optimised, it is possible to derive information about cell cycle kinetics and monitor the effects of drug treatments and this analysis is useful in both the research and clinical fields.

Speakers Avatar Derek Davies

Derek is a National STP Training Lead at The Francis Crick Institute. He has been involved in Cytometry since 1980. After an initial grant-funded project looking at DNA and protein content in cervical cells, he moved to a core facility at what was the Imperial Cancer Research Fund in London. In 1996, he became the Head of the Facility which at the time had 3 sorters and 3 analysers and a staff of 3. In 2002, the ICRF became Cancer Research UK’s London Research Institute and the facility grew providing analysis, sorting and image cytometry. In 2015 the London Research Institute merged with the National Institute for Medical Research and became the Francis Crick Institute. He oversaw the transition of two flow facilities to the new Institute which now contains 30 cytometers – traditional flow cytometers, imaging flow cytometers and mass cytometers, and has a staff of 12. In early 2019 he moved into a more wide-reaching role and is responsible for training in all the Francis Crick Institute’s Core Facilities (or Science Technology Platforms).
