To all Northeast area Histonetters and other interested parties, 

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory is hosting our annual symposium on Quantitative Imaging Cytometry, to be held in the Woodbury Auditorium on the CSHL Woodbury campus, on Tuesday, February 20. 

   Since there are a number of presentations involving tissue analysis applications, tissue microarrays, quantitative Immunohistochemistry and Pathology applications, I thought this might be of interest to the group.

The presentations include: 

*	"Cellular Life as a Biochemical Finite State Machine: Implications for Cell Based Assays" - James Jacobberger, PhD, Professor of Oncology, Associate Director for Shared Resources, Director Cytometry Core, Case Comprehensive Cancer Center, Cleveland OH "Activation of ATM and phosphorylation of H2AX reporters of DNA damage" - Zbigniew Darzynkiewicz. MD, PhD, Brander Cancer Research Institute, New York Medical College, Valhalla, NY 
*	"An introduction to Laser Scanning Cytometry:  Individuals Cells and Whole Tissues"  (LSC technology and applications update, with focus on apoptosis and tissue analysis)
	William Telford, PhD, Core Flow Cytometry, NIH/NCI, Bethesda, MD 
*	"Pharmacodynamic monitoring of molecular cancer therapeutics at the preclinical and early clinical stages of development" - David W Hedley, MD, Dept. of Medical Oncology and Hematology, Division of Experimental Therapeutics, Princess Margaret Hospital/Ontario Cancer Institute, University of Toronto 
*	"An automated method to monitor skin mast cells by Laser Scanning Cytometry"  Gloria Juan, Sr. Scientist, Clinical Immunology, Amgen 
*	"LSC analysis of tissue microarrays:  Application to subcellular localization of p27 and prostate cancer recurrence" - Peter Gann, MD, ScD, Department of Pathology, College of Medicine, University of Illinois at Chicago 
*	"Quantitative Imaging Cytometry:  Technology to support the new role of pathology in the era of specific targeted therapies"- William Geddie, MD, Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology, University of Toronto 

We will also offer an iCys® Research Imaging Cytometer hands-on clinic where we will make our Flow Cytometry Core instrument available for demonstration by CompuCyte scientists, who will also accept samples for evaluation on the instrument. This session will be held the following day, February 21, at the Flow Cytometry Core Facility in the Hershey Building on the Cold Spring Harbor Campus. All scientists interested in evaluating their samples must make prior arrangements with the organizers.

A more detailed agenda and registration materials are available at www.compucyte.com <https://mail.compucyte.com/exchweb/bin/redir.asp?URL=http://www.compucyte.com> . Registration for the conference is free of charge, but is necessary if you wish to have lunch. You obtain more information by contacting Pam Moody at moody <@t> cshl.edu <mailto:moody <@t> cshl.edu> .

I hope this is of interest!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS to everyone!
