The Inspiration behind FloCyte
Those of us who know the technology of Flow Cytometry, realize this is an amazing tool and technique that will benefit many areas of science and medicine! In 2000, after successful treatment for cancer, Sue DeMaggio decided to make a change in her career from Core Manager of the Optical Biology Core at UC Irvine and start her own business helping others discover this technology and find rewarding jobs and careers in flow cytometry! As she recruited new cytometrists, many asked how to get more training and the FloCyte Regional Training Program was born!! With the help of Peter Lopez, Drs. Carlton Stewart and Jennifer Wilshire, they developed a basic training program that would introduce the basics, including a Boot camp and advanced Multiparameter Strategies course. With their first invitation to Cleveland Clinic in January 2003, FloCyte’s training program began. Since then, over 5000 individuals have been trained all over the world, in almost 100 different locations and over 250 courses.
FloCyte is expanding and growing, introducing Coordinators for Europe, the South Pacific, and North America to coordinate all course invitations for those areas. To invite us to present a course in your location, click on the map in the upper right!
