The International Clinical Cytometry Society (ICCS) serves the needs of those involved in the current and emerging clinical applications of cytometry throughout the world. www.cytometry.org
Initially founded in the 1980’s, with the focus of hosting the Clinical Applications of Cytometry annual meeting, ICCS has expanded to provide its international membership with diverse resources that promote high-quality clinical cytometry, and a voice in advocacy issues.
Benefits of membership include access to a library of on-line educational materials, including e-learning activities, web presentations, videos, and an e-newsletter, electronic subscription to the society’s journal Cytometry, Part B (clinical cytometry), access to the membership directory and job and meeting postings, and reduced conference and course registration. In addition, ICCS provides an open access Question & Answer resource and practical Quality and Standards modules.
In-order to promote international education ICCS, together with the European Society for Clinical Cell Analysis (ESCCA) and generous funding from the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation, has also created the Clinical Cytometry Education network (CCEN). CCEN offers additional open access e-learning materials, practical, small group, hands-on courses held throughout the world, and an international visitors training program. www.cytoed.org
