XIII Congress of the Iberian Society of Cytometry

Dear Colleagues,

On the behalf of the Iberian Society of Cytometry (SIC) and the Organizing Committee, we would like to invite you to the
XIII Congress of the Iberian Society of Cytometry that will take place in Aveiro (Portugal) on May 9th- 11th of 2013.

The scientific program was drawn attending to the topical interest of the themes, which embrace a diverse range of scientific areas and where immunology, hematology, biotechnology and oncology occupy a prominent place. In the concretization of the scientific program, the XIII Congress of the Iberian Society of Cytometry relies on the presence of a significant number of invited speakers whom scientific merit is internationally recognized.

Your presence in the XIII Congress of the Iberian Society of Cytometry will be the best gratification of the effort made to concretize this event. Aveiro is a beautiful coastal town, located between Oporto and Coimbra, known as the “Portuguese Venice” and considered one of the most enchanting destinations of Portugal. This town, with a long maritime tradition, exhibits a delightful landscape, cut out by the multiple water channels of ria de Aveiro, delimited by charming Art Nouveau style buildings of the 19th century and where the colorful moliceiro boats drift.

We wish you a pleasant stay in Aveiro and that this Congress fulfills your expectations.

Jordi Petriz
President of the Iberian Society of Cytometry

Cancer: Unregulated Cell Division

Have you ever wondered how cancer grows? Take a close look at the cancer cell division in this realistic 3D animation. Compare and contrast healthy animal cell division to unregulated cancer cell division side-by-side for a deeper understanding of cancer tumor growth. The animated daily timer provides a real-time update on the total number of daughter cells produced during healthy and cancer cell division. This multifaceted and visceral video communicates the aggressive nature of this disease and identifies unregulated cell division as the underlying mechanic of cancer.
