Description:The course consists of a collection of 10 real cases of immunocytofluorimetric laboratory tests, addressed to medical doctors , laboratory technicians and biologists, operating in the fields of hematology and immunology, with a focus on flow cytometric analysis of lymphocyte subpopulations. The English text was edited by professionals with medical and scientific background. units : Each exercise is presented using the "Problem Based Learning" method, reviewed by a biologist and supervised by a medical specialist in the field. The estimated time for accomplishing the tests is around 10 hours test: for each exercise a series of questions with multiple choice answers are provided. the test will be considered passed with 75 % of correct answers. the course will be delivered entirely in English, with the aim of exercising professionals on the medical terminology of scientific English. the main objective of the event is to let participants acquire theoretical knowledge and updates in the field of laboratory diagnostics and particularly of flow cytometry applied to the analysis of lymphocyte subpopulations. This will be achieved through the analysis of specific cases selected from real laboratory analysis. acquisition of technical and professional skills: participants will gain specific skills in the analysis of lymphocyte subpopulations. In particular, specific medical history will be given for each case, together with the results of blood counts and of flow cytometric analysis of lymphocyte subpopulations. For each different case study the participants will provide their comments and feedbacks. The use of the English language with its medical specific terminology will also allow participants to acquire linguistic competences in the field of hematology and immunology.
