Flash contest: win free ticket to see Yamanaka & friends in SFO

shinya yamanakaOn November 15th the 2013 World Alliance Forum “Future of Stem Cells” will be held in San Francisco.

It looks to be an awesome meeting.

The lineup of speakers is frankly stunning and in part the meeting is to congratulate Shinya Yamanaka on winning the Nobel Prize. It is a once in a lifetime kind of event.

I have arranged with the organizers of the meeting to give away two free registrations to the meeting to readers of this blog.

I expect a lot more than two people will want to take advantage of this opportunity so I’m having what I’m calling a “flash contest”. Why flash? The deadline for entries is in approximately 48hrs at 10am PST, October 23.

If you want to go, email me (see here) or leave a comment on this post. In 100 words or less say why you want to go. The two entrants who I think have written the best reason will win and I will publish their write ups.


Any entry longer than 100 words is automatically disqualified.

By winning and accepting the free registration, you agree to actually go to the meeting.

Also, to be clear, you have to find a way to get yourself to San Francisco & any other expenses you rack up. But once there you’d get into the meeting free without having to pay for registration.

You also agree by entering to have your “reason” write up and your name published on this blog.

  2. My interest in learning about normal and cancer stem cells dates back to my post residency days when I studied the biology of CD133+/CD34+/- cells isolated by MACS and FACS to study survival pathways (NFKB, PI3’K/AKT, and MAPK) through morphoproteomic analysis. Recently, I evaluated signaling mechanisms in CML progenitors using the novel mass cytometry (CyTOF) technology. Based on these data, I received the BD Biosciences 2013 Stem Cell Award. I think this conference will enhance my knowledge in the field which I feel strongly committed to delve further into using the latest technologies in single cell analysis.
