Single Cell ONLINE – A virtual series

When: July 9, 2020 Time: 3:00 pm

The human body has 40 trillion cells and roughly 200 different cell types. Amongst the diverse cell types lies incredible levels of cellular heterogeneity. There are some big biological questions that stem from single cells, like cancer, a potentially deadly disease starting in one cell out of 40 trillion.

Understanding the human body at the single-cell level has applications in neuroscience, the immune system, blood and more. In fact, many if not all the body’s systems are built on the concept of cellular diversity.

Recent advances in the ability to isolate single cells and amplify their genetic material marked the birth of single-cell genomics.

Join us for Single Cell ONLINE – a virtual 4-part series from global leaders using these technologies to better understand human health, starting on Thursday 9th July at 3 pm BST/ 4 pm CET/ 10 am EST.
