Symposium on single cell technologies in stem cell research

Scope

The scope of this symposium is to provide a forum to discuss the development and applications of single cell approaches in cell biology. What are the underlying biological and technical reasons for conducting such experiments? In what way does data from such approaches, as opposed to more traditional studies on pools of cells, change our understanding of cellular systems and individual cell properties/behavior? What types of novel biological insights can be obtained? What are the inherent limitations, challenges and current bottlenecks for broader implementation?

We aim to approach these questions from a more educational perspective and will actively engage students and postdocs in the conversation.

Welcome!

The registration deadline is May 17.
