From Cells to Process:
Advances and Challenges in Single Cell Biology

JUNE 28-29, 2018

Single cell methods are rapidly evolving and have already lead to important discoveries in basic sciences as well as in medical applications. This two-day scientific symposium hosted by the IRI Life Sciences will bring together experts in the field to showcase and discuss current trends, with topics covering

  • sequencing,
  • -omics at single cell and subcellual resolutions,
  • single cell and single molecule imaging,
  • new analysis methods and many more.

    Registration open! 

Registration is free of charge, but required since space is limited.

Please register here.

Abstracts can be submitted for selected short talks. Selected speakers will receive free accommonadation and full reimbursement of travel costs.
