Single Cell ONLINE- From Cells to Rapid Biological Insights: Leveraging novel technologies

About this event

Researchers are increasingly turning to single-cell analysis to answer some of the most fundamental questions about how cells interact and what causes disease.

But, with big data comes big data challenges. Now that we’re deep into the single-cell era, how can we improve how we approach analysis, streamline the process and get better results, faster?

Join us for this 3-part webinar series that uncovers the full potential of single-cell sequencing and spatial omics.


Webinar 2: Leveraging novel technologies

Thursday 12th May, 3pm BST/ 4pm CET/ 10am EST

With rapid technological advances at our fingertips, leveraging the latest technologies for the deepest insights is at front of mind for most researchers. In this webinar, we present case studies that are utilising the latest single-cell, multi-omics and spatial technologies.


  • Improvements in Single-Cell RNA-Sequencing data delivering the promise of RNA therapeutics – Gabriela Salinas-Riester, Head of Core Unit, University of Medical Center Gottingen
  • Longitudinal single-cell RNA-seq analysis revealing stress-promoted chemoresistance in metastatic ovarian cancer – Anna Vähärautio, PI in Research Program in Systems Oncology, University of Helsinki
  • Next generation lineage tracing of mouse brain development via single-cell and spatial transcriptomics – Michael Ratz, Postdoc, Frisen Lab, Karolinska Institute


Webinar 3: Applying advanced computational approaches to single-cell and spatial omics

Thursday 19th May, 3pm BST/ 4pm CET/ 10am EST

Turning data to insights requires advanced computational approaches. In this webinar, we present approaches that are changing the game in single-cell data analysis.

  • Using scFind to search single cell data – Martin Hemberg, Member of the Faculty of Neurology, Harvard University
  • Spatial omics data analysis with Squidpy – Giovanni Palla, PhD Student, Helmholtz Zentrum Munich
  • Imputing spatial transcriptomes with tensor completion guided by protein-protein interaction networks – Rui Kuang, Professor, University of Minnesota

Webinar 1: Panel discussion: Staying ahead of the game with single-cell analysis

Thursday 5th May, 3pm BST/ 4pm CET/ 10am EST

With so many advances in single-cell analysis, it can be difficult to stay ahead of the game. In this webinar, we will focus on how researchers are approaching (and improving) the setup of the single-cell workflow and how they are applying this to their research.


  • Luciano Martelotto, Head of Development Laboratory, University of Adelaide
  • Anna Wilbrey-Clark, Staff Scientist, Wellcome Sanger Institute
  • Kerstin Meyer, Principal Staff Scientist, Wellcome Sanger Institute
