About this event
Nearly all the body’s functions are based on cellular heterogeneity – from complex neurobiological functions, to the development of disease from an individual tumour cell – single cell technologies can give incredible insights into health and disease.
Despite single cell analysis already playing a major role in biological research, challenges remain to make the best use out of the technologies.
Join us for our Single Cell ONLINE – a virtual 4-part series where we dive further into the technology that is giving insights into cellular heterogeneity.
Each session will be one hour long and will be at 3pm BST/ 4pm CET/ 10am ET
** Please note: By signing up to one webinar in the series you automatically get registered to all of the sessions in the series**
With developments in technical ability to separate single cells from each other and the falling cost of sequencing, single cell analysis can transform our understanding of diseases at the cellular level.
As technology is constantly evolving, it is difficult for anyone to stay on top of what the latest technology does, whether it is right for them or their research question. So how, and where, should we invest for the next era of single cell studies?
Join us for this interactive global panel discussion featuring world leaders in the single cell and genomics field, as we explore the current state of single cell studies and what is on the horizon.

For this three-part webinar, leading experts in genomics will share the latest breakthroughs in genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic analysis at the single-cell level. Workflow improvements in sample preparation, biochemistry and data analysis will be discussed. Additionally, presenters will highlight recent success stories targeting fundamental questions in biology as well as addressing clinical demands in the emerging field of precision medicine.
Join us for these three insightful presentations:
"scRapid: Faster Single-cell RNA Sequencing with Unparalleled Sensitivity" - Simone Picelli, Head of the Single-cell Genomics Platform, Institute of Molecular and Clinical Ophthalmology Basel
"Dispensing Technologies for Highly Efficient Single-cell Analysis Workflows" - Julian Riba, Chief Scientific Officer, cytena
"Single-cell Proteomic and Transcriptomic Analysis of Macrophage Polarization" - Nikolai Slavov, Allen Distinguished Investigator, Assistant Professor, Northeastern University
Integrative single cell analysis provides a unique set of challenges. With single cell already playing an important role for drug discovery, join us as we discuss the lessons learned from global pharma companies as we implement, refine protocols and apply the technology across the R&D pipeline.
