overview

The Symposium is coordinated by the University of Wisconsin – Madison Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center and the BTC Institute. Emerging technologies to measure gene and protein expression in single cells are toppling dogmas in the field of stem cell biology. To describe recent advances, this symposium brings together leading researchers in single cell omics and stem cell biology. The presentations will not only highlight the approaches to evaluate gene expression and regulation, cellular metabolism, and spatial organization in single cells, but will also describe the computational tools to decipher the biology from these measurements.

HIGHLIGHTED ISSUES:

  • Applying spatial genomics to uncover stem cell dynamics
  • Visualization and integration of single cell omics data
  • Defining gene regulatory networks that underlie cell fate decisions
  • Visualizing the in vivo neural stem cell niche
  • Determining   organ size from  single cell information
  • Self-organizing single stem cell models for understanding early development
  • A multiscale model of stem cell state in cancer
  • Cellular metabolic heterogeneity in tumors
the symposium will be offered Virtually: april 14, 2021

the 2021 registration fee is $60, reduced to $30 for students and post-Doctoral Researchers.
