@S_Grosswendt: We have been awarded an #ERCStG! Many thanks to @ERC_Research, the panel & reviewers, and great colleagues for their valuable support @berlinnovation/@ChariteBerlin/@BIMSB_MDC/@MDC_Berlin
The grant will fund our single-cell research on cell interactions and their communication.

@BIMSB_MDC: OPEN POSITION @BIMSB_MDC: We are expanding and looking for 2 group leaders focusing on #spatialtranscriptomics, #organoids, #cellengineering or #RNAtherapeutics. More info @MDC_Berlin


Single cell genomics is revolutionizing biology and medicine, combining the advantages of bulk sequencing techniques and microscopic analysis of single cells.

Rapid technological advances now allow the profiling of genomes, transcriptomes and epigenomes at an unprecedented level of resolution. To harness the full potential of these developments new computational methods specifically tailored towards the analysis of single cell omics data are essential. Integrating efforts in all research areas involved will enhance the translation of single cell sequencing techniques to the clinic. The network Single Cell Omics Germany (SCOG) brings together national researchers using and developing single cell technologies to generate insights into biological systems. Its mission is to provide a collaborative platform for the exchange of both computational and experimental methods and expertise, thereby strengthening single cell research in Germany. Connecting the German single cell community with relevant international initiatives (such as HCA and IHEC), the network will help to address biomedical questions and foster translational research.
