Spatially resolved single-cell biology (D-BSSE eSymposium)
This workshop is co-organized by SCOG-partner Barbara Treutlein (ETH Zurich, D-BSSE).
The advent of single cell technologies in the last decade has enabled us to capture biological systems at cellular resolution and has transformed our understanding of tissue and organismal biology. We have learned that the relationship between cells and their spatial locations within tissues are critical for the understanding of homeostasis and pathophysiology. Our technical capabilities to study the spatial context of single cells is rapidly expanding – what is the current state of knowledge and which biological questions can we address now or will be addressed in the near future? Four diverse talks will discuss these questions in spatial single cell biology and will highlight some recent advances and challenges in this rapidly evolving field.
