SCOG Virtual Lecture Series
‘Recent Advances in Single Cell Omics’:
51. Hedda Wardemann (DKFZ Heidelberg)

We are excited to announce the next speaker of our SCOG Virtual Lecture Series ‘Recent Advances in Single Cell Omics’: Hedda Wardemann (DKFZ Heidelberg).


‘Single-cell based antigen-receptor gene and function analyses of the human immune response to a complex pathogen’

We have developed a platform for the high-throughput analysis of Ig gene repertoires that preserves natural IgH and IgL gene associations and provides full-length Ig gene sequence information for direct gene cloning and the production of recombinant monoclonal antibodies. Recently, we have established a similar platform for the amplification and cloning of paired T cell receptor (TCR) alpha and beta chain genes to enable functional assessments of TCRs at single cell level. I will discuss how we use this platform to study the clonal evolution and functional quality of the human immune response to the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum with the long-term goal to develop improved vaccine design strategies.

Further information on participation, the program and the application for a lecture can be found below.

    VIRTUAL LECTURE SERIES: 'Recent Advances in Single Cell Omics'
    • Monthly event on Wednesdays at 4 pm (CEST)
    • 30 min presentation, followed by 15 min discussion / Q&A

    The virtual lecture series includes biweekly presentations about current single cell research. In addition to selected presentations by invited guests, we would particularly like to offer SCOG partners a platform to present their work to the network (read below how to apply).
    The program will be updated regularly (see schedule below).


    The Virtual Lecture Series takes place via Zoom. Please register in order to receive information on how to join the webinar. Your personal join link will be valid for all upcoming lectures of the series.


    We would kindly like to encourage the SCOG community not only to participate as an attendee but to present their work to the community. All contributions are welcome.
    If you are a SCOG partner (PI/group leader) or member (Postdoc) and would like to give a talk during the lecture series, please apply by completing the form on our website. Please note that a balanced representation of topics, institutes and gender will be ensured in the selection of applications.
