Upcoming Taubman Technology Talk to focus on single-cell analysis

December 11, 2018  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Organs and tumors are composed of many different cells, which makes it challenging to understand the biology of these tissues at the cellular level.

All Michigan Medicine faculty and staff are invited to a Taubman Technology Talk on Dec. 13 at Forum Hall in Palmer Commons to learn about recent advances in measuring the genes in individual cells, and in analyzing the complicated datasets generated from these studies. These new methods have revealed extra insights into the biology of healthy and diseased tissues.

U-M’s Jun Li, Ph.D. and Evan Keller, Ph.D. will present “Breaking the law of averages: The power of single cell analysis” from 5-6 p.m. followed by a reception from 6-7 p.m.

The event is free but for catering headcount, please register by clicking here. 

Taubman Technology Talks is a new series that aims to inform the U-M community about ongoing advances in technologies.

Mark your calendar for upcoming T3 events in 2019! Locations will be announced soon via TaubmanInstitute.org and e-blasts.
