A forum for biologists, methods developers and computational modellers interested in understanding biology at single cell resolution

  • Summary

    Owing to the ongoing situation with covid-19, this event will be organised as a virtual conference.

    We are pleased to announce the third Single Cell Biology conference. This meeting will provide a forum for biologists, methods developers and computational modellers interested in understanding biology at single cell resolution.

    The cell represents one of the fundamental units of biology, yet only recently has it become possible to carry out comprehensive molecular profiling at single cell resolution. Coupled with appropriate functional experiments, this technological revolution heralds a new era of biology, which is widely expected to generate major advances in our understanding of normal tissue development and homeostasis, immunity and infection as well as tissue pathologies including cancer.

    This year’s meeting will discuss the biological insights gained from imaging and single cell genomics, particularly in immunology, neurobiology, development and disease. A further focus will be on methods, including computational approaches

     

  • Programme

    The conference sessions will be held each afternoon starting from ~1pm (GMT) from 9 November to 12 November 2020.

    Topics will include:

    • Dissecting development
    • Mapping and modelling development
    • Live cell dynamics
    • Spatial technology
    • Computational approaches
    • Disease

  • Abstracts

    We welcome abstracts from all areas relevant to the main themes of the meeting, for both oral and poster presentations. Several oral presentations will be chosen from the abstracts submitted.

    Abstracts will only be considered from registered delegates. Please use our online abstract submission system and follow the instructions given to ensure your abstract is submitted correctly. All abstracts must be submitted by the deadline. If you are intending to submit more than one abstract, please contact the conference organiser prior to registration.

    The scientific programme committee will assess your abstract after the deadline has passed and you will be notified whether you have been selected for an oral or poster presentation.

    Abstract deadline: Closed

  • Bursaries

    A limited number of registration bursaries are available for PhD students to attend this conference (up to 50% of the standard registration fee) from Wellcome Genome Campus Scientific Conferences.

    To apply, please contact the conference organiser. You will be sent a unique registration link which will hold your place, without taking payment, until you have been notified of the outcome of your application.

    The following documents will need to be provided as part of the bursary application:

    • Abstract (to be submitted via the portal during the registration process)
    • CV
    • A justification letter (explain how you will benefit from attending the conference)
    • A supporting letter from supervisor stating financial need

    If you have already registered for the conference you are still welcome to apply for a bursary, please contact the conference organiser.

    Bursary deadline: Closed
