MRC Human Genetics Unit Symposium: Aberrant Cell State Transitions In Human Disease

A goal of the MRC Human Genetics Unit at the University of Edinburgh is to understand disease at the level of the gene, cell and cellular environment. Studying single cells is allowing us to characterize and understand cell states that are relevant to disease. We feel that the scientific community is now at an inflection point where the available experimental and analytical techniques will allow significant insight to be gained into the biology of human disease.

Session themes include single cell insights into human genetic disease and cancer, and emerging approaches to biological/mechanistic follow up of single cell findings.
