Celsius-Linneaus Lectures and Symposium in Uppsala
NGI welcomes all researchers with an interest in transcriptomic and single cell studies to this year's Celsius-Linneaus Lectures and Symposium.
Single cell sequencing has revolutionized life science research leading to a deeper understanding of biological processes in health and disease. Gene expression that were before masked in "bulk" measurements can now be observed directly in hundreds of individual cells at a time.
This year the Linneaus part of the lectures and symposium will focus on single cell technology and transcriptiomic studies, with Aviv Regev as the keynote speaker. During the symposium researchers associated with National Genomics Infrastructure (NGI) will present.
The Regev Lab uses techniques such as single-cell genomics, with a particular focus on single cell RNA-sequencing, to dissect the molecular networks that regulate genes, define cells and tissues, and influence health and disease.

The Celsius and Linné Honorary Lectures are arranged annually by the Faculty of Science and Technology in memory of Anders Celsius and Carl von Linné (Linnaeus), world-renowned professors of Uppsala University. The Celsius–Linnaeus Lectures have been held every year since 1991. Read more at the Celsius–Linnaeus Lectures and Symposium website.
