“Resolving single cell heterogeneity  –  Systems microscopy meets single cell omics”

September 25, 2015, at Nobel Forum (Nobels väg 1), Karolinska Institutet - campus Solna, Stockholm, Sweden

Recent advances in cellular imaging facilitate the quantitative determination and classification of single cell behavior at high resolution in space and time, thereby resolving cellular heterogeneity in different dimensions; between cells, within cells and within the same cell over time. At the same time, current omics developments have enabled deep expression profiling of single cells as well as other techniques, allowing the determination of heterogeneity in cell populations and systematic characterization of such heterogeneity at the molecular level.

The purpose of this conference is to bring together these emerging research fields to exchange ideas and knowhow and to explore common interests and possibilities for joint efforts.

The meeting is organized by the EU-financed Systems microscopy Network of Excellence. A list of invited speakers is found below.
