Organs and tumors are composed of many different cells, which makes it challenging to understand the biology of these tissues at the cellular level.
Join us December 13 to learn about recent advances in measuring the genes in individual cells and analyzing the complicated datasets generated from these studies. These new methods have revealed extra insights into the biology of healthy and diseased tissues.
The free lecture and reception, open to the entire U-M community, will be held in the Forum Hall at Palmer Commons. The talk plus Q&A session run from 5-6 p.m. with a networking gathering to follow from 6-7 p.m.
University of Michigan researchers Jun Li, PhD, and Evan Keller, PhD, will present the talk, “Breaking the law of averages: the power of single-cell analysis.”
Dr. Keller obtained Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and Masters of Preventive Veterinary Medicine degrees from the University of California, Davis and a doctorate in Developmental Biology from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Currently, Dr. Keller is a professor of urology and pathology at U-M.
Dr. Li holds a number of posts including professor and associate chair for research of computational medicine and bioinformatics, and professor of human genetics. He also serves as co-director of the Michigan Center for Single-Cell Genomic Data Analytics and in other faculty positions.
