VIB

VIB is a non-profit research institute in life sciences. About 1,300 scientists conduct strategic basic research on the molecular mechanisms that are responsible for the functioning of the human body, plants, and microorganisms. Through a close partnership with four Flemish universities − UGent, KU Leuven, University of Antwerp, and Vrije Universiteit Brussel − and a solid funding program, VIB unites the forces of 76 research groups in a single institute. The goal of the research is to extend the boundaries of our knowledge of life. Through its technology transfer activities, VIB translates research results into products for the benefit of consumers and patients and contributes to new economic activity.

Advances in genomics through to in vivo physiology allow us, for the first time, to explore cellular heterogeneity at multiple experimental levels. Nowhere is this more important than in the Central Nervous System (CNS), where cellular heterogeneity has profound effects on all aspects of normal brain function and behavior, and explains important aspects of disease pathology.

This meeting assembles leaders in the field of single cell analysis, together with junior faculty, post-doctoral fellows and graduate students. We will discuss both cutting-edge technological developments in single cell analysis and what they reveal about CNS function and disease.

The conference will be preceded by a training day for graduate students and post-doctoral researchers, which will introduce junior researchers to essential techniques used in the field. More information about this will follow.

In addition to a great scientific and training program, there will be ample opportunities to network during the breaks, poster sessions, Meet the Expert-session and conference dinner.
