Seventh Annual Stanford Cancer Systems Biology Symposium

The virtual symposium will be focusing on single-cell approaches to understand cancer, with a particular focus on tumor development, the tumor microenvironment (TME), and spatial genomics. There are seven talks covering cancer cells states in TME, a large-scale dissection of cell states in TME linked to tumor ecosystems, single-cell dissection of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma, single-cell RNA-seq analysis during homeostasis, cancer and autoimmunity, and more.

The registration is now open and free to all.  Please visit the symposium’s website for event registration and schedule.  Learn more >>
