Single cell and spatial profiling is a field of dynamic, rapidly developing research that is changing the way we view previously intractable problems and which allows for the generation of completely new hypotheses. We hope that you will be active participants in the seminar series and the field at Duke.


Following the tremendously successful Single Cell Colloquium, we are now launching the long-awaited Duke Single Cell Initiative (SCI) Research In Progress (RIP) Seminar Series. The intent of Duke SCI (“sky”) RIP is to create an environment in which ongoing research will be presented in two 30-minute talks by wet and dry lab investigators. 

Kick off event Tuesday, October 26


Dr. Zhuzhu Zhang
Salk Institute for Biological Studies

Dr. Yang Li
University of California, San Diego
