Asset 2 Conferences

Final chance to join VIB’s first virtual conference: Emerging Technologies in Single Cell Research!

3 November 2020

The first edition of SingleCell20 is taking place on 19-20 November 2020 and will be organized by VIB, a non-profit life sciences research institute in Belgium, and LifeTime, a pan European research initiative, as a virtual conference. The VIB Conference team has found the perfect platform for SingleCell20 to give attendees, speakers and exhibitors the same experience as a live event.

Already 320 attendees signed up for SingleCell20 and we want you there as well! The aim of SingleCell20 is to create an opportunity to address and discuss current medical challenges. The outstanding program contains different topics such as:

  • Single Cell Epigenomics
  • Single Cell Multi-Omics
  • Single Cell Computational Biology
  • Single Cell Spatial Omics
  • New Single Cell Technologies to Study Disease

The virtual conference allows you to connect with other attendees, interact with the speakers and discuss the 78 posters during the online poster sessions!
