The power and promise of single-cell transcriptomics of the kidney

The kidney consists of many cell types working together to support its complex physiological tasks. To understand how the kidney develops and is affected by disease, we need a clear picture of these different cellular players. A few years ago, we could get low-resolution data from micro-dissections. Now we can capture the RNA landscape (transcriptome) of individual cells to discover novel cell types and obtain a higher resolution picture of kidney development, disease processes, and 3D models. Join us December 11th and 12th to learn about and discuss how single-cell RNA sequencing is revolutionizing science in nephrology and beyond …
