With just one day left of the ESPACE funding period, Dr Timo Trefzer of the Berlin Institute of Health at Charité, Germany, and Dr Diego Balboa of Centre for Genomic Regulation in Barcelona, Spain, presented the group’s work at the Human Cell Atlas (HCA) General Meeting 2022. The three-day event took place between July 27 and 29 and was organized as a hybrid event in Vienna, Austria, and online, this year with the theme “Building draft atlases, integrating across communities, and maximizing impact.”
The HCA is a global initiative, which aims at creating comprehensive reference maps of all human cells in order to understand human health. ESPACE builds on three prior HCA early pilot studies. The two-and-a-half-year study aims building a first version of the HCA of the pancreas.
All presentations from this year’s HCA General Meeting are now available on the HCA YouTube channel. Dr Trefzer and Dr Balboa’s presentation titled “Insights from ESPACE: the single cell atlas of human pancreas in health and disease” starts at 01:42 in the clip below.
