Keynote speaker: Dr. J. Huggett, LGC and UCL, UK
Dr Huggett read genetics in Liverpool University followed by a PhD in Cardiff University where he studied the transcription in bone disease. Particularly interested in the application of advanced molecular methods to clinical scenarios he moved to UCL in 2002 to take up a senior research fellow position with Professor Alimuddin Zumla. Here he investigated diagnostic approaches to infectious diseases in developing world settings before moving to LGC in 2009, while retaining an honorary lectureship at UCL, which he still holds. At LGC, which is the UK’s designated national measurement institute role for chemical and bio-analytical measurement, he has led a large number of molecular diagnostics, genomics and nucleic acid research projects. This work focuses on high accuracy measurement as well as strengthening the traceability of measurements that underpin legislation, regulation and standardisation. In 2016 Dr Huggett joined the University of Surrey as a Senior Lecturer and holds a joint appointment with LGC.
Single Cell Europe 2018September 19 - 21, 2018, Prague, Czech Republic
Single cell Europe 2018 is the first specialized meeting for single cell analysis in Central Europe and will be held in BIOCEV (Biotechnology and Biomedicine Center of the Academy of Science and Charles University in Vestec), a modern research and development center within easy reach of the beautiful historical city Prague in the Czech Republic.
You will hear presentations from world leading scientists from various areas in the single cell field, innovative companies exhibiting latest products and technologies for single cell analysis and you can join hands-on training on single cell expression profiling getting opportunity to test state-of-the-art technologies. It is also excellent opportunity for networking and finding collaborators in this rapidly developing field.
