Mapping development and regeneration in vivo and in vitro
by Dr Roser Vento-Tormo, Biochemical Society’s 2021 Early Career Research Award winner.
The webinar is part of our dedicated Early Career Researcher (ECR) series.
At this session we will hear from Dr Roser Vento-Tormo at the Wellcome Sanger Institute, Cambridge, UK, the Biochemical Society’s 2021 Early Career Research Award winner. She completed her postdoctoral studies under the supervision of Professor Sarah Teichmann as an EMBO and HFSP fellow. Here she developed CellPhoneDB, a unique resource of ligands, receptors and their interactions, integrated with a statistical framework to build cellular communication networks from single-cell transcriptomics data. Roser has used this cutting-edge computational framework to study maternal-fetal communication during early pregnancy in humans. More broadly, CellPhoneDB has also been key to identifying cell-cell interactions mediating fundamental biological processes including hematopoiesis and the tumour microenvironment.
