About the Session

Single-cell genomics approaches are transforming our understanding of disease pathogenesis, allowing powerful, unbiased exploration of cell states and types at single-cell resolution, resulting in unexpected novel insights into tissue biology and disease mechanisms. In this lecture I will describe how we and others have harnessed these approaches to help decode the cellular and molecular mechanisms driving human liver disease.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand how the liver field is harnessing single cell genomics approaches to increase our knowledge of the cellular and molecular mechanisms driving human liver disease.
  • Appreciate the range of cutting-edge single cell genomics modalities currently being deployed in the field, such as single cell RNA sequencing and spatial transcriptomics.
  • Understand how application of these cutting-edge approaches are informing and accelerating the development of rational new therapies for patients with liver disease.
