Many biological experiments are performed on groups of cells under the assumption that all cells of a particular "type" are identical. However, individual cells within the same population may differ dramatically as a function of cell cycle stage or microenvironment, and these differences can have important consequences for the health and function of the entire population. A conference, Understanding Cell Behavior through Single Cell & Single Molecule Biology, is slated Thursday-Saturday, Jan. 10-12 in the UNM Centennial Engineering Center, to help understand these important consequences.
Understanding Cell Behavior through Single Cell & Single Molecule Biology is a three-day event divided into two parts:
- A one-day symposium on Single-Cell/Single-Molecule Biology
- A two-day interactive conference on Quantitative Bioimaging
The conference is sponsored by the New Mexico Center for Spatiotemporal Modeling Center, Sandia National Laboratories and the New Mexico Center for Nanotechnology Training, with support from the UNM Cancer Center, the New Mexico Consortium, the UNM Nanoscience and Microsystems graduate program and the UNM Center for Biomedical Engineering.
