The Philip Levine Memorial Lecture

Event Details

Friday Lecture Series
Sarah Teichmann, Ph.D., Professor of Stem Cell Medicine, department of medicine, Cambridge Stem Cell Institute, Cambridge University
Speaker bio(s)

The 37 trillion cells of the human body have a remarkable array of specialised functions, and must cooperate and collaborate in time and space to construct a functioning human. Harnessing cutting-edge single cell genomics and spatial technologies, the Teichmann Lab has been attempting to understand this cellular diversity, how it is generated during development and how it goes wrong in disease. Dr. Teichmann's talk will illustrate how cell atlasing in three spatial dimensions and across developmental time can accelerate our understanding of how functioning tissues and organs are formed in the body.

Sarah Teichmann did her PhD at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge, and was a Beit Memorial Fellow at University College London. She started her group at the MRC-LMB in 2001, and moved to the Wellcome Genome Campus in 2013, where her group was joint between the EMBL-EBI and the Wellcome Sanger Institute. In 2016 she was appointed Head of the Cellular Genetics programme at the Sanger. Dr. Teichmann is co-founder and co-leader of the international Human Cell Atlas consortium, which aims to create reference maps for cells across all human tissues and co-directs the CIFAR MacMillan Multiscale Human research programme. In 2024, Dr. Teichmann took up a Chair in Stem Cell Medicine at the University of Cambridge (Cambridge Stem Cell Institute & Dept Medicine).

FLS lectures will take place in Caspary Auditorium and virtually via Zoom. We recommend virtual participants log out of VPN prior to logging in to Zoom. Please do not share the link or post on social media. This talk will be recorded for the RU community.
