Center for Single-Cell Omics (CSCOmics)
CSCOmics is a new initiative to conduct biomedical research on genomics, proteomics and metabolomics at the single-cell level, with a focus on the speedy translation of new discoveries and technologies into the clinic. The new center also provides single-cell as a service to biomedical investigators and clinicians at our affiliated hospitals. The CSCOmics has its own, completely renovated research building on our medical campus in downtown Shanghai. The center hosts state-of-the-art single cell equipment. More information about the new center can be obtained from our web site www.shsmu.edu.cn/sph-cscomics or from its Director, Dr. Jan Vijg at [email protected].
Special interest in the following areas of research
- Single-cell, multi-omics technology development and application
- Cell heterogeneity in normal and ageing-related diseases, e.g., cardiovascular disease, cancer, and neurodegeneration
- Single-cell disease management (e.g., risk factors, [early] diagnosis, precision medicine)
- Reproductive development and aging
