Biozentrum Lectures 2017: the elusive pericyte and its many roles in the blood micro-vasculature - Basel, Switzerland

Christer Betsholtz (Uppsala University and Karolinska Institutet Stockholm, Sweden) will present results from his recent study in which he applied single-cell RNA sequencing to define the major vascular and vessel-associated cell types of the brain and lungs. In addition to providing cell type and subtype definitions based on genome-wide quantitative transcriptional information, the data also reveals new insight into the arterio-venous zonation and organotypicity of vascular cells, as well as the identification and definition of hitherto unrecognized vascular cell types. The lecture will take place on October 16, 2017 at the Pharmazentrum of the University of Basel.
