While it’s not often discussed, problems within the endometrium, the mucosal lining of the uterus, affect the sexual and reproductive health of women worldwide. Little progress has been made over the past decade in studying these disorders, due to complex hormone-mediated dynamics and intercellular interactions. However, by merging the benefits of single cell and spatial tools, Dr. Roser Vento-Tormo and collaborators at the Wellcome Sanger Institute are now advancing our understanding of the cell–cell interactions in the womb to improve women’s health.
Join this webinar to learn about:
- Generation of a spatial cell atlas of the endometrium from over 95,000 single cells and location data from tissue sections across stages of the menstrual cycle
- Identification of epithelial cells and epithelial–stromal cell crosstalk dysfunction as the source of most genetically linked endometrial disorders
- Using single and spatial cell atlases as a blueprint for engineering human tissues
The webinar will consist of a ~40 minute presentation followed by a live Q&A session.
