HUMAN CELL ATLAS BIOLOGICAL NETWORK SEMINAR SERIES

The goals of this seminar series are: 

  • to increase biological network visibility and spark new opportunities for collaboration and engagement; 
  • to promote coordination with other networks, such as the CZI Seed Networks; and 
  • to lay the groundwork for drafting Atlas roadmaps in each biological area in preparation for work sessions at the virtual June 2021 HCA General Meeting.
  • This seminar will take place the second Thursday of each month, 10:30 – 12:00 p.m. EST 

The HCA Biological Network Seminar Series is made possible through the generous support of the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.
