We are a community of researchers around Sydney who strive to improve the quality of research through discussions of all forms of single-cell modalities, whether it be wet-lab methodologies or computational analyses.
We aim to have monthly meetings where researchers get a chance to present their work, discuss shared challenges and solutions, and evaluate papers and technologies related to the single-cell field.
Occasionally, research leaders will come and give a talk on their work. We hope to create a friendly round table where everyone can discuss any ideas or problems they have.
Everyone is welcome.

Bio: Kylie completed her PhD studying immune responses to malaria at QIMR in 2016. She then joined Sarah Teichmann at the Wellcome Sanger Institute, UK, as a postdoc and junior research fellow at Christ’s College, University of Cambridge. Kylie moved back to Australia and joined the Garvan in January as an NHMRC-funded Team Leader and Spinak Fellow investigating cell signatures and interactions underpinning inflammatory bowel disease.
