Overview          Agenda          Speakers & Panelists



The Singapore Single Cell Network (SSCN) is a network of single cell researchers focused on all aspects of the field, including single cell and spatial technologies, computational methods and applications to basic science and translation. SSCN started regular meetings in 2020 to provide a forum for researchers to discuss new publications, technologies, ideas, troubleshooting and other topics.

Join us on 03 December, 2021 as we celebrate the first anniversary of the SSCN! The virtual meeting will feature a keynote speaker and local speakers, technology presentations by sponsors and a panel discussion on grant funding and publishing in the single cell field.
