Dr Joseph Powell: Using single-cell sequencing to diagnose and tailor personalized treatment for interstitial lung disease.
Westmead Hub Bioinformatics and ‘Omics Seminar (WH-BOS)
Location:Seminar Room 2, Children’s Medical Research Institute (CMRI)
We are very lucky to have Dr Joseph Powell joining us to present some of his work in single-cell sequencing. Joseph’s lab is one of the primary producers of single-cell sequencing data in Australia and as a statistical geneticist, he is also a major developer of new and interesting ways to analyse data from this exciting technology.
Food + refreshments will be provided. Discussions and networking are encouraged. To connect up to the seminar by web video conferencing please contact me for further details.
Speaker: Dr Joseph Powell, Head of the Garvan-Weizmann Centre for Cellular Genomics, Garvan Institute for Medical Research.
Talk Title: Using single cell sequencing to diagnose and tailor personalized treatment for interstitial lung disease.
Associate Professor Powell is the Head of the Garvan-Weizmann Centre for Cellular Genomics, a Principal Research Fellow at Garvan Institute for Medical Research, and a member of the Faculty of Medicine, University of New South Wales. He currently holds a NHMRC Career Development Fellow, with the highest ranked application in his round; awarded an NHMRC Research Excellence Award (2015), and the prestigious 2016 Commonwealth Health Minister’s Medal for Excellence in Medical Research. His research is focused on understanding the functional mechanisms by which genetic variants contribute to disease susceptibility at a cellular level, and ultimately achieve therapeutic and diagnostic outcomes.
