Knee-d to bone up on cartilage cells? Check out the Image of the Week, which is of human cartilage from the knee-end of an adult femur stained with Safranin-O and imaged on a Zeiss Microscopy Axioscan microscope by the David Rowe lab at UConn. It’s the bee’s knees!
Laura, Milen & Nils will lead a discussion to plan a workshop on high-level cross-atlas data integration. We will identify goals and key stakeholders who should be participating in the workshop.
Possible workshop goals:
Identify standardization needs to enable cell-level queries across atlases
Determine coordination process across atlas projects
Describe a roadmap for implementation of cross atlas queries
Challenges and Opportunities in Understanding Cellular Senescence and Senolytics (RFI)
The NIH has published three RFAs (RFA-RM-21-008; RFA-RM-21-009; RFA-RM-21-010) in January 2021 to develop 3D cellular senescence maps of healthy human tissues and to develop novel tools and technologies to address the role of senescent cells in human health and disease. While these human maps are the ultimate goal, much research in biomedicine is performed in mice, and extrapolation of the findings to human health requires a detailed understanding of both the similarities and the differences between these species. Ultimately, bidirectional crosstalk between findings in human and mouse, combined with the ability to test the effects of experimental perturbation in mice, will more fully inform the role of cellular senescence in health and disease and the consequences of interventions targeting this process. Therefore, as a follow up to the human RFAs, we would like to focus efforts on a similar and complementary goal in mice.
Enable Medicine (enablemedicine.com) is a new company out of Menlo Park, CA that runs CODEX-based image acquisition and analysis in their labs, and have a pipeline that performs single-cell segmentation, characterizes marker expression, and interprets cell-cell interaction maps.
