HuBMAP researchers Dr. Hua Tian of Penn State and Brent Stockwell of Columbia present this C60 secondary ion mass spec image of biomolecules in the portal triad, where three vessels meet to carry blood and nutrients to the liver. We hope this image de-livers! Yellow = CD4 T cells, cyan= CD68 macrophage, bright green = hematolymphoid cells, red=endothelial cells, white = smooth muscle actin, magenta = collagen, dark green = albumin, blue = nuclei
The National Cancer Institute is hosting an Innovation Lab the week of November 1-5, on the topic of "Visualizing Data in Context for Novel Insights". For UX developers, this is an exciting opportunity to partner with active cancer researchers to help improve our understanding of increasingly complex biological data. Multi-modal, multi-dimensional cancer data encompass unique design challenges around context and user perspective, areas where UX practitioners can bring important, specialized expertise. Please share with your UX professional and academic networks and encourage potential participants to apply by September 8.
CZI Pediatric Networks for the HCA grantees
The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative has announced 17 awards for its Pediatric Networks for the Human Cell Atlas. Jim Hagood (UCSD TMC) is proud to be coordinating an international team mapping the Nose, Mouth and Airways in infancy and childhood, with samples from 6 countries representing diverse global ancestries.
Congratulations to Jim and the other awardees!
Data Provider Project Plan Template
Dan Cotter from Stanford has created a project plan template for managing Stanford’s data submissions! If you’re interested in stealing appropriating the template for your own use, you are encouraged to do so. Link to Drive.
Topics for discussion: Finalizing the workshop dates, agenda and goals
Tissue Registration Contest
MC-IU is hosting a contest to get RUI data for all tissue blocks in the HuBMAP Portal. RUI data is required to use tissue samples for human reference atlas design.
The contest begins on August 31, 2021 and will run through September 10th.
Each tissue block you register increases your chances to win! The final winner will be drawn at the September Demo Day and will receive a 3D printed trophy of their organ.
The CCF Registration User Interface (RUI) in the HuBMAP Ingest Portal now supports the following organs: Brain, Heart, Large Intestine, Kidney, Lung, Lymph Node, Pelvis, Skin, Spleen, Thymus, Vasculature.
The RUI makes it easy to register data. See the following video and SOPoutlining the steps needed to add RUI registrations. Please contact Kirk Ebelhar or Andreas Bueckle with any questions.
manage the data generated by the HuBMAP Consortium, coordinate internal and external Consortium activities, develop novel tools for visualizing, searching, and modeling data, and build an atlas of tissue maps. The required HIVE Letter of Intent (LOI) is due 1 Oct 2021, and full HIVE proposals are due on 3 Dec 2021.
Applications are encouraged from ALL applicants for this open opportunity.
This ROA requires a Plan for Enhancing Diverse Perspectives (PEDP) as part
of the application. Applicants are strongly encouraged to read the ROA
The Annual Junior Investigators' Virtual Meeting will take place September 22-23, 2021. This two half-day meeting will bring together biologists, physician-scientists, and computational biologists in the early stages of their careers from Human Tumor Atlas Network (HTAN), The Human BioMolecular Atlas Program (HuBMAP), and Chan Zuckerberg Initiative Seed Network (CZI) to work towards building atlases of tissue organization at an unprecedented resolution for answering fundamental questions in human health and disease. For the purposes of this meeting, a ‘junior investigator’ is defined as a graduate student, postdoc, staff scientist, or early-career faculty. The meeting conducts several workshops such as grant writing, lab management, equity in science, getting involved in future consortiums, and also opportunities to chat and network with top-tier journal editors. The meeting also conducts several inter-consortia networking sessions with games, speed introductions, expert subgroup meetings, and freeform discussions based on abstract topics from the attendees. The plenary talk will be delivered by Dr. Aviv Regev, with a focus on science in the academic and industrial world.
