Human Cell Atlas Group

Our Research and Approach

The International Human Cell Atlas initiative aims to create comprehensive reference maps of all human cells—the fundamental units of life—as a basis for both understanding human health and diagnosing, monitoring, and treating disease. We are undertaking research to develop, optimise and assess the performance of key enabling experimental and computational technologies that will underly this large international effort. We are also working to generate data from pilot projects that will begin to form the first draft of the Atlas. We work in collaboration with research groups within the Wellcome Sanger Institute as well as in EMBL-EBI on the Hinxton Campus.
