We are proud to announce Dr. Barbara Treutlein as a keynote speaker of the SCS 2019!
Dr. Barbara Treutlein is a Max Planck Research Group Leader, a Tenure-Track Assistant Professor at the Technical University Munich, and an Associate Professor at the Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering of ETH Zürich. She is being awarded the 2019 ISSCR Dr. Susan Lim Award for Outstanding Young Investigator, due to her outstanding work in single-cell transcriptomics.
Dr. Barbara’s group uses and develops single-cell genomics approaches in combination with stem cell-based 2- and 3-dimensional culture systems to study human organogenesis in health and disease. In particular, they use stem cell-derived human organoids to model the development of human organs in vitro and to understand how cell fate is orchestrated in complex human tissues. Thus, she was one of the first to reconstruct the development of complex mammalian tissue, and to provide a molecular description of individual cell regeneration in the axolotl limb.
