High Throughput Imaging Characterization of Brain Cell Types & Connectivity

Date and Time

December 14–15, 2022
11:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. ET

Location

Virtual

Overview

The advent of high throughput single-cell sequencing and imaging methods has enabled comprehensive molecular profiling of mammalian brain cell diversity and construction of foundational reference brain cell atlases for the study of brain function and disorders.

The purpose of this NIH BRAIN Initiative workshop is to discuss unmet needs and emerging imaging approaches to characterizing brain cell types and their connectivity in human and other mammalian brains, in parallel with the BRAIN Initiative funding opportunity announcements (RFA-MH-22-290, RFA-MH-22-291, RFA-MH-22-292).

The workshop will:

  • Benchmark existing technologies, identify critical gaps and barriers of the imaging pipelines, and discuss potential solutions through innovation and collaboration
  • Streamline individual steps and processes from tissue acquisition, processing, through tissue labeling, imaging, data analysis, visualization, and integration
  • Establish expectations for data sharing, scalable computing, and reuse by the broad research and education communities
