Event description

Description

This workshop will discuss advances in single cell and single molecule analysis tools that could be used to better understand the effect of environmental exposures on human health. Speakers will explore current and potential research applications of these tools in cell-based and animal studies, the preliminary use of single cell and single molecule tools in environmental health studies, and the resources and guidance that will be needed for data generated using these tools to inform biomedical, public health, and regulatory decision-makers.

Participants will discuss questions such as:

  • What does single cell and single molecule analysis enable researchers to do better, for example in terms of precision, accuracy, and speed?

  • What kinds of environmental health questions or challenges could be explored with single cell and single molecule detection tools and analysis?

  • What are the key goals to advance or improve single cell and single molecule tools, particularly as they pertain to environmental health research and decision needs?

  • What are the key barriers or limitations to the use of data emerging from the use of single cell and single molecule detection tools, for example in terms standards, comparability across technologies, and the limit of detection uncertainties?
