MDC Newsletter 04/18: Of single cells, awards and digital diagnoses


Dear reader,

Every biology textbook states that cells are life’s building blocks. But researchers are only now beginning to understand their true diversity thanks to single-cell biology methods. This issue of Insights features several studies that take advantage of these new technologies. We’re also pleased to tell you about generous grants from the European Research Council, from the Human Frontier Science Program, and from the BMBF’s biotechnology start-up initiative GO-Bio.

You can never have enough awards? We had to turn one down this month. You can read what this is all about in the “Science and Society” section.

We wish you a good start to May,
Your MDC Insights team
