Synopsis

**Unfortunately, we have had to close the poster submission deadline early as we have already reached full capacity for poster presentation! We are looking into increasing the number of poster slots, so if you would like to be added to our reserve list, please email a copy of your abstract to Amy Johnson, and we will keep you updated if additional poster opportunities become available.**

Recent years have witnessed transformative advances in the ability to profile distinct biological features at the resolution of single-cells, which has reverberated across biology and medicine. These breakthroughs encompass new microfluidic techniques, molecular advances in next-generation sequencing approaches, and the development of computational platforms to analyse sequencing information at massive scale. All these gave us the ability to profile the genome (DNA sequencing), transcriptome (RNA-Sequencing), epi-genome (ATAC-Sequencing, DNA methylation sequencing) at single cell resolution leading to a deluge of novel information on the biological make up of a number of cell types, tissues and even whole organisms. The field of human health has used such sequencing and analytic approaches to start profiling normal and disease states, leading to significant breakthroughs in our understanding of how disease looks at the single cell level. Such tools are now applied to human genetics, immunity, infection and the understanding of cancer, to mention just a few areas of intense interest. The main focus of this conference will be to explore of how these methodological advances in single cell biology can impact our understanding of human disease, and lead to the introduction of novel therapies. Our goal is to bring together both single cell biologists and human health leaders, to spark new interactions, collaborations and generate ideas that will lead to future clinical trials and cures. We also aim to highlight new technical breakthroughs in the areas of sequencing and protocol development, sample preparation, and data analysis. As the field is progressing at warp speed it will important to hear from leaders in the field of single cell technology development and understand new directions and future applications. Finally, our objective is to see how such new technical developments can be applied to the study of human disease, opening a window on genomic medicine of tomorrow.

Educational Need

The field of single cell biology has erupted the last five years with the introduction of next generation sequencing technologies that probe the genome, transcriptome, epigenome and even spatial positioning of individual cells. As the tools and number of applications increases, there is a need for a review of the field and an intense look to the future with a focus on human disease and single cell technology applications. 

Learning Objectives

  • Understanding of how single cell biology impacts the understanding of human disease 
  • To bring together both single cell biologists and human health leaders 
  • To spark new interactions, collaborations and generate ideas
  • To present new technical breakthroughs

This stylish hotel features contemporary Mexican architecture, including one of the largest and most impressive thatched-roof "palapas" in the entire country. There are cultural activities, arts and crafts and sports programs to keep you constantly entertained, plus time to relax and enjoy the Mayan culture, soak up the Caribbean sunshine and revel in the international ambiance that settles in after the sun goes down.

Throughout your stay delegates will enjoy a full meal plan, inclusive of beverages. Take your pick from the aromatic Asian delights at Kaumbu, traditional fare at El Mexicano, delicious international cuisine at Kalmia Buffet or perhaps sample the sumptuous Italian dishes at Rosato. There are also several other dining opportunities such as the Cevichería, Pizzeria, Sushi Corner, pool and lounge bar areas. The Gala Night with either a Mayan or Caribbean theme takes place on the third evening of the conference with a mouth-watering feast of local cuisine, an open bar and amazing local entertainment.  We welcome all delegates and their accompanying persons to the Gala Night – a truly fun filled night not to be missed!

Hotel Facilities

- Lagoon Pool
- Extensive Health Club and Spa
- Complimentary Wi-Fi in guest rooms and throughout hotel and conference areas

Location

Cancun is a delightful combination of natural beauty, islands, ecological reserves and white sandy beaches. However, besides sun, sand and sea, this destination also offers an infinite variety of underwater activities to choose from: the diving, snorkelling and fishing here are outstanding and you will find an undersea world packed with tropical fish that live on the second largest barrier reef in the world. Sports enthusiasts might choose one of the many eco-tourism activities, such as cycling or hiking through the tropical forest or kayaking through mangroves, or something a little more adventuresome, like zip lining through the treetops.

Apart from the more well-known ancient Mayan archealogical sites such as Tulum, Cobá and Chichén Itzá you may like to visit the Aktun Chen caverns, voted one of the Top 10 underwater walks by National Geographic described as a truly magical experience.

Local Activities

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we will not be offering group activities on this occasion. However, if you wish to explore Mexico or organise an individual trip, we recommend the following activities. We ask that any off-site trips are organised during free time or pre/post conference, to ensure you are fully present for the meeting.

-   AquaWorld. Lots of water based activities available including snorkelling, paragliding, glass bottom boat trips and more. Approx. 10 minute walk from the hotel. More information- https://aquaworld.com.mx/en/tours/ 

-   Xcaret Park. Xcaret is a water, theme, amusement, eco-archaeological park and more, in one place. Due to its privileged location in the Mayan jungle among underground rivers, cenotes and facing the Caribbean Sea, there are lots of activities on offer. Approx. 1 hour drive from the hotel. More information - https://www.xcaret.com/en/about-xcaret/

-   Tulum Mayan Ruins (Day Trip). The Mayan ruins in Tulum, Mexico, are a must-see attraction for anyone visiting the gorgeous Riviera Maya. Built as a seaport fortress with steep cliffs and limestone walls, the ancient city is one of the best-preserved coastal Maya sites in Mexico, much of which still stands after more than 800 years. Approx. 1 hour 50 minutes drive from the hotel. More information -  https://www.islandlifemexico.com/tulum-ruins-visitors-guide/

-   Isla Mujeres (Day Trip). A beautiful, peaceful paradise just across the Bahia de Mujeres (Bay of Women) from Cancun, Mexico. Known for beautiful white sand beaches, calm crystal clear turquoise waters and the friendliest locals in the Mexican Caribbean. With the beauty of the Caribbean, the heritage of the Mayans, and the easygoing charm of the people, Isla Mujeres has become a haven for people from all over the world. Approx. 1 hour 5 minutes from the hotel via ferry. The Gran Puerto Cancun (Ultramar) ferry dock is located in Puerto Juarez, a few minutes from downtown Cancun. The boats leave every half hour from 5:00 am until 9:30 pm and every hour after that. The crossing takes about 15 minutes. More information - https://www.isla-mujeres.net/

-   Chichen Itza (Day Trip). Chichen Itza was one of the most important city-states in pre-Hispanic America. It’s one of the 7 Wonders of the World and is one of the most visited archaeological sites in Mexico. Chichen Itza is divided into Old Chichen and Chichen Itza where you can find 6 Mayan Ruins in Old Chichen and around 20 Mayan Ruins in Chichen Itza, making it a total of 26 Mayan Ruins to see on the Mayan Site. Approx. 2 hour 46 minutes drive from the hotel. More information - https://www.chichenitza.com/
