Science Meetings

Collaboration means recognizing that the challenges in biomedical science are complex, and solving them requires different kinds of expertise — clinical, experimental, computational, engineering, and others. By convening the best from all of these fields to find new ways to work together, we aim to accelerate the pace of collaboration, and create an environment that nurtures discovery and innovation.

We support scientific communities through a wide variety of events, including meetings, workshops, hackathons, and retreats.

At workshops, we consult with scientific leaders in different fields to see how we can best learn from them. We want to know what is holding their field back and how it could move forward faster with our help. At investigator meetings, we invite grantees to come together and present the projects we’ve supported, while retreats offer the opportunity for graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and staff scientists from those same projects to share their work and build community. At hackathons, grantees join CZI staff for a deep dive on coding and/or computational biology.

Barriers to Achieving Heterogeneity in Cohort Research Workshop | September 2019

September 2019

CZI staff attended the Reaching diverse and underrepresented groups in multimodal studies meeting that was held in Denver, Colorado. This meeting gave us the opportunity to connect with speakers and attendees at a satellite workshop after the main meeting. At this workshop, participants highlighted barriers to achieving heterogeneity in cohort research and discussed possible solutions. We appreciate the partnership with the University of Colorado to make this workshop happen.

Seed Networks for the Human Cell Atlas Kickoff Meeting | July 2019

July 2019

At the end of July 2019, over 200 people traveled to Toronto, Canada to launch CZI’s Seed Networks for the Human Cell Atlas program during a three-day meeting. This program funds 38 collaborative teams to support the continued development of the Human Cell Atlas. The meeting group consisted of more than 150 of the Seed Networks investigators, external partners from a variety of funders and institutions, and representatives from the HCA Data Coordination Platform, along with CZI program staff, computational biologists, and engineers. Building the HCA is a complex challenge that demands diverse contributions, and the goal of this first meeting was to help individual labs and projects understand the many activities across the HCA community.

2018 SciComm Training Summit: Building Community, Creating Capacity | December 2018

December 2018

In the past few years, demand for scientist communication training programs has increased from scientific institutions. Even though there is significant demand for these programs, there has been little development of best practices, shared metrics, and an overall sense of professionalism of the field. At a December 2017 workshop convened by the Kavli Foundation, the community of trainers expressed a strong appetite to forge a community of practice as the field continues to grow to meet demand. To meet this need, CZI and the Kavli Foundation partnered with COMPASS, the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science and facilitators from Converge to convene a Science Communication Training Summit between December 4-5, 2018, with the objective of building an inclusive science communication training community of practice and advancing the field. The organizations and programs represented at this meeting train an estimated 20,000 to 30,000 scientists each year.  

Outcomes of this meeting will be shared in the first quarter of 2019.

Analysis of Multimodal Cohort Datasets Workshop | October 2018

October 2018

Recent technological advances have resulted in an increasing amount of health data in multiple modalities, including genomic, imaging, and medical record data. Multi-domain data is incredibly powerful and can be used to identify trends within a population cohort or gain insights into a complex multi-factored disease, far beyond what is possible when looking at only a single modality. We brought together experts working at the intersections of these different modalities to discuss the challenges and possibilities in aggregating, exploring, and analyzing these complex data.

Pilot Projects for a Human Cell Atlas Europe Retreat | August 2018

August 2018

In August, we held the second of our 2018 retreats, this time in Stockholm. At these retreats we invite the graduate students, postdocs, and staff scientists who have contributed to Pilot Projects for a Human Cell Atlas to share their work. We specifically don’t invite the principal investigators leading each of these projects, but focus on the researchers in the labs. Our aim is to create a unique opportunity for these ambitious researchers, who are still early on in their careers, to showcase their work, share knowledge, and talk through challenges they’ve encountered.

Mining Scientific Knowledge Workshop: Extraction, Curation and Computation | July 2018

July 2018

This was our second knowledge environments workshop. We brought together a broad group of people: experts from academia, tech, publishing, representatives of online knowledge platforms, funders with interests in scholarly communication and digital information technologies, and others with expertise in this space. At this workshop we focused on how knowledge is extracted, curated, and integrated from data and literature sources, and on ways in which computational approaches can help make sense of today’s explosion of scientific data and information, and ultimately drive scientific progress.

Pilot Projects for a Human Cell Atlas West Coast Retreat | June 2018

June 2018

In June 2018, we held the first of three retreats convening graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and staff scientists who have contributed to Pilot Projects for a Human Cell Atlas. At CZI we want to accelerate science by strengthening collaboration and scientific networks. We believe a key part of that is connecting the scientists who actually do the work—thus, the graduate students, postdocs, and staff scientists. For this retreat, we therefore asked the principal investigators leading each of these projects not to come along or participate. Focusing on investigators in the labs creates a unique opportunity for these researchers to showcase their work, learn from one another, and start new collaborations.

Collaborative Computational Tools for the Human Cell Atlas Investigator Meeting | April 2018

April 2018

We organized a four-day, interdisciplinary meeting in Aptos, CA of over 200 scientists, computational biologists and software engineers who will contribute to Collaborative Computational Tools for the Human Cell Atlas. The conference kicked-off a new collection of grants to researchers working collaboratively to solve computational challenges presented by the Human Cell Atlas, including developing a new cloud-based data infrastructure, and analytical methods for processing and interpreting large, complex datasets. Participating researchers were grouped into 12 loose research areas, and asked to present collectively about their projects. Much of the meeting also consisted of structured and unstructured working time, encouraging researchers to share ideas, recontextualize their work, and think about how they may be able to work together. You can read more about this meeting in our Medium post.

Accelerating Rare Disease Research Through Patient Communities, Partnerships, and Tools Workshop | March 2018

March 2018

To date, more than 7,000 rare diseases have been identified that affect between 25 and 30 million Americans (nearly 1 in 10). The underlying biology of the vast majority of these diseases is poorly understood, and fewer than 5 percent of rare diseases have any established therapy. An increasing number of sophisticated patients are seeking to address these shortcomings by becoming active drivers of research. While this patient-driven approach shows promise in many disease areas, it has proven especially powerful in accelerating rare disease research. In March, we engaged a small group of patient drivers — individuals who have significantly advanced research in their own disease area — to explore the challenges and opportunities for facilitating patient-driven research.

Pilot Projects for a Human Cell Atlas Investigator Meeting | January 2018

January 2018

In 2017 we invited applications for one-year pilot projects to help develop technologies and establish best practices for the Human Cell Atlas. In early 2018, the researchers leading the awarded projects met in San Francisco to connect, share their project plans, and initiate further collaborations.

These investigators span eight countries and four continents, so it was a special treat to have everyone together in person to discuss their projects and learn about each other’s work. The energy in the room was great. We heard from scientists studying specific cell types, like those who are working to optimize the analysis of cells in healthy human skin. We also heard from technologists, including a collaboration of 16 groups who are benchmarking methods together.

We learned so much over those two days. This meeting was a fantastic way to start the new year.

Cellular and Subcellular Imaging Workshop | May 2017

May 2017

In our talks about biological imaging, we explored the idea of developing teams of software engineers to work on problems in microscopy and imaging. We considered the benefit from specialized centers that would provide expertise, resources, and tools for more scientists to learn and apply advanced imaging techniques. And as in most scientific work, we saw a need for collaboration, in this case between chemists, engineers, physicists, and biologists, to broadly stimulate work the sharing of knowledge, ideas, and tools between research microscopy and medical imaging.

Neurodegeneration Workshop | April 2017

April 2017

In our discussions about neurodegeneration, we talked about the need to understand the genes that have been linked to conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). We talked about the value of well-characterized antibodies, more scalable methods for subcellular proteomics, and new stem-cell-based tools. In order to make progress in this area, we discussed the potential of enriching the culture of science by bringing researchers together in new ways and providing better support for young scientists who study neurodegeneration.
