Workshops

Workshops bring together scientific leaders from specific fields to learn about current challenges and discuss future opportunities to help them advance their fields.

Investigator Meetings

Investigator meetings are all about collaboration. We give our grantees the opportunity to come together and present projects we’ve supported. We also convene graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and staff scientists to share their work and build community.

Hackathons and Jamborees

Hackathons and jamborees connect grantees and partners with CZI staff to dive deep into coding and computational biology.

For all our convenings, we aim to invite speakers and attendees with a diversity of perspectives and range of experiences. We have Community Participation Guidelines for our meetings and online communities, and we offer family care support when needed to ensure anyone can attend our meetings.

Investigator meeting

Over 100 grantees of the Rare As One Network participated in a two-day virtual event to build community together. All 30 rare disease organizations of the Rare As One Network presented short overviews of their staff and mission and highlighted the progress they have made during the first six months of the program. In addition to the presentations, attendees got to know each other better via 1:1 and small group networking sessions using Icebreaker and Zoom breakout rooms. The event identified synergies within the network, set up potential future collaborations, and highlighted opportunities for additional learnings for Rare As One Network members. Most of all, it brought the network closer together.

Inflammation Kickoff Meeting

Date:

June 2-3, 2020

Location:

Virtual Event

Type:

Investigator meeting

With this virtual meeting of over 200 attendees, we launched the Single-Cell Analysis of Inflammation program. This new program supports 29 projects that will utilize a spectrum of technologies with single-cell resolution to explore commonalities among inflammatory states and disease. The goal of this initial kickoff meeting was to convene the community, provide a forum for sharing projects, and begin to identify mutual interests and challenges that can be addressed by the community. 

 

CZI is excited to support this community around a new wave of inflammation research that adopts a systems biology approach for questions that have historically been constrained by a focus on single tissues, disease area, or cell types that provide a narrow window into an exquisitely complex process.

Date:

February 4-7, 2020

Location:

CZI, Redwood City, California

Type:

Hackathon

SpaceJam 2 (Spatial Transcriptomics Jamboree 2) was the second data analysis jamboree hosted by CZI and the Allen Institute for Brain Science. The goal of this jamboree was to convene members of the SpaceTx consortium, a CZI-funded Human Cell Atlas (HCA) pilot project, to analyze, compare, and contrast each individually generated image-based transcriptomics dataset and assess their ability to differentiate cell types in the brain. This comparison relied on analysis of processed data from each consortium member’s assay. Providing data was therefore a prerequisite for attending the meeting, and the end goal was to position the consortium for compilation and a path toward publication.

 

The three-and-a-half-day-meeting was formatted to have large blocks of working time. We started the meeting with lightning talks to get up to speed on current efforts, spent the majority of the meeting in groups working through analysis with regular report outs, and ended the meeting with presentations on progress. Throughout the event there were evening social events for the attendees, largely students and postdocs, to get to know each other and foster collaborations.

 

You can find more information on this event, including the final presentations at the end of the meeting, on the SpaceJam 2 website.

 

We appreciate the partnership with the Allen Institute for Brain Science to make this event possible.

The Preprints I/O workshop brought together open science advocates, preprint service providers, researchers in biomedicine invested in rapid dissemination, scholarly publishers, and tool developers. Designed as a two-day event featuring lightning talks and breakout group discussions, the workshop focused on exploring open practices that can be built on top of preprints, in order to accelerate the pace of scientific discovery and collaboration. Participants discussed these prompts:

 

  • What are researchers’ unmet needs that preprints can help support? What would the world look like if these needs were addressed?
  • What are the blockers? What stands in the way of meeting these needs?
  • What opportunities should the community consider in the short term? What should be built?

 

Throughout the workshop, the group identified several emerging themes and opportunities in response to these prompts. Read more about the outcomes of the workshop in this Medium post

Single cell RNA sequencing data represent the majority data type in the Human Cell Atlas (HCA). Normalization is a critical and fundamental initial processing step in the analysis of these data. A wide variety of algorithms exist for normalization — these range from simple scaling methods to the analysis of generative models of the data. However, it’s difficult to know which approach to use when, and what the consequences may be for downstream biological analysis. Normjam convened a group of experts to discuss and collaborate on several topics related to these problems.

SciComm Training Summit: Building Community, Creating Capacity

Read more

Participants at the SciComm Training Summit came together to build an inclusive science communication training community of practice and advance the field of science communications.

Date:

December 4-5, 2018

Location:

CZ Biohub, San Francisco, California

Type:

Workshop

 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, 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.

Type:

Workshop

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.

Type:

Student and postdoc meeting

In June 2018, we held the first of three student and postdoc meetings 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— the graduate students, postdocs, and staff scientists. For this event, we 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.

Participants at CZI’s Ethical and Practical Challenges of Biobanking Workshop at the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub.

Date:

May 22-23, 2018

Location:

CZ Biohub, San Francisco, California

Type:

Workshop

Biobanks and repositories are some of the greatest resources for researchers and physicians to study, understand, and treat diseases. Patients are at the center of biobanking, which necessitates carefully thought out solutions around ethical and practical challenges. This workshop brought experts from academia, medicine, biobanks, and organ donation organizations together to discuss what the key issues and challenges are that biobanking faces today, as well as where the field wants to go and how to get there.

Type:

Hackathon

CZI hosted a hackathon in San Francisco with software developers from several groups working on or using open source image visualization tools: Allen Institute for Cell Science, CellProfiler (Broad Institute), ImageJ / FIJI (University of Wisconsin), Neuroglancer (Google), ChimeraX (UCSF), and the CZ Biohub. We tried to frame needs for, and begin prototyping, web-based visualization components for image and volume rendering. The small size and overlapping interests provided an exciting learning opportunity for all involved — and we built some nice prototypes and started some collaborations in the process.

Researchers contributing to CZI’s Collaborative Computational Tools for the Human Cell Atlas came together to present their scientific projects.

Date:

April 24-27, 2018

Location:

Seascape Beach Resort, Aptos, California

Type:

Investigator meeting

We organized a four-day, interdisciplinary event in Aptos, Calif. 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.

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

Date:

March 16, 2018

Location:

CZI, Palo Alto, California

Type:

Workshop

As many as 7,000 rare diseases affect 400 million people globally. The vast majority are not well understood, and less than 5% have approved treatments. Yet worldwide, patients are meeting these challenges by partnering with scientists and clinicians and actively driving research. While this patient-driven research 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 advocates — individuals who have significantly advanced research in their own disease area — to explore the challenges and opportunities for facilitating patient-driven research.

CZI Head of Science Cori Bargmann speaks with researchers, who are working on the CZI Pilot Projects for the Human Cell Atlas, at the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub.

Date:

January 4-5, 2018

Location:

CZ Biohub, San Francisco, California

Type:

Investigator meeting

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 event was a fantastic way to start the new year.

Type:

Workshop

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 the sharing of knowledge, ideas, and tools between research microscopy and medical imaging.

Neurodegeneration Workshop

Read more

Participants attend a workshop about neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), at the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub.

Date:

April 26-27, 2017

Location:

CZ Biohub, San Francisco, California

Type:

Workshop

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.
