Cell-based Medicine and RNA in Space & Time

Nikolaus Rajewsky PhD
Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine
Berlin, Germany

This conference is organized by Benoit Coulombe. It is part of the 2021-2022 IRCM conference calendar. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the conference series will be presented on Zoom.

About the conference :
I will summarise the concept of cell based medicine and ongoing strategic developments in Europe.  I will then present unpublished data from my lab where we investigate the function of RNA by using single-cell sequencing and optogenetic approaches at single-cell resolution to quantify and perturb RNA in time and tissue space Examples will include infection of human brain organoids with Herpes and analyses of cancer and kidney disease samples. I will also present a surprise project in the end.

About Nikolaus Rajewski:
Dr. Rajewsky is a Professor at the Charité, the Max Delbrück Center, and the Humboldt University in Berlin. He has received numerous awards, including the most important prize in Germany (“Leibniz” award). In 2008, he founded and since then chairs the “Berlin Institute for Medical Systems Biology” (“BIMSB”, a new MDC center, now 17 labs and a new building in the center of Berlin). His lab uses both computational and experimental molecular biology methods to study the function of RNA in animal development and stem cells. His latest research (and of colleagues) using single-cell approaches was featured in Science “Breakthrough of the Year 2018”. Dr. Rajewsky serves as coordinator of “LifeTime”, a pan-European consortium of 90 research institutions & >70 companies to understand molecular mechanisms of the progression of human diseases.
