Katholieke Universiteit Leuven - Leuven Institute for single-cell omics (KUL-LISCO)

The KU Leuven Institute for Single Cell Omics (LISCO) nucleates interdisciplinary expertise in single-cell and spatial multi-omics to investigate normal development, aging and disease processes in humans and other organisms, down to the biology of unicellular life forms. LISCO aims to develop innovative single-cell analysis technologies and high-throughput platforms to enable breakthrough biomedical and biological science that transcends an individual research lab, to pioneer and set standards in disruptive single-cell technologies and research, and to translate technologies and biomedical discoveries to the clinic. It unites researchers from over 55 groups from KU Leuven, UZ Leuven and VIB-KU Leuven, creating a framework for academic and industrial collaboration, service provision, and training of the next-generation researchers.
