Spotlight on Neuroscience

Profiling five neuroscientists who use single cell and spatial profiling techniques to gain new insights into nervous system dysfunction

10x Logo NEW 2021



Neuroscientists are now employing single cell and spatial gene expression solutions to understand the mysteries of the brain. These new methods rapidly advance our knowledge of the nervous system and may pave the way for new neurological disease treatments. 

In this eBook, we profile five neuroscientists at the cutting edge of neuroscience research. While their specific interests differ, their ultimate goal is unified: to understand and find cures for devastating neurological disorders.
