Norwich Single-Cell Symposium 2024

Now in its seventh year, and extended to a two-day event, the Norwich Single-Cell Symposium at Earlham Institute covers single-cell genomics technologies and their application in microbial, plant, animal and human health and disease.

Start date: 26 June 2024
End date: 27 June 2024
Time: 09.30 - 18.00
Venue: Earlham Institute (Norwich UK)
Registration deadline: 26 May 2024

About the event

Single-cell genomic technologies continue to develop at pace, generating new insights into cellular diversity within living systems. 

This event aims to bring together researchers who are curious about applying single-cell technologies with those who are experts working at the forefront of the field and across a wide range of species. 

Held in partnership with the UEA School of Biological Sciences, the symposium covers single-cell genomics technologies and their application in microbial, plant, animal and human health and disease. 

Offering a forum for researchers working on similar challenges in diverse systems to discuss the latest developments in single-cell genomics, while networking with other researchers with the intention of catalysing future development and application of single-cell genomics across the UK. 

The event will feature talks from keynotes, invited speakers and selected abstracts, and we are keen to capture as broad a range of single-cell applications as possible.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Single-cell genomics in plant and microbial research
  • Single-cell genomics in health, disease and development
  • Single-cell informatics
  • Single-cell technology development

We will also be opening up doors to Earlham Institute’s single-cell labs, so you will be able to see our technology and capability as well as access our expertise through our researchers. 


We are offering the opportunity to present your research at the symposium as a short talk, and abstracts should be submitted when you register. We would particularly like to encourage PhD students, early career researchers and technicians to submit abstracts, we have reserved plenty of time and space in the schedule to hear from you all!

  • The submission deadline for abstracts is Sunday 28 April 2024
  • All abstracts must be submitted electronically as part of your registration. Submissions via email will not be accepted
  • Abstract limits are 250 words (excluding title, authors and affiliations)
  • Presenting author should be highlighted in bold
  • Abstracts will be reviewed and presenting authors notified of the outcome within 2 weeks of submission closing.
