Dr Sarah Teichmann FMedSci FRS
Head of Cellular Genetics and Senior Group Leader, Wellcome Sanger Institute
Dr Teichmann is a world-leading scientist who combines her expertise in computational and systems biology with single-cell biology, genomics and immunology. She applies her knowledge using novel approaches to answer questions fundamental to our understanding of biology and medicine.
Dr Teichmann is a founder and principal leader of the Human Cell Atlas international consortium.
Our teams are using single-cell approaches, so called “cell atlas” technologies to combine with human genetics at the cellular level. We combine cutting-edge techniques in wet and dry lab and are applying these methodologies for further understanding of human health, development and disease.
Human Cell Atlas
Human Cell Atlas aims to create comprehensive reference maps of all human cells—the fundamental units of life—as a basis for both understanding human health and diagnosing, monitoring, and treating disease.
Our group seeks to elucidate general principles of gene expression and cell signalling. We aim to understand how changes in cell state are regulated at the transcriptomic and epigenetic levels by studying human tissues and organs in conjunction with organoid models at the single cell level.
