Donor Network West Celebrates First Phase of Tabula Sapiens Project

A celebration of the first phase of Tabula Sapiens Project at Donor Network West. The project involves procurement of a large number of non-transplantable organs and tissue for the purpose of building a cell atlas solely based on gene expression.

Numerous laboratories across Stanford and UCSF Medical Schools in close collaboration with Chen Zuckerberg Initiative have partnered to test and optimize methods of single cells gene expression in numerous organs and tissues throughout the human body.

There is no doubt that this project could identify numerous new types of cells in organs/tissues studied that have not been identified in animal models before.
