Human Tumor Atlas Network Summer 2023 Meeting (Overview)


Please join us virtually for the Summer 2023 Human Tumor Atlas Network meeting on June 12-13, 2023!

The Human Tumor Atlas Network (HTAN), a NCI Cancer MoonshotSM initiative, aims to produce molecular resolution, single-cell spatial atlases of cancers as they progress from pre-cancer to cancer, transition from locally invasive to metastatic disease and respond or become resistant to cancer therapy. The HTAN launched in 2018 with two pilot projects, ten HTAN Centers, and the HTAN Data Coordinating Center. HTAN investigators have contributed twelve data- and insight-rich atlases and over 150 publications describing new cancer biology, potential biomarkers related to cancer risk and treatment response, and over thirty new experimental and analytical approaches. Data, protocols, and analysis tools associated with HTAN are available on the HTAN data portal, the Institute for Systems Biology Cancer Genomics Cloud, and the NCI Cancer Research Data Commons resources.

The hybrid Summer 2023 HTAN meeting will take place virtually and at the Broad Institute in Cambridge, MA. Participants outside of the HTAN program are welcome and highly encouraged to join the meeting virtually to learn more about HTAN and to interact with HTAN investigators. The two-day meeting will highlight the HTAN atlases that are currently available and include presentations from investigators outside of HTAN that have employed HTAN data and resources in their own projects. Virtual participants will be able to ask questions and contribute to the meeting through the platform. Registration for the meeting will be open until June 13, 2023.
