Our Mission Statement


The Single Cell Spatial Analysis Program seeks to develop the University of Michigan into a recognized leader in applying high-resolution spatially-resolved multi‑omic analysis within individual cells and in cells within tissues to drive next-generation solutions in biology and human health. We will achieve this goal by:

  • Recruiting faculty experts to Michigan across the spatial analysis domains of technology development, data analysis and biological application
  • Empowering Michigan researchers to use leading edge spatial technologies by supporting wet and dry lab core services
  • Breaking down barriers by providing pilot funding and technical support
  • Promoting communication and collaboration by building a community of researchers who are active and interested in using spatial analysis
