This session focuses on how to identify ‘targetable pathways’, with the first lecture will cover ‘Big Data Approaches’.  Moving to single cells as opposed to whole tissues, this lecture will be followed by a series of short presentations focused on novel approaches for reclassification of the immune system and its relevance in liver disease.  We will then turn to cellular metabolism and hear about how to tackle the identification of novel targets within this field.  The session will be rounded off by a talk on cell-cell interactions, focused on the imaging of communication.
