“Mapping Human Immunity: One Cell At a Time”

Portrait of Sarah Teichmann
Sarah Teichmann.


Sarah Teichmann is co-founder and co-leader of the international Human Cell Atlas consortium, which aims to create reference maps for cells across all human tissues and co-directs the CIFAR MacMillan Multiscale Human research programme. In 2024, Sarah took up a Chair in Stem Cell Medicine at the University of Cambridge (Cambridge Stem Cell Institute & Dept Medicine).

The Teichmann team is using single-cell approaches, so called “cell atlas” technologies, combined with human genetics at the cellular level. They utilise cutting-edge techniques in the wet and dry lab and are applying these methodologies for further understanding of human health, development and disease. The team’s research focuses on four complementary study areas: Transcriptional regulation and gene expression, Single-cell genomics, Immunology, and Protein complexes. Sarah Teichmann is a world-leading scientist and she regularly publishes in journals such as Nature, Science and Cell.
