The Human Cell Atlas (HCA) is an international consortium working towards the goal of creating an atlas of every cell type in the human body. Since the HCA was established in 2016, thousands of researchers have used the latest emerging single-cell analysis technologies to examine human cells in unprecedented detail.

By charting the different cell types, positions and interactions, and providing open-access maps of their discoveries, researchers worldwide are improving the understanding of the biology underpinning health and disease.
