About HUTER Project

The human uterus is a major female reproductive organ essential to the continuity of the human species, and also plays an important role on infant and maternal mortality and morbidity and women’s health.

HUTER is the first project that focus on the transcriptomic, genomic and spatial changes of the uterus at single cell level throughout the menstrual cycle and across lifespan. The gained knowledge will contribute to better understand the human uterus and move forward its clinical translation in reproductive medicine, obstetrics, gynecology and regenerative medicine.

The Human Cell Atlas (HCA) Project is an international collaborative effort that aims to define all human cell types in terms of distinctive molecular profiles (such as gene expression profiles) and to connect this information with classical cellular descriptions (such as location and morphology). An open comprehensive reference map of the molecular state of cells in healthy human tissues would propel the systematic study of physiological states, developmental trajectories, regulatory circuitry and interactions of cells, and provide a framework for understanding cellular dysregulation in human disease.

End of HUTER project

on June 29, 2022

• Project results will contribute to the international Human Cell Atlas initiative to redefine human anatomy at the single cell level and provide unprecedented insight into this important organ • 59 samples have been analyzed, generating an important database that will favor future studies and increase knowledge of the uterus and its clinical translation in reproductive medicine, obstetrics, gynecology and regenerative medicine Valencia, June 29th 2022. The INCLIVA Health Research Institute, of the Clinical Hospital of Valencia, has hosted the final meeting of the European project HUTER (Human Uterus Cell Atlas), funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program with the aim of creating the map cell from the human uterus and in which entities from the United Kingdom, Sweden, Estonia and Spain participate.
