HuBMAP aims to catalyze the development of an open, global framework for comprehensively mapping the human body at cellular resolution. HuBMAP goals include: (1) Accelerate the development of the next generation of tools and techniques for constructing high resolution spatial tissue maps. (2) Generate foundational 3D tissue atlases. (3) Establish an open data platform. (3) Coordinate and collaborate with other funding agencies, programs, and the biomedical research community. (4) Support projects that demonstrate the value of the resources developed by the program. The HuBMAP Portal can be found at and the Visible Human MOOC describes the compilation and coverage of HuBMAP data, demonstrates new single-cell analysis and mapping techniques, and introduces major features of the HuBMAP portal.


The top 3 key questions that HuBMAP can answer:

  1. What assay types are best to map the human body in 3D and across scales?
  2. What Common Coordinate System (CCF) is best to construct the Human Reference Atlas?
  3. How can others help construct and/or use the Human Reference Atlas?
