Spatial Biology – Accelerating Translational Research & Clinical Applications

The field of spatial biology is advancing rapidly and has already contributed to novel insights in neuroscience, infectious disease, and autoimmune disorders by opening up the study of disease pathology.  Immuno-oncology on the other hand has been proving grounds for spatial biology tools, which are poised to transform clinical research in several key ways. 

Although it’s evident that spatial biology is supporting as well transforming drug discovery, tackling the spatial heterogeneity of tissue microenvironments from different angles, computational analysis of spatially resolved transcriptomic data and meeting the cutting-edge demands of biomedical research in general has been challenging. Furthermore, there is a significant need for collaboration between industry and academia for facilitating their application in pre-clinical and clinical settings.

To facilitate the latter point, discuss challenges and upcoming strategies the Spatial Biology Webinar will serve as a platform to brainstorm about the latest spatial technologies and the discoveries they enable across multiple biomedical disciplines with an emphasis on immuno-oncology.
