NanoString Technologies | Monday 20 June - 12:45 – 13:30 | Paris+Brussels Room

"Spatial Whole Transcriptome and single cell high-plex imaging: Quantum leaps forward in studying cancer"

A NanoString Technologlies representative will be joined by a customer who will show the results of their Spatial Biology research in cancer.

During the session participants will: Obtain new ideas, approaches and lessons learned relating to spatial transcriptomics, from two highly innovative, award-winning presentations; Learn more about using spatial transcriptomics in cancer research, including novel methods for discovering spatial biomarkers using the latest digital spatial profiling chemistry; Better understand how they can apply this technology in your research; and Understand how Spatial Profiling and Single Cell analysis complement each other.

During the symposium we will also talk about the EACR-Illumina-NanoString Grant running from 23 May - 04 July 2022.

Join us for an invigorating spatial discussion, where we show the latest data using the PhenoCycler™-Fusion system, the fastest single-cell spatial biology solution. Our speaker will discuss how whole-slide spatial phenotyping with a 100-plex panel can reveal insights into distinct cellular neighborhoods and explain partial immunotherapy response in a patient sample. We’ll also share the first feasibility data of a novel spatial RNA chemistry that will enable a multiomic workflow on PhenoCycler-Fusion. Additionally, Eanna Fennell PhD, Post-doctoral Researcher at the University of Limerick will describe the utilization of highly multiplexed, single cell spatial phenotyping techniques to quantify the immune microenvironment of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) associated malignancies and identify virus specific features across both solid and blood cancers.
