Front Line Genomics invites you to their event

Spatial Biology ONLINE - Webinar 3: Harnessing the power of spatial technologies in research

About this event

Understanding the organisation of cells and tissues, and how this influences function is fundamental to life science research. The emergence of spatial and single-cell technologies has already provided insights into biological pathways and aided in our understanding of health and disease.

Join us for Spatial Biology ONLINE, as we discover the frontiers of spatial analysis and how this can be harnessed to gain unparalleled insights into human health.

Webinar 3: Harnessing the power of spatial technologies in research

Thursday 22nd September 2022 at 3pm BST/ 4pm CET/ 10am EST

Spatial technologies are rapidly advancing. From spatial transcriptomics, genomics and multi-omic technologies, how can we best apply these technologies in research and uncover the unparalleled resolution of spatial biology?

In this webinar, we will cover technological advances in spatial analysis, and provide an in-depth case study of utilisation in Alzheimer’s disease models.

Spatial Transcriptomics of Alzheimer's Disease Mouse Models with and without Trem2R47H Mutation - Frances Edwards, Professor of Neurodegeneration, University College London

Webinar 4: Dissecting complex tissues with spatial insights

Thursday 29th September at 3pm BST/ 4pm CET/ 10am EST

Spatial information can be crucial to our understanding of tissue pathology and can uncover clues into disease onset and progression. In this webinar, we will cover how spatial technologies are uncovering insights into disease.

Webinar 2: Spatial analysis for precision medicine and disease biology

Now available on demand

Dissecting the molecular information of diseases has been enabling granular understanding of the biological processes behind disease formation, and uncovering clues to treatment options.

The precision that spatial analysis provides can be harnessed as a tool for biomarker discovery. In this webinar, we examine how spatial technologies are being utilised to support drug discovery efforts and whether this type of analysis could hold the key to unlocking the next era of precision medicine.
