Spatial Biology ONLINE - Webinar 4: Dissecting complex tissues with spatial insights

About this event

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 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 to understand tissues, & applications in 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.
