Front Line Genomics invites you to their event

Spatial Omics ONLINE: Webinar 4 - Spatial Biology In Cancer And Immuno-oncology

About this event

If you’re wondering how spatial context matters in complex biology, you should register for our upcoming webinar series: Spatial Omics ONLINE.

Across the 4 webinars, you’ll gain insights into how to gather and analyse spatial data of complex tissues and diseases. You will also hear some of the latest insights that global researchers have found, and what this implies for the future of medicine.

**Please note, by registering for the first webinar in the series you will automatically gain access to all subsequent webinars**

Webinar 4: Spatial Biology In Cancer And Immuno-oncology

Thursday the 4th of May at 3pm BST/ 4pm CET/ 10am EST

Armed with the ability to better understand cancer cells and their crosstalk with the tumour microenvironment, new opportunities to transform immuno-oncology therapeutics are arising.

In this webinar, we will discuss how spatial technologies are being used to underpin the mechanisms of cancer, and how this can be applied to unlocking the next era of immunotherapies.

Previous webinars in the series:

Webinar 1: Dissecting Complex Tissues With Single-cell And Spatial Technologies

Now available on demand

There are a plethora of cell types and cell-to-cell interactions that are not yet well understood. In this webinar, we will cover how we can unravel biological complexity using spatial technologies with examples in cancer and inflammatory bowel disease.

Reconstruction of 3D Cellular Neighbourhoods in a Human Tumour Maps Cellular Interactions Orchestrating Tumour Invasion and Immune Exclusion – Tancredi Pentimalli, PhD Graduate Student, Max Delbruck Center

Understanding Inflammatory Bowel Disease Using Single Cell RNAseq and Spatial Molecular Imaging – Azucena Salas, Inflammatory Bowel Disease Group leader, Hospital Clinic Barcelona

Webinar 2: Insights From Spatial Omics At Scale

Now available on demand

Multi-omics analysis is now commonplace at the bench to create deep information-rich biological snapshots. Coupled with spatial information, we are far better equipped than ever to accelerate research forward.

In this webinar, we will highlight the use of spatial multi-omics in research and discuss how we can decipher useful insights from these complex datasets.

Data Science Meets Spatial Omics: Deciphering Structure and Function of Complex Tissues - Abul Hassan Samee, Assistant Professor, Department of Integrative Physiology, Baylor College of Medicine

SCING, a New Single Cell Multi-Omics Network Modelling Method - Xia Yang, Professor, Dept. Integrative Biology and Physiology, UCLA

Webinar 3: Deciphering Biomarkers With Spatial Technologies

Now available on demand

Underpinning what is happening to tissues at an early stage of disease progression can help us understand changes at the molecular level that unlock critical insights into therapeutic opportunities.

In this webinar, we will discuss how spatial technologies can be used to uncover disease biology at scale, and how these technologies can help discover and validate biomarkers that can aid in drug discovery efforts and therapeutic monitoring.
