EU GeoCast on Spatial Genomics
from Marco Island

Date: Tuesday, 25 February, 2020

Time: 4:00PM to 6:00PM CET, 3:00PM to 5:00PM GMT Check the individual programs below as start times may vary.

Locations: various throughout Europe - see drop down list

Join us for one of our seminars to see the exclusive content being presented at the pre-AGBT Spatial Genomics Summit from Marco Island, Florida, USA.
Find out how Spatial Genomics is enabling novel discoveries in a spatial-temporal dimension from your peers.

The following speakers will present their results obtained with the novel transcriptome analysis using NanoString’s GeoMxTM Digital Spatial Profiler.  Join our seminar to have the opportunity to ask your questions and connect with them over the Q&A session.

Delivering on the promise of Spatial Genomics:

  • Joseph Beechem, CSO, NanoString Technologies
    • NanoString’s roadmap for spatial genomics: Whole Transcriptomes and Beyond…
  • Katherine McNamara, Christina Curtis’ lab, Stanford University
    • Spatial proteomic characterization of the tumor and immune microenvironment reveals features associated with response to neoadjuvant HER2-targeted therapy
  • Peter Nelson, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center
    • Spatial landscape of the immune microenvironment in metastatic prostate cancer using GeoMx™ Digital Spatial Profiler
  • Alex Swarbrick, Garvan Institute
    • Mapping intratumoural heterogeneity of triple negative breast cancer through integrated single cell RNA-Sequencing and whole transcriptome Digital Spatial Profiling
  • Kenny Roberts, from Omer Bayraktar's ab, Sanger Institute
    • Neural stem cell differentiation trajectories in the developing human brain revealed by whole-transcriptome in situ spatial profiling
  • Jonathan Chen | Broad Institute
    • Single Cell Programs of Immune Activation in Human MSI vs MSS Colorectal Carcinoma
