In this next highly anticipated virtual edition of our See the Hidden Workshop Series, we will start to examine some of the emerging microscopy techniques being used to study cells within a spatial 2D and 3D context. We will examine the behavior and identity of cells in diverse tissues, and present proof-of-concept studies to identify local changes in protein content and investigate pathways involved in cardiac tissue injury. New technologies and approaches that leverage fluorescence multiplexing and spatial omics to address spatial cell biology will be discussed, along with the molecular insights they can bring to the treatment of diseases such as heart disease, cancer and immunology.

This online event, featuring live panelists, brings together a series of scientific talks and microscopy showcases. Dr. Ronald N. Germain (NIH) and Dr. Berta Cillero-Pastor (Maastricht University) will talk about how specialized microscopy approaches contribute to their spatial biology research. You will discover streamlined workflows that can enable a better understanding of biological pathways and provide greater knowledge for translational research.

The program centers around four specific areas in microscopy:

  • widefield multiplexing
  • single-cell/tissue microdissection
  • high-resolution confocal microscopy
  • Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based analysis.

We will continue to address the theme of advanced microscopy techniques for spatial biology with a follow-up workshop later in the year – so don’t miss this opportunity to join us for part 1!
