November 19 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Join ICBR for an upcoming seminar with NanoString in CGRC 133
This seminar will focus on NanoString’s new GeoMx Digital Spatial Profiling technology. The talk will be centered around Digital Spatial Profiling, a novel way to quantify high plex protein and RNA panels with spatially-resolved data from FFPE samples. This platform allows you to localize the protein and RNA expression in heterogenous tissues.
Case studies in Immuno-Oncology and Neurodegeneration will be discussed at the seminar. Digital Spatial Profiling technology can be used for biomarker discovery, mechanism of action, target discovery and disease progression experiments. Here are a couple recent publications in Nature Medicine that highlight biomarker discovery for immunotherapy in melanoma:
- Neoadjuvant versus adjuvant ipilimumab plus nivolumab in macroscopic stage III melanoma
- Neoadjuvant immune checkpoint blockade in high-risk resectable melanoma
