About the webinar

Spatial biology is revolutionizing molecular biology by enabling the examination of cells within their tissue microenvironment. It empowers scientists to reconstruct tissue structures and compartments and investigate intricate cell-to-cell interactions and dependencies. This level of detail is unparalleled by any other available method. The resulting multiplexed images require easy-to-use image analysis tools that are tailored specifically for biologists and pathologists. In this masterclass, we illuminate the significance of spatial biology in modern research, unveiling its potential to revolutionize our understanding of biological processes and disease states. 

We will discuss its capacity to unveil hidden biological nuances and disease mechanisms within tissue landscapes. Emphasizing the practical needs of biologists and pathologists, we will delve into: 

  • Image visualization and quality control. 
  • Tissue segmentation strategies to delineate anatomical regions and tissue compartments accurately. 
  • Cell segmentation, both turn-key and enhanced. 
  • Phenotyping for characterizing cellular populations and discerning pathological features. 
  • Spatial neighborhood analysis tools, illuminating the spatial relationships vital for understanding microenvironmental influences. 
  • The demand for interactive data interrogation platforms, facilitating intuitive exploration of results and hypothesis generation. 

Join us as we navigate the complexities of spatial biology and multiplex image analysis, empowering biologists, and pathologists to decode the mysteries concealed within biological landscapes. By bridging the gap between images and insights, Phenoplex equips researchers with the tools to navigate and understand the complexities of biological systems with precision and clarity.
