From Stars to Cells: Johns Hopkins Researchers Discover Predictive Spatial Phenotypic Signatures with AstroPath

One of the biggest questions in immuno-oncology is figuring out how patients will respond to immunotherapy. Approaches like single-plex immunohistochemical stains don’t capture enough information to accurately predict response. To help solve this challenge, researchers at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) developed AstroPath, a novel platform which combines the Phenoptics multiplex immunofluorescence (mIF) workflow with sky-mapping algorithms...
