SITC 2021: Spatial Biology Poised to Address Challenges in Immuno-Oncology

Studies in recent years have established that the spatial arrangements of cells hold information crucial to understanding immunotherapy response. In a study published in the Journal for ImmunoTherapy of Cancer (JITC), Lu et al. found that multiplex imaging-based approaches like multiplex immunohistochemistry (mIHC) and immunofluorescence (mIF) had much higher predictive power compared to single-plex PD-L1 IHC or single-cell sequencing. Those findings were reflected at this year’s Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) Annual Meeting…

Spatial Biology Takes Center Stage at AACR 2021: Part 2 of our conference recap

The AACR Annual Meeting went virtual for the second year in a row in 2021. The cancer research community has done an admirable job of adapting to the new format – AACR brought together leaders in the field to share new research and discuss the future of cancer treatment. While we miss meeting our users …

Ultra-High Plex Spatial Biomarker Imaging in Neuroscience Research

We invited our Senior Applications Scientist, Oliver Braubach, PhD, to write a guest post for our blog. Prior to joining Akoya, Oliver spent 12 years in Neuroscience research and built up a career that focused mainly on imaging technologies. In this post, he discusses how multiplex immunofluorescence facilitates neuroscience research. He also provides an overview …

New CODEX & Phenoptics Data from the 2020 Virtual AACR Annual Meeting

This year’s AACR Annual Meeting was an entirely different experience. Held online and split into two events, the meeting still managed to bring together the cancer research community – the first half of the conference in April drew over 60,000 attendees alone. There were multiple posters at AACR demonstrating the applications of CODEX & Phenoptics …
