Akoya and Limerick Digital Cancer Research Centre Spatial Biology Grant Program

Gain a new perspective on your tissue samples

Akoya Biosciences is pleased to sponsor this grant program with the Limerick Digital Cancer Research Centre (LDCRC) to support cancer researchers in Ireland involved in deep immune profiling projects.

Goal: Using the CODEX® system, and a pre-designed immune profiling panel, the Digital Pathology core lab at the University of Limerick is offering a spatial profiling service to allow spatially resolved, highly multiplexed biomarker analysis at single cell resolution. This will enable researchers to study different cell phenotypes, and to explore how they interact in situ to impact disease pathology.

Deep Immune Profiling Panel from LDCRC

α-SMA CD107a CD31 CD44 CD68 HLA-DR
β-actin CD20 CD34 CD45 Collagen IV Ki67
CD11c CD21 CD4 CD45RO E-Cadherin PanCK
CD14 CD3e CD8 CD66a/c/e HLA-A Vimentin

Award:  A €1500 grant will be awarded to 2 researchers towards a spatial profiling project with the Digital Pathology lab at the LDCRC to support the purchase of assay reagents and/or antibodies required for the project. To apply, complete the registration form and provide a short abstract describing how a spatial perspective of your tissue samples at single-cell resolution can support your research.

Eligibility: Applications are open to cancer researchers from institutes across Ireland and Northern Ireland. Applications will close on 31st October 2021.

The grant program is subject to the Akoya and LDCRC Spatial Biology Grant Program Terms and Conditions which contain eligibility restrictions. Void where prohibited.

  • The tissue must be human and FFPE processed and be available as block(s). The Digital Pathology Lab can advise on the cutting of the sections onto coverslips. Please note, the lab can stain sections from tissue microarray blocks, and this provides a substantially more cost-effective analysis of your samples.
