Spatial Phenotyping Grant Program - CODEX

Advance your deep immune profiling projects with spatial context

About the Grant Program

This grant program provided the opportunity for a researcher involved in deep immune profiling projects to obtain a new perspective on their research through the power of CODEX®. The CODEX System provides a solution for spatially resolved, highly multiplexed biomarker analysis to enable the study of different cell phenotypes, and how they interact in situ to impact disease pathology and progression.

Announcing the Grant Recipient

Akoya Biosciences would like to thank all the researchers who submitted applications for this grant program. The quality of abstracts was exceptionally high, and our review team had a difficult task to review the hundreds of abstracts received. After careful consideration we are pleased to announce the grant recipient is:

Dr Inês Sequeira
Group Leader – Barts Charity Lecturer
Institute of Dentistry, Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry
Queen Mary University of London

Project Summary:  To elucidate the functional and spatial intra-tumour heterogeneity of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) and to study the interaction of tumour cells with the microenvironment, in particular the role of specific mutations in promoting epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition and tumour progression.

Congratulations Dr Sequeira!
