A Framework for Cell Atlas Initiatives: The Information Science Behind HuBMAP

In this roundtable moderated by Dr. Grady Carlson of Akoya, HuBMAP bioinformaticians will discuss computational and logistical challenges and resources required to drive HuBMAP efforts to collect and curate information from numerous resource groups. They will discuss standards and processes they rely on, and provide an overview of the computational approaches HuBMAP uses to integrate, visualize and analyze data from many different assays.

Organ Cell Atlas Initiatives: Inside HuBMAP Tissue Mapping Centers

In this webinar, you’ll hear from two HuBMAP investigators who are working on organ cell atlas initiatives. Learn how HuBMAP tissue mapping centers collect samples, design spatial phenotyping experiments, upload highly multiplexed imaging data to the HuBMAP repository, and analyze their data to gain a deeper understanding of the function of single cells and cellular neighborhoods within different organs — enabling further insights into human health and disease.

HuBMAP: Building a Spatial Map of the Human Body — One Cell at a Time

In this roundtable moderated by Dr. Niro Ramachandran of Akoya, HuBMAP investigators will discuss the goals of the HuBMAP consortium, what they’ve accomplished thus far, share their vision for HuBMAP and similar cell atlas consortia, and provide an overview of the working groups developing new protocols. They’ll also discuss how HuBMAP researchers can work with biotechnology companies like Akoya to advance our understanding of human health and disease.

To Spatial Biology Infinity and Beyond: Discovering Novel Multiomic Possibilities

In this GEN webinar, our distinguished guests, Dr. Niro Ramachandran and Dr. Julia Kennedy-Darling will have a live discussion focusing on Akoya’s innovative multiomic solutions and how these solutions can redefine how we think about spatial phenotyping and the infinite possibilities these techniques provide for spatial biology research.

Pushing the Frontiers of CAR T-cell Therapy: A Spatial Analysis of Solid Tumors

Research over the years has determined that the spatial context of the TME is key to understanding cancer and improving its treatment. Spatial analysis of the TME reveals the distribution patterns of cell populations and elucidates the communication between cellular components. David Steffin, an assistant professor at Texas Children’s Hospital/Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, will discuss how to use CODEX (CO-Detection by indEXing), a single-cell spatial phenotyping solution, to characterize the microenvironment of various pediatric tumors and to understand the potential interactions that chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells may elicit.

Location Matters: How Spatial Biology is Driving Discovery

Adding a spatial dimension provides unique and important insights into fundamental questions in biology. The emergence of new cutting-edge techniques, such as high-resolution spectral imaging, lattice light-sheet microscopy, and spatial transcriptomics, allows us to accurately assess the spatial landscape of biological systems at cellular and sub-cellular resolution. Incorporating a spatial element to large-scale analyses of biological processes, small molecule peptides, and disease pathology, has enabled breakthrough discoveries across disciplines in the life sciences. Learn more about spatial technology applied across different topic areas in this exciting Cell Press webinar featuring the work of Jun Huang (University of Chicago), Jun Hee Lee (University of Michigan), and Elizabeth Shank from the (UMass Chan Medical School).
