SEATTLE (PRWEB) September 09, 2020
NanoString Technologies, providers of technology that enables a wide variety of basic research and translational medicine applications, will be hosting Advancing Science: A Spatial Biology Conference, in three time zones on September 15, 2020, (Asia-Pacific – September 16). This one-day virtual event is a forum for research professionals, scientists, and clinicians from around the world to come together and further their learning and understanding of recent discoveries in spatial biology. Spatial technologies are enabling new discoveries that advance our understanding of biology, including viral host immune response and the tumor immune microenvironment.
The conference will begin with plenary speaker Peter Sorger, Ph.D., Otto Krayer Professor of Systems Biology at Harvard Medical School, Head of the Harvard Program in Therapeutic Sciences (HiTS) and Director of its Laboratory of Systems Pharmacology Harvard Medical School. Thereafter, the day will split into three scientific tracks: COVID-19 research, spatial genomics research and spatial genomics data analysis. An interactive panel roundtable with all the speakers involved is scheduled at the end of the COVID-19 research and Spatial Genomics Data Analysis scientific tracks.
During the program, attendees at the virtual conference will also be able to visit the exhibit hall, view posters, network with company representatives and colleagues, attend Live GeoMx Interactive Experience session and participate in the NSTG Gamification activity. The conference will offer a certificate of attendance, downloadable after the events’ completion.
