Spatial Biology Workshop
Best Practices for Utilizing NanoString’s GeoMx DSP in the Resource Facility Setting

March 27, 2022 | Location: Pasadena Room

Join NanoString for the first annual Spatial Biology Workshop at ABRF. Collaborate with resource facility labs from across the country to share best practices for utilizing GeoMx Digital Spatial Profiler (DSP). Journey through the GeoMx DSP workflow hearing from fellow core labs and NanoString spatial experts who will share tips & tricks along the way. Topics include GeoMx project intake, experimental design, morphology markers, ROI selection, data analysis, and much more.

Guest Speakers Include:

Maria Hernandez, Ph.D, Biologist​, NCI Collaborative Protein Technology Resource​

Grant M. Barthel, Spatialomics Lead, University Imaging Centers, University of Minnesota

The event will also include a special preview of the brand new single-cell and subcellular spatial technology, CosMx Spatial Molecular Imager (SMI). Both current GeoMx DSP owners and interested resource facility personnel are welcome. Lunch provided, happy hour to follow.
