Spatial Transcriptomics and Proteomics at Any Scale: Duke University
During the seminar we will discuss NanoString’s spatial biology solutions. When selecting a spatial technology, both the level of plex as well as the resolution that the specific application requires need to be considered. Together, the GeoMx DSP and CosMx Spatial Molecular Imager enable broad discovery covering the entire transcriptomic landscape (22,000+ genes) and 150+ proteins in cell populations and 1000 genes and 64+ proteins at the single-cell/subcellular level to interrogate differences in biochemical pathways.

Amy Johnson is a District Sales Manager for the Mid-Atlantic region at NanoString Technologies. Prior to her current role, Amy was a Technical Sales Specialist focused on NanoString Technologies’ GeoMx Digital Spatial Profiler and CosMx Spatial Molecular Imager platforms. Amy earned her PhD in nutritional biochemistry and completed her postdoctoral training in the Department of Nutrition at UNC-Chapel Hill. From fetal brain development to immunometabolism in obesity, she has used in vitro and in vivo model systems as well as human study populations to research the interplay between genetic variation in metabolic pathway enzymes and individual health.
