How cells interact with other cells and their environment has proven pivotal to our understanding of, and ability to target, even the most complex of diseases. The intricacies of such information has, until recently, been largely untapped using bulk profiling methods but single-cell analysis and spatial profiling have changed the game. However, this is a fast-moving field and it’s important to keep up to date with the latest technologies, approaches, and analysis methods to get the most out of your experiments.
By registering for our next webinar series, Spatial Biology ONLINE, you will:
- Discover how spatial technologies can best be exploited to uncover novel, more efficacious drug targets.
- Uncover the intricate details of the most complex human tissue systems using the latest single-cell and spatial approaches.
- Dissect the complexities of cancer at the cellular level, understand its vast heterogeneity and how to best analyse the complex spatial datasets generated.
** Please note, by registering for one webinar in the series you will automatically receive access to the subsequent webinars. **

Webinar 1: Spatial omics in deciphering biology and identifying novel drug targets
Thursday 1st December at 3pm GMT/ 4pm CET/ 10am EST
Spatial biology can give the granular insights needed to better understand markers of disease onset and progression and, ultimately, drive our drug discovery efforts towards better drug targets. These technologies have therefore become an invaluable tool for drug hunters and pharmaceutical companies.
In this webinar, the application of spatial technologies in the context of drug discovery will be discussed and include key case studies.
- TALK 1: Spatial analysis to understand disease biology and supporting drug discovery
- Elton Rexhepaj, Director of Data Science, Bioimaging and Computational Pathology, Sanofi
- TALK 2: Spatial proteogenomics approaches for immunotherapy…and COVID-19
- Arutha Kulasinghe, NHMRC Research Fellow, Clinical-oMx Group Leader, The University of Queensland Diamantina Institute
- TALK 3: Using single cell and spatial technology in the developing human brain

Webinar 2: Novel spatial insights in complex systems
Thursday 8th December at 3pm GMT/ 4pm CET/ 10am EST
The spatial organisation of certain systems, like complex tissues such as the brain or the tumour microenvironment, plays a key role in the maintenance of healthy tissues or the progression of diseases.
In this webinar, we highlight ground-breaking research into how spatial information is being generated for the most complex and intricate of systems, and how these can translate into opportunities for future research and clinical intervention.

Webinar 3: Spatial Biology meets cancer: dissecting the complexities of tumours
Thursday 15th December at 3pm GMT/ 4pm CET/ 10am EST
Sponsored by Canopy Biosciences
Research is showing that cancer onset and progression are driven by a complex array of factors. Spatial technologies are increasingly being used to uncover how some of these interactions contribute to the disease.
In this webinar, we will focus on the application of spatial biology to studying cancers and how this is leading to novel findings and opportunities for drug discovery and precision medicine.
