Speakers
  • Group leader, Cellular Genetics, Wellcome Sanger Institute
    Biography

      Dr. Omer Bayraktar (https://www.sanger.ac.uk/science/groups/bayraktar-group). Group leader in the Wellcome Sanger Institute focused on studying brain cell type diversity and disease using large-scale transcriptomics and screening approaches. The Bayraktar team uses a combination of single cell-genomics, large-scale spatial transcriptomics and high-throughput imaging-based screens to map brain cell types, to identify how glial cells shape neuronal circuits and to discover cellular pathways affected in neurodevelopmental disorders.

      • Sr Application Specialist, Nanostring
        Biography

          Rudy van Eijsden studied Biological Health Sciences at Maastricht University in The Netherlands where he also obtained his PhD in Clinical Genetics. Rudy moved to the VIB MicroArray Facility (now named VIB Nucleomics Core) in Leuven Belgium, first as a post-doctoral scientist within the bioinformatics team, later as a staff-scientist responsible for the project management and consultancy of all microarray, Nanostring nCounter, and NGS RNA-sequencing experiments. Rudy is now with Nanostring, previous as Application Scientists and now as Sr. Application Scientist focusing on the GeoMx Digital Spatial Profiling providing support to scientists all over the world and especially in his home turf in central/north of Europe.


        Abstract
        DATE: September 2, 2020

        Spatial omics is an expanding collection of methods to examine biological molecules in their geographical context. By retaining the precise location of transcripts or proteins within a tissue, spatial methods can further our understanding of mechanisms in health and disease, in areas including cancer biology, immunology and neuroscience. Join us at this webinar, hosted by LabRoots, to learn how spatial information obtained with NanoString’s GeoMx Digital Spatial Profiling solutions, with read-out on Illumina sequencing systems, can lead to novel insights about biological systems.

         

        Learning Objectives:
        • Learn how to combine NanoString GeoMx Digital Spatial Profiler with Illumina sequencing readout to analyze RNA and proteins in their tissue context in a highly multiplexed manner.
        • Learn about the insights spatial profiling provided into the cellular composition and interactions in the developing human brain.

         

         

        Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.

         

        LabRoots is approved as a provider of continuing education programs in the clinical laboratory sciences by the ASCLS P.A.C.E. ® Program. By attending this webinar, you can earn 1 Continuing
