SDiPath Trailblazers in AI Series – Leeat Keren
January 23 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Abstract: Tissues are spatially organized ecosystems that are comprised of distinct cell types, each of which can assume a variety of phenotypes defined by coexpression of multiple proteins. To underscore this complexity it is essential to interrogate cellular expression patterns within their native context in the tissue. I will describe technological and computational advancements in multiplexed imaging, discuss challenges and opportunities, and demonstrate its application to study the immune microenvironment in cancer and immune-mediated diseases.
