Spatial Biology – Highlights
How To Choose a Spatial Biology Platform for Your Lab
In this article, Jason T. Gammack looks at some of the earliest applications benefiting from spatial biology techniques and walks through several key considerations to help scientists select the method that’s most appropriate for their experimental needs.
Download this infographic to discover how spatial biology can elucidate biological activity in relation to environment, is utilized in neuroscience and cancer research, and can be explored using various technologies.
Single-Cell, "Multi-Omics" Analysis Uncovers a New Stage in Immune Cell Formation
A research team from The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute has adopted a single-cell, multi-omics approach to explore this question, focusing particularly on T and B lymphocyte formation. They discovered a new stage in lymphocyte development, information which the researchers say could "enrich future studies of the immune system". We wanted to know more.
Pancreatic Cancer Cells Switch Fuels in the Absence of Sugar in Mice
Cancer cells can adapt to use uridine as a fuel source when access to glucose is limited, reports a new study from the University of Michigan.
Study Links Obesity With Immune Evasion of Oral Cancers in Mice
Researchers have identified a mechanism in mice for how obesity affects some oral cancers’ ability to escape from the immune system.
Novel Liquid Biopsy Detects ctDNA in 30% More Patients With Pancreatic Cancer
Researchers report on the development of a novel ctDNA-based liquid biopsy approach, Aneuploidy in Circulating Tumor DNA (ACT-Discover), that identifies subclonal copy number alterations in pancreatic cancer evolution.
Study Measures the Link Between Nerve Density and Oral Cancer
A team of researchers has identified that increased nerve density in the oral tumor microenvironment is correlated with poorer clinical outcomes.
Small Trial of Cancer-Killing Virus With Immunotherapy Shows Positive Results
Results of a Phase 1/2 clinical trial suggest that oncolytic viral therapy and immunotherapy were safe and improved survival in a subset of patients with recurrent glioblastoma.
Personalis, National Cancer Center Hospital East and Ono Collaborate To Better Predict Immunotherapy Response for Rectal Cancer
Personalis, Inc., National Cancer Center and Ono Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. have announced they have entered into a collaborative agreement to examine the efficacy and safety of nivolumab, an immune checkpoint inhibitor, for resectable rectal cancer with mismatch repair deficiency.
Certis Oncology Solutions Announces Three Abstracts Accepted for Presentation at AACR Annual Meeting
Certis Oncology Solutions has announced that three abstracts have been accepted for presentation at the upcoming American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting.
Vutara VXL Super-Resolution Microscope
The Vutara VXL workstation incorporates Bruker’s single-molecule localization microscopy (SMLM) technology in a streamlined system to enable advanced spatial biology research. When combined with Bruker’s fluidics unit, it enables multiplexed imaging for targeted, sub-micrometer multiomics.
