Spatial Symposium

May 29th., 2024 | 09:30 AM – 17:00 PM

Josep Carreras Institute, Badalona (Barcelona), Spain

The 10x Genomics Spatial Symposium is a one-day event intended for those new to spatial technology as well as seasoned 10x Genomics technology users. This highly informative series of scientific sessions will feature keynote presentations by leading researchers, expert panels, and networking opportunities with peers.

The relationship between cells and their relative locations within tissue is critical to understanding normal development and disease pathology. Spatial transcriptomics is a groundbreaking molecular profiling method that allows scientists to measure all the gene activity in a tissue sample and map where the activity is occurring. Already this technology is leading to new discoveries that are proving instrumental in helping scientists gain a better understanding of biological processes and disease.

During this event, you will see Innovation in spatial transcriptomics methodologies is enabling scientists to get a holistic understanding of cells in their morphological context. In this presentation, you will hear first-hand from 10x Genomics scientists about groundbreaking improvements to the technology and exciting applications showcased by users.
