Welcome and Introduction
Andrew Quong, PhD, Standard BioTools™
Jonathan Irish, PhD, Vanderbilt University
An introduction to our educational and thought-provoking program, in which you will hear about applications, experimental design and data analysis approaches being applied by innovative investigators from academia, biotech and pharma with a focus on immuno-oncology.
Mass cytometry, which uses CyTOF® technology, enables a high-dimensional approach that is well-suited for urgent challenges in human health, including tracking responses to treatment, discovering new populations of clinically relevant cells, characterizing and understanding cell therapies and locating and targeting the cells in tissues.
Presentations also cover the rise of data science and data integration, which are increasingly important, as is the ability to share data early and get scripted analyses that can be run by colleagues and collaborators.
