Addressing Cancer Disparity in Prostate Cancer Through Multiplexing Lens

Speaker: Hiranmayi Ravichandran, MS, Director of Spatial Biology, Weill Cornell Medicine

Ravichandran presents a recent study investigating differences in the tumor microenvironment of prostate cancer based on ancestry and racial disparity. Adding to known genetic-based scoring methods, the study evaluates the proteomic aspects of tumor activity and finds correlations between tumor structure and immune infiltration status that explain why some cancers have higher immunosuppression than others.

In this multi-site study, Imaging Mass Cytometry™ was used to include markers from several related pathways combined into two 38-marker panels.
