Although the concept of studying cells within the context of their location in tissues has been around for decades, the recent emergence of new technologies in spatial biology is ushering the field into a whole new era. Spatial biology, and the increased interest being unlocked in understanding cellular organization at the single-cell level, have all the hallmarks of the next omics revolution.

In this episode of GEN Live, we’ll talk to three experts, Dr. Rong Fan, Dr. Jasmine Plummer, and Dr. Nicholas Banovich, about where spatial biology is now, and where it might be heading. They’ll explain how they are using spatial biology in their own research, break down the new spatial technologies, and discuss some of the challenges that lie ahead for the field.

A live Q&A session followed the presentation, offering a chance to pose questions to our expert panelists.
