The incredible speed with which the current coronavirus has infected and spread to millions of people across the globe underscores the importance of better understanding the immune response to infectious diseases. The human immune system orchestrates sophisticated and coordinated reactions to foreign pathogens, but appreciating how individual immune cells respond to each challenge is key to uncovering the hidden parts of immunity.

In this GEN webinar, we will discuss the utility of single-cell and spatial multiomics technologies to advance infectious disease and immunology research, highlighting how the scientific community can respond to such events as the COVID-19 pandemic. Our webinar panelist, Dr. Brian Fritz, will take us through a comprehensive assessment of the adaptive immune repertoire and phenotypic immune responses to infectious disease using single-cell sequencing technologies. Additionally, he will tell us how infectious disease researchers can integrate single cell and spatial multiomic technology from 10x Genomics to identify cell states in a sample and map their location within intact tissue. Finally, you will learn about mapping adaptive immunity to antigen specificity and accelerating novel neutralizing antibody discovery with multiomic readouts at single-cell resolution.

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