RNA expression reflects the state of a biological system, it presents an ideal choice of biomarker and has become a significant focus for research.  In order to utilize the full potential of these biomarkers, there is an unprecedented demand for the next generation of more effective tools for routine RNA biomarker analysis. This demand is particularly acute when it comes to in situ techniques, in order to map important pathways and networks within the morphological context.

This symposium features discussions by scientists who have successful applied RNA ISH in their cancer and infectious disease research. Presenters will share how their work has been impacted by a new dimension of information—gene expression with spatial resolution. 

We invite every NIH scientists who are applying molecular methods in disease research and interested in elevating their research with new RNA analysis technologies.

Elevate your research using
gene expression combined with spatial resolution
