Spatial biology at YOUR scale

To improve cancer treatment and patient outcomes, it’s critical to elucidate tumor biology in all of its complexity. We are thrilled to support you in that mission by providing unprecedented access to the TME and enabling discoveries at your scale.

Here are some ways for you to engage with us at the event:

  • Schedule a meeting with our experts
  • Visit our exhibit booth (#247)
  • Peruse our posters
  • Attend our Spotlight Theater

Not attending AACR in person? You can sign up to receive recordings of our talks and poster presentations following the event.

Spotlight Theater: Spatial Biology 2.0: Spatial Insights & Precision Medicine at Unprecedented Scale

Date: Monday, Apr 8, 2024
Time: 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Location: Theatre A, Sails Pavilion (Above Exhibit Hall)

Learn how researchers are seeing the tumor microenvironment like never before, elucidating the mechanisms of cancer treatment response, and paving the way for spatial biology to impact patient outcomes. Hear from Dr. Pascal Bamford, about Akoya’s new Spatial Biology 2.0 solutions which build on the company’s proven, highly-cited platforms and enable spatial insights and ultimately, precision medicine at unprecedented scale. Next, 2023 Cure Cancer Researcher of the Year Dr. Arutha Kulasinghe and Dr. Suzanne Coberly from Bristol Myers Squibb will share how Akoya technologies – from PhenoCycler-Fusion 2.0 to PhenoImager HT 2.0 and PhenoCode Panels – are deployed across the research continuum, from ultrahigh-plex discoveries to actionable signatures.
