Tissue Phenomics® at Work for Immuno-Oncology and Transplantation Medicine, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

TORONTO, ON --(Marketwired - June 09, 2016) - Join industry experts Friedrich Feuerhake, Consultant in Neuropathology and Head of Digital Pathology Group at Hanover Medical School, Germany, and Dr. Ralf Schönmeyer a Senior Research Scientist at Definiens AG, as they discuss how immuno-oncology and transplantation medicine share the medical need for robust, immune cell-based biomarkers extracted from tissue biopsies. There will be two live broadcasts on Monday, June 27, 2016 at 9am EDT (2pm BST/UK) and 1pm EDT.

In an interdisciplinary approach, the Tissue Phenomics methodology is applied to mine clinically annotated image data. We provide proof-of-concept that spatial distribution of immune cells can provide valuable hints towards novel transplantation biomarkers. Correlating spatial immune cell patterns in protocol biopsies with the yearly loss of Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR), we show that features, previously not considered to be of prognostic value, can be discovered. The potential of Tissue Phenomics technology to exploit the full predictive power of image-based information is currently investigated in the disease-overarching SYSIMIT consortium.
