Mapping the Spread of Infections in the Body

Spatial biology studies allow scientists to gain deeper insights into infectious disease transmission and pathobiology across various tissues.

Infectious diseases like COVID-19 can severely damage various organs. Understanding how infectious agents spread from the lungs to the rest of the body and their behavior in different organs and tissues leads scientists to develop more effective treatments. In this webinar, Arutha Kulasinghe will discuss how his team uses spatial transcriptomics to uncover the mechanisms of SARS-CoV-2-induced effects on multiple organs and tissues. 

Topics to be covered

  • Characterizing host responses to respiratory viral infections in multiple organs
  • Building a spatial organ atlas for understanding the pathobiology of COVID-19

Wednesday, May 31st, 2023 | 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM Eastern Time
This webinar will be available to view live and on demand.
