Predicting cancer immunotherapy response by highly multiplexed tumor imaging

spatial biology and cancer research

The tumor microenvironment (TME) – the main site of tumor-immune cell interactions – crucially regulates antitumoral immunity and immunotherapy response. Watch this on-demand webinar to discover how highly multiplexed microscopy can be used to thoroughly characterize tumor microenvironment cell types, their spatial interactions, and the tumor architecture to predict patient response to immunotherapy in various cancers.
