Thematic seminar “Spatial transcriptomics”

26 March à 14h00 - 18h00

As part of the second thematic seminar organized by the Department of Biological and Medical Sciences (SBM) “Spatial Transcriptomics”, Jeffrey R. Moffitt from Harvard Medical School and Dieter Henrik Heiland from the Medical Center of the University of Friborg will give a lecture.

This event is organized by Majid Khatib, head of team 02 – Reprogramming of tumor activity and the associated microenvironment (Rhytme) of our BRIC unit and Thomas Daubon of the IBCG, in collaboration with the department’s Seminars GT.

📆 Tuesday March 26 at 2 p.m.

📌amphitheater of the BBS building, Carreire campus, 2 rue Dr Hoffmann Martinot Bordeaux.

Spatial transcriptomics is an innovative method that allows mapping gene expression at a spatial scale in complex biological tissues. Unlike traditional techniques which measure gene expression from homogenized tissue extracts, spatial transcriptomics makes it possible to preserve information on the cellular localization of messenger RNAs. This emerging field offers significant advantages for understanding pathologies. By mapping gene expression within tissues, researchers can identify specific cell types involved in disease processes, understand the interactions between these cells, and reveal the molecular alterations associated with diseases. Spatial transcriptomics offers a new perspective for studying pathologies by allowing detailed visualization of gene expression inside tissues, which paves the way for a better understanding of disease mechanisms and more targeted therapeutic strategies.

In this context, Majid Khatib (BRIC) and Thomas Daubon (IBGC), the organizers, invited Jeffrey R. Moffitt (Harvard Medical School) and Dieter Henrik Heiland (Medical Center University of Freiburg). For an hour and a half, these experts will address this topic of general interest for all members of the department. For this second edition, doctoral and post-doctoral students are encouraged to present 5-minute flash communications in order to stimulate discussion with the speakers and the audience. They can also share preliminary results. Are you a researcher and would like to chat with guests?
