Webinar | Decoding Tumors with Mass Cytometry

Jonathan Irish discusses systems-level characterization of cells in tumors

Mass cytometry holds great promise for multiparameter interrogation of complex cellular microenvironments from precious translational research samples. Here, Jonathan Irish, PhD, describes the use of mass cytometry to provide a systems-level characterization of cells in healthy human tissues and solid tumors. The state of the art in single-cell cancer biology is discussed, including tissue collection, technical and biological quality controls, analysis of cell signaling (phospho-flow) and computational approaches.

Watch the webinar, "Decoding human tumors and healthy tissue with mass cytometry," to:

  • Hear the value of mass cytometry for deep profiling of single cells isolated from healthy tissue and tumors.
  • Learn proven techniques for single-cell isolation, cell processing for mass cytometry and quality control.
  • Explore the use of mass cytometry along with other technology platforms to implement a systems-level approach to tissue characterization.

The main focus of Jonathan Irish’s research is to understand how changes at the single-cell level alter signaling in healthy cells and lead to therapy-resistant populations in human diseases. His experimental approach has focused on measuring signaling events in individual cells from primary tissues, including human tumors.
