    "Visualizing gene expression and genetic variations in the tissue environment"

    The RNAscope® technology is an advanced in situ hybridization platform that allows for the visualization of single-cell gene expression, targeting mRNA and ncRNA sequences directly in tissues. This highly sensitive and specific approach permits the detection of biomarkers in both the tumor and stroma, as well as secreted molecules, such as cytokines and chemokines. In this seminar we will examine applications of the RNAscope assay in oncology and immuno-oncology.

    Host: Dr. Peter Greer (greerp@queensu.ca)

    Everyone is welcome!
