The Center for Single Cell Biology (CSCB) invites you to attend a hybrid event to discuss spatial biology of the tissue microenvironment. Mei Zhang, MD, director of the CSCB's Service Core, and guest speakers from Akoya Biosciences will give a contextual understanding of cellular neighborhoods and intercellular relationships. They will explain how new technology, PhenoCycler^TM^, available at the CSCB Service Core enables high-dimensional spatial phenotyping, its applications, uses in current and future research, and how researchers can access this new service.

  • Continental breakfast will be served.
  • Space is limited. Please follow CHOP's mask and social distancing guidelines.
  • If attending live, Room 124 on the Abramson Building's first floor opens at 9:30 a.m.

Please register via Eventbrite, indicating virtual or in-person.

The CSCB provides a unified research infrastructure for the single-cell research community at CHOP, driving scientific discovery and advancement of pediatric patient care by harnessing the power of single-cell technologies.

Speaker: Mei Zhang, MD
Service Core Director, Center for Single Cell Biology at CHOP

Dr. Zhang received her MD from Peking University Health Science Center and her PhD in Pathobiology and Molecular Medicine from the University of Cincinnati. After finishing her postdoctoral training at the University of Michigan, Dr. Zhang worked as a senior scientist at Pfizer, and then as an assistant professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics and a research scientist at the University of Louisville Genomics Core before joining the CSCB at CHOP. Dr. Zhang brings more than four years of experience in leading the development and implementation of cutting-edge next generation and single cell sequencing technologies in an academic setting, with proven success in offering high-quality services to the local and regional research community.

Speaker: Avik Mukherjee, PhD
Technical Applications Scientist, Akoya Biosciences

At the University of Alabama in Birmingham, Dr. Mukherjee completed his postdoctoral research fellowship, he was a member of the medical tumor board, and he participated in investigator-initiated clinical trial studies. He joined Akoya from Hunt Optics, an Olympus US microscopy distributor, focusing on clinical microscopy sales and technical support.

Speaker: Roya Bashier
Reagent Sales Specialist, Akoya Biosciences

Bashier received her bachelor's degree in Human Biology from Stanford University. She conducted discovery-based research on neural activation pathways in correlation to behavior and its involvement with epigenetic changes over time. At Akoya, Bashier has held positions in research and development for PhenoCycler™ technology, technical and scientific support, and sales.
