Objectives of the Workshop:

The objective of the Tissue Array Workshop is to discuss with a panel of TMA experts on how to optimize the use of Tissue Microarrays for Research Projects (e.g. Biomarkers Validation, etc.) and the possibility to use the technology for diagnostic applications.

Particular attention will be given to the establishment of a “High Through-put Tissue Array Integrated Pathology Platform” starting from the design, construction, image analysis tools for automatic scoring and IT platform to manage pathology images. At the end of the workshop, there will be a specific hands-on session dedicated to look at the Galileo Tissue Arrayer, Visiopharm Image Analysis Software and PathXL Pathology Image Management IT Platform.

 

Who should participate:

Senior Pathologists and histopathologists; basic and applied researchers; biotechnologists, pharmacologists and bioinformatics; clinical trial specialists, pathology technicians.
