Tackling Challenges in Neurodegenerative Research: Analysing Gene Expression with RNAscope


The nervous system is one of the most complex tissues composed of numerous cell types/subtypes with delicate topological characteristics, presenting unique challenges to traditional gene expression analysis techniques. Interrogation of the complex nervous system, especially the brain, requires a highly sensitive, specific, and multiplexed spatial approach with single-cell resolution.

This webinar will present the RNAscope in situ hybridization (ISH) technology and include applications of this powerful method to detect gene expression within the spatial and morphological tissue context. Features will include multiplexing capabilities, visualisation and quantification of virtually any gene from any genome in any tissue with unprecedented specificity and sensitivity, thorough characterisation of cell populations within the nervous system.


Speakers:

  • Bradley Spencer-Dene Ph.D (Bio-Techne North European Field Application Scientist)
  • Noelle Chiong (Hong Lab, UK DRI at UCL)
  • Jenna Gregory (ECAT SCREDS Clinical Lecturer and Honorary StR in Histopathology, University of Edinburgh)

Thursday 2 July, 13:00 - 14:00 BST

This event is open to UK DRI researchers and support staff only. Registration and associated Zoom links will be distributed via Centre Manager emails nearer the time of the event.
