Following the success of our International Spatial Biology Congress: Europe for the last 2 years, we are delighted to be hosting a Spatial Biology event in America. In this rapidly developing field, spatial biology provides significant potential for creating novel clinical insights. Recent technological advancements in spatial biology have provided insights into new strategies to prevent and treat disease, particularly the interactions between the tumour and the tumour microenvironment in cancers to target patients to more specific treatments. New spatial research has focused more on the analysis of the transcriptome, epigenome, and metabolomics as well as gene and protein expression to discover how these influence cellular and molecular distributions and interactions.

With a single track over two days, featuring more than 30 presentations, you will discover the latest developments in spatial omics and techniques, bioinformatics, and spatial biology data analysis, as well as the application of spatial biology to disease and drug development. There will also be a dynamic exhibition room filled with providers showcasing their spatial technologies with ample networking opportunities, an interactive panel discussion, roundtables, and a poster competition.

Are you working at the intersection of Spatial Biology and Digital Pathology?

Immediately before this meeting (May 7 & 8), at the same venue, you can join us for the Digital Pathology & AI Congress: USA. Full details are here. Contact maria@globalengage.co.uk for a discounted package to attend both meetings.

    Sustainability

    Venues with Sustainability Goals

    We are committed to selecting venues with more sustainable practices. These will cover energy supply, food & waste, water use, recycling and plastics. The Marriot La Jolla is Tripadvisor GreenLeaders Certified. The hotel website shows a carbon footprint of 11.6 kgs per room night. The hotel footprint calculator Greenview reveals that the US average is 17.6 kgs per night (higher for 4 & 5* hotels.)

    Poster Presentation

    Whether looking for funding, employment opportunities or simply wanting to share your work with a like-minded and focused group, presenting a poster is an excellent way to join the heart of this meeting. Your presentation will be displayed in a dedicated area, with other posters from industry and academia.
    Please note that there is limited space available and poster space is assigned on a first-come first served basis (subject to checks and successful registration).

    POSTER COMPETITION
    We are holding a poster competition where two entries will be selected, and each given a 15-minute speaking position on the conference agenda. Representatives from solution provider organisations or experts already speaking on the program are not eligible to enter the competition but are welcome to present posters at the meeting as normal.
