Event Details

In the past years, we have witnessed one of the most exciting and fast-paced technology breakthroughs in the history of life science and medicine – the emergence of spatial omics, which is poised to fuel the next wave of biology revolution. Spatial omics has the potential to dissect how neural networks in the human brain perform computing, which may allow for a high-resolution biomolecular and cellular map of each tumor, thus revealing its Achilles' heel for personalized treatment.


On July 6, Rong Fan, Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Yale University, will look at the current state of spatial omics technologies, then focus on a new platform developed in his lab at Yale. He will discuss the boundary-pushing efforts to apply spatialomics to clinical tumor tissue mapping, and finally discuss how this platformtechnology can lead to emerging opportunities and future perspectives in basicbiology and clinical medicine.

    Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Yale University

    Dr. Rong Fan is Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Yale University. His research focuses on the development and deployment of single-cell and spatial multi-omics technologies, often based on microfabricated tools, to study normal development and human diseases including cancer and autoimmunity. A microchip technology his laboratory developed for simultaneous measurement of 42 immune effector proteins in single cells, which remains the highest multiplexing to date for a single-cell protein secretion assay, has been commercialized and widely used by >100 pharmaceutical companies and medical centers in the U.S. and around the world. Recently, his laboratory developed a novel NGS-based spatial omics technology called DBiT-seq for spatially resolved transcriptome mapping, high-plex protein mapping, and spatial epigenome sequencing, which may find applications in a wide range of biomedical research fields. He is co-founder of IsoPlexis, Singleron Biotechnologies, and AtlasXomics. He is an elected fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) and a senior member of the National Academy of Inventors.
