Speaker Profile

Ph.D., Principal Scientist, 10x Genomics

Biography
Neil leads analysis software pipeline development for the Visium line of spatial transcriptomics products at 10x. He has over 25 years experience in image analysis algorithm development for diverse applications including functional brain imaging, image-guided neurosurgery, neonatal brain MRI, and pathology image analysis. Prior to joining 10x, he was a senior computational biologist at the Broad Institute working on algorithms for de novo genome assembly.

Talk
High-resolution mapping of the breast cancer tumor micro environment
We describe new methods that bring together single-cell gene expression (Chromium Fixed RNA Profiling), spatial transcriptomics (Visium CytAssist), and automated, microscopy-based in situ technology (Xenium In Situ) to better characterize the breast cancer tumor microenvironment leading to new biological insights about the trajectory of disease.
