Lunaphore to host The Spatial Biology Week™ 2022 virtual meeting

LAUSANNE, Switzerland – September 6, 2022 – 5:00 pm (CEST) – Lunaphore, a Swiss life sciences company developing technology to enable spatial biology in every laboratory, today announced the second edition of The Spatial Biology Week™, taking place virtually October 3-7, 2022. After last year’s significant participation with more than 500 worldwide registrants, the 1-week online meeting returns to bring experts from industry and academia together to discuss innovations and insights in the spatial biology field. Registration is free and open to the scientific community.

The events and activities planned around The Spatial Biology Week™ will explore how new, cutting-edge technology solutions in spatial biology can accelerate research and help scientists and clinicians gain a profound knowledge of the underlying pathophysiological states of diseases. These innovative approaches can potentially develop the next generation of personalized diagnostics and therapies by lowering the barriers that currently prevent the broad adoption of spatial biology.

“Aligned with our overarching goal to accelerate spatial biology adoption in labs throughout the world, it is our mission and responsibility to foster collaboration within the scientific community and bring awareness to the latest research and innovation leading the spatial biology revolution”, said Ata Tuna Ciftlik, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of Lunaphore.

Lunaphore’s mission to address the complexity of spatial biology by uniting the scientific community and empowering researchers with wide-ranging knowledge has been welcomed by top-notch scientists and innovators of the field. Confirmed speakers1 include:
