Revolutionizing Global Health Summit (RGHS) – Newton, MA

| April 26, 2013

PE26PAPR13Come and join PerkinElmer’s FREE Revolutionaries for Global Health Summit (RGHS) in Newton MA, May 8-9, and help us in our vision to eradicate devastating diseases like cancer, diabetes and heart disease.

The event will feature six tracks of phenomenal talks from leading researchers, including a track dedicated to disruptive technologies and new thinking in the areas of Tissue Imaging/Molecular Pathology and In Vivo Imaging. We will also be offering a series of workshops on May 9, including:

Half Day Workshop: The Colourful Future: Digital Pathology Tools for Oncology Research

Join PerkinElmer’s tissue imaging team for a workshop on Digital Pathology Tools for Oncology. Based in our applications lab and supported by our specialist team, you will learn about multicolour IHC, staining, imaging and analysis of biomarkers in tissue sections and tissue microarrays. This session is designed for all researchers that are interested in imaging cancer in complex tissues including those working in research pathology, tumor biology and cellular imaging and analysis.

During the workshop you will hear about the developing technologies which are enabling applications that were traditionally thought impossible in research pathology. The agenda will include a presentation on whole slide scanning, tissue microarrayers, multispectral imaging and automated analysis of multiplexed markers in tumors. You will have the opportunity to tour our manufacturing facility, to see some of the applications demonstrated in a hands on session and to meet our experts for a Q&A session.

Half Day Workshop: Advanced In vivo Imaging Techniques & Applications

The In Vivo workshop will introduce new methods in multimodal imaging, low dose microCT scanning and advanced optical techniques. The toolsets discussed will offer a broad range of techniques enabling advanced models within oncology, cardiovascular, osteoporosis, infectious diseases, toxicology and much more. We will introduce cross platform dataset integration, bio-distribution studies, Cerenkov imaging, various tools for tomographic reconstructions, spectral unmixing and in vivo data management.
