GenomeWeb: Whole-Transcriptome Spatial Mapping of the Healthy and Infarcted Human Heart

April 30 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am PDT

Sudden cardiac death following myocardial infarction (MI) is one of the leading causes of mortality in the world, resulting in an estimated 4 million to 5 million deaths each year. Recent advances have drastically improved the acute survival of MI, yet long-term survival rates have only marginally improved over the last few years. Researchers at University Hospital Aachen in Germany aimed to address this unmet medical need for novel, long-term MI therapeutic options using the Visium Spatial Gene Expression Solution from 10x Genomics.
