Tissue imaging mass spectrometry permits high-resolution spatial localization of metabolites, proteins and drugs within tissue sections in situ, allowing assessment of metabolic changes at the cellular level. When mass spectrometry images are overlaid onto conventional histology images it is possible to determine the molecules that correlate with tissue pathology, cell type, drug distribution and toxicity. This technique is particularly applicable to cancer research where molecules can be characterized with tumor cells and their microenvironment, allowing direct therapeutic effects to be assessed. Please join the Yale School of Public Health for this symposium, that will explore advances and challenges in tissue imaging mass spectrometry.
