Session Description: Histochemistry is the science of identifying biomolecules in context of biological structures. The science is moving from qualitative and descriptive to quantitative and precise. Moreover, adjacent tools have been established that provide quantitative data but lack the structural context (-omics). For example, we can identify and enumerate immune cells but we struggle with quantitative descriptors of their place relative to important anatomical structures such as blood vessels, extracellular matrix, and even other cells. This session brings together speakers to talk about data analytics in context of geospatial descriptors and biologists (anatomists, pathologists, physiologists, etc.) who are working with spatial mapping of quantitative data within biological systems.
