Topic: Paving the Road from Research to the Clinic
How to quickly move from an idea to a clinical application? Researchers need freedom to pursue an idea, efficient automation to speed up their test program, and a clear path into the clinical environment so patients can benefit from new discoveries sooner. This presentation shows how Leica Biosystems Advanced Staining Research Platforms are paving the way to successful clinical applications
Marie-Louise Loupart, Image Analyst Specialist
Topic: Software Tools for Finding Tumour in Brightfield and Fluorescent Slides
One of the main questions asked about a tissue section – is it normal? Identification of morphological changes relies on Pathologists’ expertise. Not all researchers have regular access to a Pathologist to ensure they are studying the regions of interest in tissue. The Aperio GENIE pattern recognition software is a Machine Learning tool that has proven useful when researchers don’t have regular access to a Pathologist. However, Aperio GENIE doesn’t have the accuracy to work in a clinical setting to assist Pathologist’s in their day job; instead Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools are demonstrating some promising results which in future may be of use in a clinical setting. This presentation will take us along the path from research tools to clinical tools.

Topic: Digital Pathology – How can Leica Biosystems Digitize my Assay?
Translational research requires a diverse and open approach to discovery on Pathology tissue slides. A key requirement being not to limit the range of approaches open to today’s scientists. In this talk we will explain how Leica Biosystems and their evolving digital pathology platforms, are designed to grow with the research, from scanning, managing and finally extracting data from experimental slides (analysis will be explored more fully in the accompanying talk). As research transitions to the clinical laboratory, the requirements change as do the demands on the solutions and a different approach is required. Here we explain how Leica Biosystems portfolio is being developed to align with this chain of discovery, from bench to Clinic.
