Size matters. Impact of nuclear size on spatial transcriptomics’ results from human cerebral cortex

What encouraged Elyas Mohammadi, a young bioinformatician from Iran, to pursue his doctoral degree at the Medical University of Gdańsk? Follow his story and learn about the innovative research on the human Alzheimer’s disease he is conducting at one of the MUG’s top scientific centres, the International Research Agenda.

Grasp the nature of the so-called spatial transcriptomic analysis and its role in understanding the biology behind this serious disease. Find out why it essential to define the number of brain slices needed to perform such as study.

Elyas Mohammadi

Bioinformatician at the International Research Agenda
Medical University of Gdańsk

Doctoral student and a bioinformatician from Iran working on the Alzheimer's disease. By analysing the postmortum brain slices received from Harvard University with the so-called spatial transcriptomic technique Elyas and his collegues are trying to understand the biology behind this serious illness and determine which genes could trigger it.
