Dr Maurice Loughrey to speak at Pathology Horizons 2017

portrait-2016_mlWe are pleased to announce that Dr Maurice Loughrey will be presenting at Pathology Horizons in Cairns this August.  He will be one of two Northern Irish speakers joining our  panel!

Dr Loughrey’s talk is entitled:

“Whole slide imaging analysis software in the research setting: a breakthrough in tissue-based biomarker analysis”

Dr Loughrey states that Whole slide imaging offers an array of advantages over conventional glass slide imaging, spanning clinical diagnostics to research applications. These advantages apply to tissue based research which hold few regulatory obstacles.

The focus of this presentation is the application to high throughput biomarker expression research, of novel, open source digital image analysis software, QuPath (https://qupath.github.io).

QuPath provides a powerful and flexible tool for robust, precise and reproducible immunoscoring.
