MS Imaging

Deep spatial proteomics



The department of immunodynamics aims to unravel the spatial mechanism regulating the crosstalk of immune cells with the surrounding tissue. Registration algorithms to combine multimodal imaging approaches, such as microscopy and mass spectrometry imaging (MSI), are developed (1). Artificial intelligence is used to deconvolute the data into tissue- and cell specific signals (2) for automated dissection by laser capture microdissection (LMD) (3) and high-sensitivity proteomics (4). Data analysis and integration are performed with python-based computing and automated via the snakemake workflow management (5).
