17nov1:00 pm2:00 pmAnalysis of CODEX and other Hi-Plex Images in HALO


Event Details

Please join us for a brief overview of NCI’s HALO cloud deployment and the first in a series of talks describing HALO-enabled research. Dr. Noemi Kedei, MD, CCR, will cover examples of using HALO to analyze highly multiplex CODEX images, and images acquired for DSP GeoMx and RNAScope.

NCI’s HALO is an enterprise-wide 2D image management and analysis platform, hosted in NCI’s AWS Cloud One environment. The HALO software supports cell-based, object-based, and area-based analysis of brightfield and fluorescence images for research and clinical digital pathology, as well as numerous multiplex and hi-plex applications. The platform is an outgrowth of CBIIT’s Intramural NCI STRIDES-based Transition and Exploration Program (IN STEP), aimed at developing broadly useful research infrastructure in the cloud to support NCI’s Intramural Research Program (IRP). NCI’s HALO eliminates the need for numerous groups to maintain separate but similar infrastructure for digital pathology (including contracts and computational workstations), and enables interoperability, collaboration, access to elastic computation, and efficient use of shared resources. NCI HALO supports collaborations with Investigators from other ICs, and there is capacity available for other ICs to demo the platform.
