About us

Birmingham Tissue Analytics is based in the Institute of Translational Medicine and provides a high level digital spatial imaging service for academic-led research and industry contracts.

These capabilities enable researchers to build a thorough picture of cellular composition in both inflammatory diseases and cancer, identifying shared and distinct mechanisms and targets across diseases and delivering outcomes for novel early phase clinical trials that can accelerate successful development of precision-based therapeutics. Implementation of GCP standards forms a key part of the delivery of our analytic capabilities. Pre-clinical collaborative research can be conducted to a standard suitable to progress to clinical trials, alongside development of novel and robust tissue-based clinical trial outcomes on which to base the success of novel therapeutics.​
