The Angelo lab uses custom built high dimensional imaging technologies and computational approaches to understand the interplay between single cell phenotype and tissue histology in health and disease.
They employ a method known as Multiplexed Ion Beam Imaging (MIBI) that uses secondary ion mass spectrometry to image antibodies tagged with isotopically pure elemental metal reporters. MIBI is capable of analyzing up to 100 targets simultaneously over a five-log dynamic range. Thus, MIBI enables highly multiplexed and sensitive immunohistochemistical analysis of complex tissues. The Angelo Lab applies MIBI to questions in the fields of cancer biology, infectious diseases, immune tolerance, allergy, and the maternal-fetal interface in addition to technology and methods development.
