Description: Disease biomarkers are molecules that can be used to signify a disease state. Recent advances in proteomics, the science that typically examines large ensembles of proteins, have stimulated attempts to use panels of proteins that over- or under express in patients versus health individuals to diagnose diseases and prognosticate patient outcomes. The speaker will discuss his experiences in discovering, identifying, and verifying potential cancer biomarkers.
