Identifying biomarkers for IBD diagnosis and management

Driving biomarker discovery is key as proteomics emerges as the next frontier in precision medicine.

Identifying biomarkers for IBD siagnosis and management

In this webinar, you’ll hear how proteomics technology can enhance the identification of biomarkers for the accurate diagnosis of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, as well as the identification of biomarkers that predict response to TNF inhibitors and other biologics in patients with IBD.

This webinar will explore how reliable, non-invasive proteomic biomarkers are pivotal for personalized treatment and increasing our knowledge of biological pathways involved in disease. Our expert speaker will also present an assay platform that can measure 11,000 biologically relevant proteins in the search for biomarkers.

Attend this webinar to:

  • Explore the role of biomarkers in tailoring medical care and enhancing precision in pediatric IBD treatment
  • Uncover serum proteins intricately linked to TNF inhibitor response, gaining insights for improved therapeutic decision-making in IBD
  • Discover how the SomaScan® 11K Assay transforms non-invasive biomarker discovery, revolutionizing differential pediatric IBD diagnosis

Towia A. Libermann, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor of Medicine in the Department of Medicine, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School. Dr. Libermann is also the Director of the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Genomics, Proteomics, Bioinformatics and Systems Center and of the Dana Farmer/Harvard Cancer Center Cancer Proteomics Core. Dr. Libermann is an internationally recognized translational investigator with a strong track record in precision medicine, biomarker discovery and translational studies of immunological diseases and cancer. Dr. Libermann’s lab is focused on applying multi-omics approaches to identify proteins or genes that may be exploited as biomarkers or targets for therapeutic intervention, starting with his seminal discovery of EGF receptor gene amplifications in glioblastomas. Dr. Libermann has been at the forefront of the next generation of proteomics and plays a central role in driving biomarker discovery to the next level. Libermann’s group uses the aptamer-based SomaScan proteomics platform, a modified aptamer-based high multiplex immunoassay platform, to discover and validate diagnostic, predictive, and prognostic biomarkers for various diseases using liquid biopsies such as extracellular vesicles and body fluids. Using the latest in machine learning, Libermann’s group has developed predictor models for applications in early detection, disease diagnosis, prediction of therapeutic response, monitoring of disease progression, and outcome prediction. Dr. Libermann received his PhD in Immunology in 1986 from the Weizmann Institute of Science and Technology, Rehovot and did a postdoctoral fellowship at the Whitehead Institute, Cambridge.

WebinarUtilizing proteomic strategies to uncover novel biomarkers and mechanisms in heart failure 

Plasma proteomics is a powerful approach for discovering novel protein biomarkers of drug toxicity in various disease contexts. One such biomarker in cardiovascular disease is apolipoprotein M (ApoM), which plays a crucial role in lipid metabolism and transport and is known to have both anti-inflammatory and cardioprotective effects in the body. Studying ApoM using proteomics requires various approaches to understand its expression, modifications, interactions, and functions in the proteome.
