Improving clinical development productivity with high-plex proteomics

Improving clinical development productivity with high-plex proteomics

While the vast majority of approved pharmaceuticals target proteins, knowledge of the full complement of proteins that are acted on by drugs, or are potentially druggable, remains incomplete. Assessment of the human proteome is thus increasingly recognized as a priority for successful and cost-effective drug development and clinical research.

Recent remarkable advances in high-plex technology are also bringing proteomics to the fore of precision medicine applications. While increasingly appreciated as powerful tools for target discovery and validation, such high-resolution proteomics approaches can also positively impact many other aspects of the clinical development process, from early through later stages.

This webcast will describe several levers of productivity that proteomics is well-positioned to support, providing evidence for each garnered over many years of innovative collaboration with biotech and pharma. Positive impacts on decision-making that affect economic considerations and ultimate trial success will also be highlighted.

  • Applying proteomics in clinical development and strengths of a high-plex aptamer-based platform
  • Statistical and machine learning approaches to protein models that reflect clinical phenotypes
  • How proteomics applications can move biotech and pharma productivity levers toward improving success rates

DeAunne Denmark, MD, PhD

DeAunne Denmark, MD, PhD, is Senior Director of Translational Medicine and Clinical Development at SomaLogic. She is a translational physician-scientist with specialization in molecular and genomic medicine, and precision approaches to complex chronic illness and rare, undiagnosed, and neuroimmune diseases. For over ten years prior to SomaLogic, she served in multiple roles across healthcare, academia, early-stage ventures, industry, and non-profits to develop and directly apply emerging precision technologies toward transforming clinical research and patient care. At SomaLogic, Dr. Denmark works closely with life sciences and academic clients as well as internal research teams to further develop high-value translational proteomics applications, including as co-lead of an initiative to generate evidence of platform utility in clinical development. She completed her MD and PhD in Behavioral Genetics and Neuroscience through the Medical Scientist Training Program at Oregon Health & Sciences University, supported by an NIH fellowship for work focused on molecular and behavioral systems approaches to understanding complex traits and genetic vulnerability to neuropsychiatric disease.

WebinarAccelerating precision medicine of cancer with SomaScan® proteomics

Proteomics has emerged as the next frontier in precision medicine, and several innovative proteomics platforms have been developed to drive biomarker discovery. We [at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center] are using the currently most comprehensive proteomics technology -- the SomaScan Platform, which measures 7,000 proteins -- to discover and independently validate diagnostic, predictive, and prognostic biomarkers for various cancers.

WebinarA proteomics signature of NASH

There is a high unmet need for non-invasive tests that can robustly and reliably assess NAFLD for diagnosis, prognosis, and monitoring purposes. Large-scale profiling of serum/plasma proteins (proteomics) increasingly demonstrates utility to identify changes that accurately reflect and predict disease states and outcomes, including the fibrosis component of NASH that is driven by disease activity and remains the most robust histological marker of prognosis.
