Is massive scale proteomics causing a paradigm shift in biomarker discovery?

ABSTRACT

In this 45-minute talk, Dr. Stefánsson will discuss the largest population proteomics study ever performed to help provide more insight on disease and health outcomes. This collaborative research assembled expertise from deCODE Genetics and SomaLogic to combine the study of genetic and protein diversity to characterize disease biomarkers in the human population. The data from this type of proteomic study will inform drug discovery and development as well as improvements in health management. You will learn about:

  • The high-throughput technologies that made this study possible
  • The application of population proteomics in diagnosis and management of common and rare diseases

Optimizing platforms for surgical specimen collection and deep human phenotyping was used to enhance protein biomarker identification using proteomic tools. A series of studies using human eye fluids has helped to diagnose inflammatory retinal disease, select personalized therapies, stage cancer, and point to new therapeutic strategies. These approaches can be broadly applied to human surgical disease.
