Protein Biomarkers in Precision Medicine Colloquium
Join fellow Duke researchers on Friday, November 22 for a day-long event of speakers, panels, and posters covering protein biomarkers in precision medicine!
The use of protein biomarkers in precision medicine is entering an exciting new phase with the alignment of efforts to pair clinical cohorts with detailed phenotypic information, significant improvements in sensitivity of protein assays, and the development of new approaches towards multi-dimensional data analysis. This sea-change means that we may be able to map disease development and assess protein biomarkers in larger scale epidemiologic samples to provide clues to underlying mechanisms of processes such as aging, resilience, and age-related diseases.
At Duke, there are a number of laboratories and core resources involved in various aspects of biomarker development and use. However, the advent of new technologies and their broader application demands a more coordinated approach in order to ensure the efficient and cost-effective use of patient and core resources. Towards this end, we are hosting a day-long colloquium that will be broadly accessible to Duke basic and clinical investigators to discuss study design, platforms, and applications in the field of protein biomarkers for precision medicine.

Lunch will be provided and prizes will be awarded for the poster session.
