The Scientist Webinar: Tackling the Challenges Involved with Protein Biomarkers

Protein biomarkers have been hailed as vital stepping stones in the race to personalize medicine. But many hurdles remain to be cleared before their application becomes routine. Currently, protein biomarkers have proven useful in drug discovery and development, as tools for target discovery and evaluation of a drug’s mechanism of action, and in therapies for prevention, early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of disease. Although single markers are in use, more widespread adoption will probably require a multiplexed panel capable of detecting and measuring biomarkers accurately, inexpensively, and easily in biological samples that are highly complex.
