Clinical Proteomics

Clinical Proteomics
The world of Clinical Proteomics aims to apply the proteomic discoveries and advances in technologies to patient care. In biomedical research, understanding of the underlying mechanisms of a disease i.e. basic science and its translation to patient care i.e. clinical science is the primary research pipeline that works towards disease management. In the majority of cases, clinical proteomics involves the use of different biological specimens, for e.g. blood, CSF, urine, saliva or tissues. This genre of proteomics applications has been found to be informative for investigation of disease pathobiology and identification of potential surrogate targets in different diseases. Clinical proteomics can also help the clinicians to decide the precise therapeutic interventions leading towards personalized medicine. Successful applications for the utilization of proteomics in the clinical field will be discussed in this session.
