Future Health: Blood proteomics – new opportunities for precise diagnostics and disease prediction

19 March 08:30 - 19 March 10:00

Technological leaps during the last few years have allowed for determining protein profiles from a small drop of blood. Large-scale protein analyses of blood samples reveal new biomarkers for different diseases, indicating that blood profiling is being developed into a powerful tool for monitoring health and disease. 

Welcome to a panel discussion where leading experts explore the new possibilities of more precise diagnostics, prognostics, and prediction using blood proteomics. While the use of genomic profiling is evolving precision medicine in the clinic already today, novel omics tools are on the horizon. Don´t miss the opportunity to learn about what we can expect in the coming years. The questions addressed during the panel discussion include: 

  • What new knowledge can be gained from blood proteomic profiling? 
  • How can the tools be used for early detection of diseases?  
  • How can proteomics be combined with genomics to better understand disease mechanisms and select correct treatments?  
  • What are the main challenges to overcome when implementing new tools in healthcare?
