Biomarkers of Disease

The revolution in mass spectrometry has a major impact on many researchers. Equipped with the latest instrumentation, this group is collaborating with many physician scientists to pursue biomarkers of disease. Current examples include protein biomarkers of lung transplant rejection, kidney transplant rejection, kidney disease in general, obesity, insulin resistance, inflammation, and others. The objectives are to identify biomarkers that can be used for diagnosis or prognosis and to better understand the mechanisms of that disease.
