Taking proteomics to the clinic – biomarker and pathway analysis of patient samples

Only approximately 50% of patients will be successfully diagnosed by genetic analysis and even when a gene is identified, there may be no immediate drug target. Proteomics analysis more...

Link between ATP supply and consumption in the maintenance of the shape of the red blood cell in normal and disease states

The link between the main energy supply (ATP from glycolysis) and its consumption by the cytoskeleton will be studied by using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, compute more...
