Omics in translational biomarker research – Michelle Hill

Bio ‐ molecules that are useful indicators or predictors of disease or therapeutic response are key tools for diagnosis and an integral part of personalized medicine. The power of omics to interrogate a broad range of molecules in one experiment is particularly suited to biomarker discovery. This presentation will first outline the types of biomarkers and then discuss some of the research methodologies, with particular focus on the challenges in translating research outcomes to clinical application, and some strategies to overcome these.
