Goals of Proteomics Biomarkers Discovery Core
The central goal of the CEGIB’s new facility core, Proteomics Biomarker Discovery Core (PBDC), is to provide Center investigators and others with resources and expertise to discover and confirm biomarkers with clinical or public health applications.
The overall goals of the Core are to:
Provide expertise, instrumentation and bioinformatics’ support to promote the biomarker discovery efforts of Center investigators.
Educate Center investigators on the appropriate use of proteomic methodologies for biomarker discovery.
Educate Center investigators as to the proper design of clinical biomarker discovery studies.
Facilitate interaction between Center members and others using the Core to discover biomarkers and to ease transition of discovery efforts to applications. Interact synergistically with the IHSF and BBCB Cores.
