PPD to Discover Biomarkers for PDL BioPharma
News May 03, 2006
Under the terms of the agreement, PPD's biomarker discovery sciences group will examine specified sample sets utilizing DeepLook™ analysis, its proprietary integrated platform for mass spectrometry-based discovery of biomarkers.
"Identification and implementation of biomarkers can accelerate clinical trials by improving diagnosis, patient selection, and monitoring of disease progression and therapeutic response," said Howard Schulman, vice president of PPD's biomarker discovery sciences.
"We look forward to working with PDL BioPharma to develop biomarkers for its clinical development programs."

Computation and Chemistry Combine to Create World-First Auxetic ProteinNews
A team of chemists at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) has now designed a two-dimensional protein crystal that toggles between states of varying porosity and density. This is a first in biomolecular design that combined experimental studies with computation done on supercomputers. The research, published in April 2018 in Nature Chemistry, could help create new materials for renewable energy, medicine, water purification, and more.
