Proteomics Experts Unite for EPIC-XS

Blog

The European Proteomics Infrastructure Consortium providing access (EPIC-XS) consists of a network of experienced research groups that share one common goal: to facilitate the development and sustainability of proteomics explorations to researchers within the European Union. We spoke with Martina O’Flaherty from the EPIC-XS project office to learn more.

The Evolving Field of Cancer Biomarkers
Article

Given the complexity of cancer, it’s arguably unlikely that single molecules will work as clinically meaningful biomarkers for cancer. Today, biomarker discovery involves detecting patterns – characteristics or phenotypes that can be measured and monitored throughout a patient’s journey. Here, we look at two approaches being explored in this evolving field.

Sensitivity vs Specificity
Article

When developing diagnostic tests or evaluating results, it is important to understand how reliable those tests and therefore the results you are obtaining are. By using samples of known disease status, values such as sensitivity and specificity can be calculated that allow you to evaluate just that.
