Detecting Disease Early: The Game-Changing Role of Proteomics | The Pittcon Podcast Episode 1Welcome to the first episode of the Pittcon Podcast, featuring Neil Kelleher!
In this enlightening discussion, delve into the crucial role proteins play in understanding our complex biology and health conditions. Learn about the power of Fourier transform mass spectrometry (FTMS) in bioanalytics and life sciences. This advanced technology, using a superconducting magnet similar to that in an MRI, enables comprehensive protein measurements, impacting proteomics significantly. Discover the growing application of FTMS in metabolomics, imaging biological tissues, and detecting ever-larger proteoforms. Explore the concept of "Top Down Proteomics," a philosophy born at Cornell University, aiming to holistically understand proteins by first measuring their whole composition. This technique is invaluable in both basic biomedical research and clinical translation, potentially providing potent biomarkers for early disease detection - a need the world desperately seeks.
