Advanced Applications of Targeted Clinical Proteomics Methods Webinar

Credit 1.0 ACCENT Credit
Duration 1 Hour
Date OCT 8, 2020 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM Eastern
Level Intermediate
Audience Laboratory professionals, research scientists, students, and anyone with an interest in proteomics

REGISTRATION AND FEE

FREE for members of the Proteomics & Metabolomics and Mass Spectrometry and Separation Sciences (MSSS) Divisions. Please register here.

DESCRIPTION

This live webinar will provide practical examples of how targeted proteomics assays are applied in the context of translational research as well as in a clinical laboratory setting. The speakers will: 1) provide an overview and technical evaluation of immuno-PCR, an emerging targeted proteomics application; 2) discuss a targeted mass spectrometry-based proteomics approach to studying high-density lipoprotein (HDL) in the context of brain pathology; and 3) describe the methodological workflow of a mass spectrometry ACTH assay as an arbiter of clinically discordant immunoassay results. The webinar will also include a Q & A session.

WEBINAR OUTLINE

  1. Beyond mass spectrometry: Could multiplex proteomics technologies be the future of clinical chemistry?
  2. What’s good for the heart is good for the brain: Proteomics of HDL
  3. A plasma ACTH mass spectrometry assay as an arbiter of clinically discordant immunoassay results
