Biomarkers 101 Part 2

By AJ Montpetit

Biomarkers 101 Part 2



George Vasmatzis, Ph.D., and John Cheville, M.D., co-directors of the Biomarker Program at the Center for Individualized Medicine at Mayo Clinic, introduce us to the world and work of Biomarkers.

The Biomarker Discovery Program is a multidisciplinary team that includes oncologists, surgeons, pathologists, molecular biologists, bioengineers, bioinformaticians and others. By combining expertise, the program takes a clinical question, and answers it through a four-phase approach: Discovery, experimental validation, preclinical validation and clinical validation.

The Co-Directors answer the following three questions in this video:

  1. How do you identify a Biomarker?
  2. What projects are you currently working on?
  3. What are some challenges you face?


Discover the latest in Biomarkers, and Genomics, at our annual Individualizing Medicine Conferencethis year, October 6-8!
