GHUCCTS KL2 Symposium "Blood-based Biomarkers of Stroke: A Framework for Using Systems Biology to Characterize Clinical Disease"

The past decade has brought forth an explosion in systems biology research.  This has come about through improved technology and reduced cost to characterize pools of biological material including DNA, RNA, proteins, metabolites, and exosomes.  In this symposium we will focus on using systems biology approaches to identify blood biomarkers of stroke.  This will include strategies to identify biomarkers of stroke etiology, diagnosis, and recovery.  Although the focus will be on stroke, the concepts will apply to biomarkers of other neurologic and clinical diseases. 

In addition to a keynote lecture by Dr. Frank Sharp, the symposium will include the following afternoon sessions:

  • (1) Which biofluid and –omics approach are best for my study?;
  • (2) Effective strategies for recruiting matched control participants;
  • (3) Bioinformatics approaches for handling large –omics data sets.

Please RSVP by Friday, January 18th. Space is limited. Lunch will be provided.

This symposium will also be available via Zoom.
