Es werden Online Sessions abgehalten, die erste am Montag, den 4. Mai von 12h30 bis 14h. Ich werde dann auf bestimmte - aber nicht alle - Aspekte näher eingehen. Es wäre daher gut, wenn Sie mir schreiben, welche Gebiete Sie besonders interessieren, welche Folien Sie gerne im Detail besprechen würden, oder wo es Unklarheiten oder spezielle Fragen gibt. Vorlesungsunterlagen wurden auf Moodle hochgeladen.


Aims, contents and method of the course

Biomarkers have been used for diagnostic and prognostic purposes for many years now. The important group of stratification markers has been added rather recently. These markers enable an individualized therapy selection, as well as the monitoring of therapy successes, which is highly desirable for patients. However, before such biomarkers can be applied, suitable candidates have to be identified and subsequently validated. Basically there are two different methods for this, namely antibody- and mass spectrometry-based procedures. In this lecture the advantages and disadvantages of the different approaches will be discussed.
