Extended Interview: Dr. Anna Barker Discusses Cancer Biomarker Research

Abstract:
Now, if you move further into that continuum, so now we're in development - so let's move over to how are we going to deliver these protein biomarkers of genome biomarkers or whatever, we have a program in nanotechnology. It is becoming obvious to us that we are going to have to measure lots of things in cells. And so nanotechnology, as you know, is a science that measures at a very, very small level, much, much smaller than water molecules, for example, or at the size of water molecules, 10 angstroms, you know, very, very small. And so we've developed a program to be able to put lots and lots of these biomarkers onto platforms so that we can measure them in patients - measure large numbers of them in patients in the future.
