George Mason University Researchers Partner to Discover Novel Biomarkers for Exposure to Infectious Diseases

Abstract:
Researchers at George Mason University's National Center for Biodefense and Infectious Diseases and its Center for Applied Proteomics and Molecular Medicine are merging their expertise in host-pathogen biology, proteomics and nanotechnology to discover tissue and bloodborne markers that could be used for the early detection of exposure to infectious diseases.

Funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, these efforts may help save the lives of civilians and military forces exposed to biological weapons or other emerging infectious diseases, such as influenza and SARS.
