BILLERICA, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Powering Precision Health (PPH), the internationally acclaimed Summit focused on precision health and the latest in biomarker research, today announced that its Founder and Chairman, and CEO of Quanterix Kevin Hrusovsky, will lead a panel on Tuesday, April 13, 2021, at the Precision Medicine Leaders Summit’s (PMLS) virtual conference on Disrupting Precision Health with Next-Generation Proteomics.
Fulfilling the true promise for precision health lies in the power of the protein biomarker to see and detect disease at its earliest stages. In this panel discussion, Hrusovsky will interview Kevin Knopp, Ph.D., CEO, 908 Devices, whose company is changing the way biochemical analysis is done and provided at the point of need to accelerate the development and production of therapeutics. By democratizing mass spectrometry, the company is leading a revolution in measurement at a critical inflection point for next-generation Proteomics and its promise to disrupt healthcare. Charlotte Teunissen, Ph.D., UMC Amsterdam, and Tatiana Plavina, Ph.D., Takeda, will also join the panel and explore the potential to harness ultra-sensitive protein quantitation to deliver non-invasive blood testing solutions for homecare use, such as those reliant on a capillary (finger prick) sample or dried blood swab rather than a traditional blood draw.
