Dr. Gerszten's presentation and discussion with our class was a great reminder about how science and medicine are so tightly intertwined, and how advancements in one field can have drastic impacts on another. The improvement in sensitivity and efficiency of mass spectrometry has incredible implications for the potential to bring a more personalized treatment to patients that could reveal aspects of their conditions that we may have never imagined before this technology. I found it striking how such a minute portion of a patients blood sample after it is processed to be usable in mass spec can reveal so many correlated factors to the development of disease. I can only imagine how much the technology may be able to advance to learn even more about a wide variety of diseases. The future of treatments looks very promising with people like Dr. Gerszten pushing the boundaries of our current knowledge!
