Dr. Gerszten's MGR presentation and discussion with our class has given me much insight on the new technologies that will help us discover new biomarkers, proteomics, and metabolomic that could give rise to potential disease pathways thanks to translational research. These discoveries open doors to novel mechanisms, that have not been properly established before, can further lead us to potential therapeutic advances. For instance, Dr. Gerszten's group's discovery of the correlation of key amino acids and diabetes has led to further findings in regards to the underlying mechanism of diabetes which could potentially lead to novel therapies in the future. What I took from this presentation is that the impact of proteomics and metabolomics on biomedical research is not only relevant to disease states but is of most importance for novel discovery of mechanism pathways and potential therapeutics.
