Personalized Medicine: Our Mission
The Center for Applied Proteomics and Molecular Medicine’s (CAPMM) mission is to:
- Create new technologies and make basic science discoveries in the field of disease pathogenesis
- Apply these discoveries and technologies to create and implement strategies for disease prevention, early diagnosis and individualized therapy.
The primary emphasis of our disease research is cancer, but new technologies developed in the center are being applied to a number of important human diseases including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity, as well as liver, ocular, neurodegenerative and infectious diseases.
Personalized medicine strives to provide the right medicine for the right patient with the lowest toxicity. Research, like that being done by the Center for Applied Proteomics and Molecular Medicine, provides strategies for personalized treatment with the goal of providing physicians key missing molecular information about the disease in each of their patients and improving the quality of life for patients.
