Thermo Fisher Scientific establishes Tokyo Biomarker Research Center
September 2010
SHARING OPTIONS:

SAN JOSE, Calif.Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. recently announced that its Biomarker Research Initiatives in Mass Spectrometry (BRIMS) Center will establish the Tokyo Biomarker Research Center, a research center in Japan that will focus on biomarker discovery and quantification, disease mechanisms, therapeutic drug monitoring and disease pathophysiology. Working with Toshihide Nishimura and Gyorgy Marko-Varga, professors at Tokyo Medical University Hospital, Thermo Fisher will bring to the collaboration its expertise in mass spectrometry-based assays, workflow development and technology integration, as well as its network of collaborators engaged in similar research. Correlation of protein expression and quantitative regulation for diseases of key concern in Japan, such as lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and cardiovascular disease, will be performed to discover biomarker candidates related to drug response. The research center will also house an archive with comprehensive tissue and blood sample collections, along with access to complementary clinical and demographic data. The archive will include samples from drug responders and non-responders, and material from clinical studies performed in Scandinavia and other European countries.
