designing, building and implementing
We apply our expertise in protein biochemistry, analytical chemistry, and laboratory medicine to build new biofluid tests for immediate use in patient care.
Our work is 100% driven by clinical demand, that is, we work collaboratively with health care providers and patients to build biofluid diagnostics to fill unmet needs in medicine.
We work in beautiful Vancouver, Canada, at St. Paul's Hospital - a teaching hospital of the University of British Columbia.
Mari DeMarco is a Clinical Chemist with expertise in protein misfolding disorders and in vitro diagnostics.
We have an interest in all things proteinacious, particularly if the protein or peptide in question can help us answer an unresolved challenge in medicine.
We apply our expertise in the development of novel protein-based diagnostics in many areas of medicine including respirology, endocrinology, gastroenterology and neurology.
We are passionate about developing biofluid tests for the timely and accurate diagnosis of neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease, frontotemporal dementia, and Lewy body dementia.
We investigate the entire biomarker pathway, including the translation of these new tests into the health care system.
