The MPC has been a competence area since 2019 Medical proteome analysis Part of the research project "ProDi - molecular protein diagnostics". The goal of ProDi (protein diagnostics) is to expand the diagnostics of oncological and neuro-degenerative diseases with a new approach to analyzing protein alterations. The protein changes indicate the actual onset of disease, if possible even before clinical symptoms occur. They can be used to supplement the previously widely used genetically based biomarkers that display errors in the DNA blueprint. The combination of biophotonics, proteomics and bioinformatics in the ProDi research building provides the complete range of platform technologies required to determine the changes in the proteome in patient bioproducts from tissue to cells to the individual protein.
