Chemical tools for understanding disease
The importance of early diagnosis is getting clearer the more we learn to understand the development of various diseases. In the vast majority of cases, it is crucial for the rate of development of the disease that we can provide adequate treatment as early as possible.
Today, we can develop new tools in the field of chemical research that will make it easier for the clinician to assess and supplement existing clinical chemistry analyzes. The analyzes developed may focus on the identification and quantification of individual substances (eg specific proteins, peptides, amines, steroids, fatty acids or carbohydrates) or provide more comprehensive biochemical patterns that can serve as diagnostic fingerprints.
To the right you'll find different research groups that has their own specialisation within Analytical Chemistry.
