The First Autumn Biomarker Working Group is Today!

Posted: 10/26/2018 ()

Today’s Working Group will discuss differences in biomarker results across assay methods. Different measurement methods or sample types can produce very different results for the same analyte, making comparisons across studies difficult. We will talk about some technical details that lead to this problem, and discuss the successes and failures of some large-scale standardization efforts.

The purpose of the Biomarker Working Group is to provide a forum for discussions of practical and theoretical issues associated with collecting and using biomarker data in social and behavioral science research. We hope to provide an opportunity for faculty and students with an interest in biomarker methods to meet researchers with similar interests from departments across campus.

Those who would like to receive regular meeting announcements by email may subscribe to the mailing list.  If you are interested in joining remotely, please RSVP to Ellie Brindle before each session to receive instructions.
