Many local and global resources and strategies are required for the discovery and development of biomarkers including patient cohorts, molecular technologies, computational and modeling acumen, biological and clinical depth, health economics and commercialization expertise, health system and regulatory navigation and private sector engagement. The PROOF Centre actively embraces these vital resources to assure an environment and innovation system that advances biomarkers for improved health care and economic development. Here are just some of the partners from our past and present projects.
