Palo Alto, CA - Vinit Mahajan M.D., Ph.D., Stanford vitreoretinal surgeon and Vice Chair of Research in the department of ophthalmology, was recently featured in the article, “Precision Medicine Will Rely on Proteins, Not Just DNA,” written by MaryAnn Liebert for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology News.

Mahajan discussed how he uses proteomics, the large-scale study of proteins, to get a real-time analysis of human eye disease, to improve diagnostics by distinguishing between eye diseases with similar symptoms, and to pin-point drugs that target specific proteins. Proteomics is a cutting-edge molecular surgery tool impacting precision health and personalized patient care.
