Why Patients Adore Mass Spectrometry
Andy Hoofnagle, University of Washington
MSACL 2015 EU :: Plenary > General

Questions about this video?

Physicians rely on high quality measurements of small molecules and proteins for the diagnosis, prognosis, and management of disease. Health care providers have become reliant on relatively inexpensive, high-throughput immunoassays to capture biomarker data from patient samples. Unfortunately, these assays can be misleading. Clinical mass spectrometric assays bring sensitivity and specificity together in previously unthinkable ways and span the range of medical specialties. This talk will describe the ways in which mass spectrometry can improve the care of our patients.

The Rise of Intelligent Machines and What It Means to the Lab and Healthcare
Randall Julian, Indigo BioAutomation
MSACL 2015 US :: Plenary > Automation

Questions about this video?

Intelligent machines teamed with experts are superior to experts working alone. This will have profound effects on the nature of healthcare delivery. Further, the advance of automation is already having a significant effect on labor markets, and there is no reason to believe healthcare will not be impacted. In this lecture examples of human-machine teams will be given. Also, the impact on society of the increased role of smart machines will be discussed. Comparisons between the first and second machine ages will be used to draw out the consequences, benefits and difficulties we will face as a scientific community.
