The Long and Short of Proteomics, How Proteins Shape Who We Are

Renowned Northwestern University molecular bio-scientist Neil Kelleher, who stands 5’0” tall in his socks, and his good friend Luka Mircovic, 6’11”, a former power forward for the 2012 Northwestern Wildcats, discuss the role of proteins in human health, disease, and how they can shape the diagnostics of the future. Professor Kelleher also reveals his massive worldwide effort to map one billion proteins throughout the human body ushering in a new era in human health. Once completed, the project is expected to give rise to new antibiotics and revolutionary technologies for detecting and treating cancer and other diseases.
