“What is important is to create an overview and understanding from different perspectives”

Scientist Jochen Schwenk analyses blood proteins using proteomics to improve our understanding of disease and health. This year, he is moderating the Lab & Diagnostics of the Future event.

Jochen Schwenk is a researcher at Scilifelab in Solna, Sweden, Professor of Translational Proteomics at KTH Royal Institute of Technology and associated with the Human Protein Atlas project. In his research, he and his team develop and use new techniques to gain a better understanding of the proteins circulating in our body and their impact on our health.

The proteome is a dynamic representation of health at a molecular level

“The proteome is a dynamic representation of health at a molecular level, unlike the genome, which is more or less constant throughout life. For example, the proteome is affected by age, food, drugs, stress or other factors that can affect our health,” says Dr Schwenk.

In his opinion, one of the most exciting developments in the field today is the fact that techniques are evolving and becoming more accurate, faster and more sensitive and that the technology is now being used to study larger populations.

On 27 March, the Lab & Diagnostics of the Future event will be held in Stockholm and will focus on topics related to Jochen Schwenk’s field of research. The event aims to promote dialogue between different stakeholders in the field, which Jochen Schwenk finds important.

“There are many different stakeholders in diagnostics. It’s not just me as a researcher developing new methods or discovering new markers, for example, but also those trying to bring the project to a product phase or translating the concept into a clinical area and for those who will use them in the clinics. What is important is to create an overview and understanding from different perspectives.”

Jochen Schwenk will moderate the event at Life City, where Ulf Landegren, Niclas Roxhed and Britta Stenson, among others, will speak.

What are you looking forward to?

“To learn more about the recent trends and possible synergies in interdisciplinary efforts that aim to enable a precision diagnostic guided medicine of the future.”
