A new research paper sheds light on the way antibodies distinguish between different but closely related ‘biomarkers’ – proteins which reveal information about the condition of the human body. This new understanding could enable pharmaceutical companies to develop new technologies for quickly diagnosing and treating fatal diseases.
All diseases have proteins, or concentrations of proteins, specifically linked to them called biomarkers. Identifying these can prove a powerful diagnostic tool. These biomarkers are detected by immunoassays – a test which mixes a substance (eg blood, urine) with antibodies, which bind to the protein if it is present. The antibodies can then be measured to identify the level of the biomarker, which in turn indicates the presence and extent of an illness.

What kind of career do you imagine for yourself? Doctor? Lawyer?
Scientist? Engineer? Teacher? CEO? Manager? Salesperson?
A university degree in biomedical engineering will prepare you for
all of these professions and more. Biomedical engineers use their expert-
ise in biology, medicine, physics, mathematics, engineering science and
communication to make the world a healthier place. The challenges cre-
ated by the diversity and complexity of living systems require creative,
knowledgeable, and imaginative people working in teams of physicians,
scientists, engineers, and even business folk to monitor, restore and
enhance normal body function. The biomedical engineer is ideally
trained to work at the intersection of science, medicine and mathematics
to solve biological and medical problems.
