Olink Breakfast Symposium: From Discovery to Quantified Cytokines: Actionable Insights on the Low Abundant Plasma Proteome

Speaker: Dale Yuzuki, M.A., M.Ed., Director, Digital Strategic Marketing Communications, Olink Proteomics (United States) 

Friday 9/23/2022 | 07:15 AM – 08:15 AM HST| Kohala Ballroom and Virtual Platform


The study of inflammation as a vital process in the body’s immunological response to infection in injury contributes significantly to understanding pathophysiology of many human diseases. The COVID-19 pandemic emphasized the disastrous potential of inflammatory molecules, where “cytokine release storms” resulting from excessive immune responses to the virus were responsible for severe or fatal disease in some patients.

This presentation will cover the underlying Olink technology to interrogate 45 protein biomarkers from only a single microliter of biological sample (either in standard concentration units or in relative normalized units).

The applications of this highly multiplexed immunoassay will cover the study of inflammation, whether well-studied autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease, or common disease such as cardiovascular disease, neurological disorders and cancer.
