Dr. Roy Smythe Explains the Importance of Protein Expression in Practicing Precision Medicine
Physician scientist Dr. Roy Symthe discusses how, unlike genes, proteins are always changing and therefore can tell us something new about a patient’s current health state and potentially their future health state. Dr. Smythe is CEO of SomaLogic, a company that scans human proteins to gain insights into the past, current, and future health of patients, making it a promising new technology for precision medicine outcomes.
