Master thesis projects
Proteomics tools as antibodies and technological platforms are being increasingly used for analysis of body fluids aiming to identify biomarkers for diagnosis, prognosis, or surveillance of most common disorders. This is crucial for Duchenne and Becker Muscular Dystrophy, two rare disorders that affect only boys with short life expectancy.
Two master thesis projects are available in the field of antibody-based proteomics (1) validation of biomarkers in large longitudinal cohorts and (2) development of immunoassays for selected biomarkers. The projects are done in collaboration with Leiden University Medical Center, Newcastle University and University College of London.
