Predictions? Single-cell multi-omics analysis, applications in personalized and precision medicine, diagnosis, biomarker discovery, AI-assisted multiomic analyses and biomarker discovery, as well as structural proteomics.
Advice? Analytical science has evolved as the “central science” that enables and impacts multiple areas of discoveries and advancements. Its interdisciplinary nature allows an analytical scientist to work at the interface of chemistry and biology to push the boundaries of each field while solving significant biomedical problems. So have an open mind and seek opportunities to collaborate with researchers from diverse fields and backgrounds.
