Stoller Biomarker Discovery Centre (SBDC)
The Stoller Biomarker Discovery Centre (SBDC) has a number of collaborations with industry
We are currently engaged in setting up collaboration with Sciex aimed at establishing the Stoller Centre as a centre of excellence in clinical proteomics research. The Centre is currently equipped with a large suite of high-end SCIEX mass spectrometers, and The University of Manchester has also invested in a number of liquid chromatography and automated sample preparation from SCIEX and other Danaher life science companies.
The University of Manchester has signed a collaboration agreement with Abcodia to perform proteomics studies on a cohort of non-small cell lung cancer cases from the UKCTOCS biobank with the aim of discovering new blood-based biomarkers for earlier detection of the disease.
