Welcome to Training in Clinical Proteomics (TICP) for Clinical research professionals, residents and advanced medical students.


Workshop Objective:

The Training in Clinical Proteomics (TICP) program is Institute of Bioinformatics (IOB) flagship training course. IOB is a premier center for Proteomics and Computational Biology. IOB has established a state-of-the-art proteomics facility that is being utilized to explore and validate candidate biomarkers in a wide array of human diseases ranging from neurological disorders and infections to cancers.

Scientists at IOB will share their expertise in using high-resolution proteomic technologies with clinical professionals, residents and advanced medical students through a series of workshops. We have successfully conducted eight workshops on high resolution mass spectrometry-based proteomics. Several faculties and students from reputed Research Institutes and Universities from India have participated in these workshops.

This 4-day long highly practical course explores the relevance of clinical proteomics in clinical research and summarizes the high resolution mass spectrometry-based proteomics. It covers clinical proteomics technologies and summarizes their application to clinical and biological research. As a part of this intensive training each participant will get hands-on training for sample prep and mass spectrometry-derived proteomic data analysis. For individuals who will participate in TICP program in a supportive capacity, the Workshop alone is sufficient training. For others desiring to be independent investigators, the workshop serves as introductory material for the more advanced training.
