Webinar Description:

In this Webinar Kevin Hrusovskly, the CEO and Chairman of Quanterix will discuss the use of ultrasensitive biomarker assays to enable precision health. Kevin will describe the use of Simoa technology to not only detect disease but be able to monitor normal biology which is enabling a transformation in medicine from "sick care" to "health care". Kevin will be joined in this webinar by Dr. Henrik Zetterberg who will provide specific examples of the use of biomarkers to detect neuro degeneration, and Dr. Jessica Gill who will discuss data showing correlation of biomarker levels to neurotrauma.

Jessica GillDr. Jessica Gill, Ph.D., R.N.

Investigator at National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Co-director of the biomarkers core for the Center for Neurosciences and Regenerative Medicine

Dr. Gill is an investigator at National Institutes of Health (NIH) and co- director of the biomarkers core for the Center for Neurosciences and Regenerative Medicine. Her work examines biological mechanisms of traumatic brain injury (TBI), and related co-morbidities including post- traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), post-concussive disorder (PCD), depression and neurological deficits. Dr. Gill’s studies include alterations in tau and amyloid beta in acute and chronic TBI patients using the SIMOA system. Collaborations include analyses of epigenetic modifications in athletes with repeated TBIs, as gene- expression changes related to neuronal imaging findings, and relations to PCD symptoms. She is a Lasker Clinical Research Scholar Recipient.
