Biology in general and clinical biomedicine in particular is currently experiencing a revolution caused by the rapid and extraordinary technological leaps in molecular and cellular biology. Powerful high-throughput technologies for DNA/RNA sequencing, mass spectrometry-based proteomics, genome-editing techniques and protein imaging now enable unprecedented understanding of the molecular basis of human disease.

Translating this knowledge into new clinical procedures and treatments demands a deeper understanding of disease-related proteins and their function.

Proteins are the main effectors of cellular function. Their myriad functions include safeguarding the stability of our genome, being the structural and enzymatic components of the cell, and serving as cell-surface receptors and growth factors that mediate cell and tissue communication.

Detailed mechanistic studies of how genetic alterations affect protein function, how proteins interact within signaling pathways to affect cell behavior, and how post-translational modifications such as phosphorylation and ubiquitylation serve to regulate disease signaling pathways will contribute to the progress of translational research within medicine and provide important insights may be used in developing new treatment modalities.
