Bench to bedside research - lost in translation?
Ian Weeks is presently Professor in Translational Biochemistry at Cardiff University School of Medicine where he is Deputy Director in the Institute of Translation, Innovation, Methodology and Engagement. His interests are in the development of non-invasive tests, based on biochemical methods, for the prediction, diagnosis and prognosis of disease. Advances in
molecular signalling technologies now permit the development of highly sensitive and specific tests which can be used in multiplex formats within laboratory environments or as the basis for point-of-care platforms to better inform diagnostic decisions and subsequent interventions. He has over 30 years experience in the research and development of in vitro diagnostic test
systems in both academia and industry and in the commercialisation of novel diagnostic technologies.
