Amgen R&D's next podcast series Human Data Era is now available wherever you listen to podcasts. Produced in partnership with The Scientist, Human Data Era explores the ways researchers and clinicians can now go beyond genetics, combining proteomics, metabolomics, transcriptomics and environmental factors into a broad category of human data.
By studying human genetics, scientists discovered mechanisms that, when defective, cause disease. While this type of data is powerful, additional information can provide more insight on the human condition. In this series, host Ray Deshaies, Ph.D., Amgen's senior vice president of Global Research, talks with experts about the wealth and diversity of human data now available and how scientists are transitioning to incorporate it into their research.
"Having a holistic view of a patient's unique biology potentially leads to earlier and better treatment options," said Deshaies. "Ultimately, this data may help drug developers and clinicians unpack the complexities of disease to improve patient outcomes."
The first episode launched October 20, and the series continues with a new episode every Thursday through November 10. You can find Human Data Era here or by subscribing to The Scientist's series LabTalk on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, Google Podcasts or wherever you like to listen.
