Multiplexed Biomolecular Science Group


The Multiplexed Biomolecular Science Group conducts research in all aspects of measurement science, technology development, and standards for measurements where biological state is related to the contemporaneous levels of many biomolecules; establishes methods for asserting traceability, assessing measurement uncertainty, and validating measurements for multiplexed measurands; establishes approaches for measurement assurance of multiplexed and multivariate measurands, including standards and methods development; participates and leads relevant standards organizations and international bodies to develop and promulgate standards for and approaches to multiplexed and multivariate measurement assurance; develops multiplexed metrology for all facets of biochemical science, including clinical, pharmaceutical, biological and biomedical research, forensic, and homeland security applications.
