VACAVILLE, Calif.--(BW HealthWire)--Feb. 28, 2001--Large Scale Biology Corporation (Nasdaq: LSBC) is pleased to invite financial analysts, investors and journalists to attend the first ever scientific briefing on the recently completed inventory of proteins in the human body, known as the Human Protein Index(TM) (HPI(TM)). The HPI provides the first important baseline for determining the essential link between genes and the vast array of proteins in human health and disease. The briefing will be held on Wednesday, March 7, from 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM at the New York Academy of Sciences in New York City.
Dr. Leigh Anderson, chief scientific officer of LSBC's proteomics subsidiary, commented, "This first version of the Human Protein Index heralds a new era in the study of human anatomy begun in the 1400's. For the first time, scientists now have a meaningful way to relate the function of the broadest array of proteins to their roles in disease and treatment. In fact, many of the discovered proteins have not yet been described in scientific literature, and may indeed provide a fascinating, and much more holistic, viewpoint on human health and illness."
The conference will feature a distinguished panel of scientists who will discuss the historic, decades-long search for the human proteome, how the Human Protein Index(TM) was developed, its initial findings, and its potential impact on medicine.
