SLAS Scientific Manager Hannah Rosen, Ph.D., is joined by Sapient Founder and CEO Mo Jain, M.D., Ph.D., for an insightful discussion on small molecule biomarkers. Did you know that methods of identifying biomarkers date all the way back to ancient Greece? You'll be surprised to hear how along with the many ways these biomarkers are shaping drug discovery and other applications. Jain also shares his background with small molecule biomarkers that led to him creating Sapient along with the company's own technology platform used for biomarker discovery.  To learn more about Sapient, visit: https://sapient.bio/About Mo Jain, M.D., Ph.D.:Jain is a physician-scientist with nearly 20 years of expertise in physiology, biomedicine, engineering, computational biology and mass spectrometry-based metabolomics. Prior to founding Sapient, he formed and was director of Jain Laboratory at the University of California San Diego (UCSD), which focused on developing next-generation rapid liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (rLC-MS) systems to probe the non-genetic landscape of disease across population-scale human studies.
