The Faces of Luminex: Stephanie Harris, Technical Applications Specialist

10月 11th, 2016 / Hilary Graham

The Bead Master

Q: What do you do at Luminex?

I’m a Technical Applications Specialist providing customers with troubleshooting support. I’m the protein specialist in our group, so I use this expertise to work on internal development projects as well as provide solutions to researchers’ queries. I generally receive four significant cases per day plus a couple of straightforward queries. The longest call I’ve ever had was a little over 2 hours, and the customer was great – she was willing to try everything I suggested to resolve her issue.

When I started at Luminex two years ago, this was the first customer facing role I’ve had. I began by answering emails and submissions from the web form, which we respond to in less than an hour, but now I am fully confident when fielding complex customer calls in real time. When talking with customers, I generally stand in front of the instrument, as this helps to bring all my knowledge front-of-mind.

Shooting for the Moon – Proteogenomics – The Next Leap in Precision Cancer Care

10月 11th, 2016 / Hilary Graham

APOLLO links proteomic and genomic analysis to develop more effective oncology treatment plans

The Cancer Moonshot is a mission that all of us #CanServe according to Vice President Joe Biden. Announced at the State of the Union address in January 2016, the program aims to double the rate of progress toward a cure for cancer through increased collaboration and investment. Most recently the Applied Proteogenomics Organizational Learning and Outcomes (APOLLO) Network was established, and will combine point-of-care genomic and proteomic analysis in hopes of matching a patient’s tumor types to targeted therapies. A cohort of 8,000 patients undergoing treatment for lung cancer, as part of the Veterans Affairs (VA) and the Department of Defense (DoD) healthcare systems, will be routinely screened at oncologist appointments with the goal of identifying treatment plans that are more effective based on patient’s unique proteogenomic profile.
