Vancouver, British Columbia – (October 2nd, 2018) – BioMark Diagnostics Inc. (“BioMark”) (CSE: BUX) (FSE: 20B) (OTCMKTS: BMKDF) is pleased to announce that it has appointed Dr. Sandeep Singhal to its scientific advisory team.
Rashid Ahmed, President and CEO, says, “We are delighted to welcome Dr. Singhal into our scientific advisory team. He provides expertise in clinical trial design, deep analytical data support and integration. His experience is vitally important in validating, improving robustness of our assay(s) and integrating a multi perspective of Omics as a clinical diagnostic tool. His capabilities to develop and implement custom bioinformatics programming solutions in collaboration with labs will be an important asset for BioMark. Dr. Singhal’s contributions will enhance our analytical bench strength as we commence commercialization of our assays which is powered by genomics, metabolomics and big data”.
Leveraging big data from genomics, proteomics and metabolomics (Omics) and incorporating smarter analytics to BioMark’s technology platform will improve the overall performance of the tests significantly. Offering a unified view of these disciplines will lead to better diagnostics tools available to better manage cancer treatment at large says”, Dr. Singhal.
