The firm, called Integrated Diagnostics, will validate existing biomarkers and develop assays for them using MRM and proprietary technologies. It expects to launch its first test in about four years.

Integrated Dx will make use Hood's research into protein blood markers, which can provide physiological data on the body's 50 major organs. Using genomic and proteomic techniques, Hood and his research team at ISB will be able to detect protein blood markers in a specific organ site to gain insight into disease states and treatment response.
