Harald Mischak is Professor for Proteomics and Systems Medicine at the University of Glasgow, and is the chief scientific officer of Mosaiques AG as well as executive director of Mosaiques diagnostics GmbH and DiaPat GmbH. With more than 180 peer reviewed manuscripts published on signaling and proteomics that have been... read morecited over 11000 times (h-index 55), he is one of the leading experts worldwide in the field of proteome research and applied systems biology. Based on his experience on proteomics in basic research, he initiated the use of urinary proteomics and capillary electrophoresis coupled mass spectrometry for clinical application. Today he is a leading authority in clinical proteomics and biomarker identification. Among his achievement in this field are the development of guidelines for clinical proteome analysis, and the identification of proteomic biomarkers and biomarker-derived classifiers for a variety of diseases (e.g. cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, bladder and prostate cancer).
