Topic

When biomarkers are mentioned, we think primarily of molecules, but the physical, physiological changes are also included. Their applicability is wide ranged. The risk of disease, its early warning, diagnostics, and tracking the success of therapy are also possible by biomarkers. Nutritional status, alcohol and drug use are also detectable with them. The measurement methods are ranged from simple to complex laboratory procedures. Volatile molecules belong to a special group of biomarkers. These can be detected by olfactory (human, animal or artificial nose) or biochemical techniques. The goal of this course is to familiarize students with biomarkers from simple everyday use to special, less known opportunities.
