Congratulations to Dr. Bram Ramjiawan and Dr. Pram Tappia, for their work which was featured on the August 2019 cover of Cancers.

The work explores the concept of liquid biopsy and metabolomics as an important contributor for understanding human disease. The use of metabolomics for lung cancer may provide the specificity required for diagnosing lung cancer from other cancer types and could be used as a diagnostic and treatment monitoring tool. A follow up paper (published in the same journal) successfully identified and validated a simple, high-performing, metabolite-based test for specifically detecting early stage (I/II) lung cancer.
