    Biography
      Dr. William Clarke is an associate professor of pathology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. His research focuses on the development of analytical methods for drug analysis, clinical mass spectrometry, and devices for point-of-care testing. Dr. Clarke serves as the director of Clinical Toxicology as well as Critical and Point-of-Care Testing Program at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.

      His team's current projects include qualitative screening for antiretroviral drugs and substances of abuse in various HIV- prevention clinical trials, development and validation of mass spectrometry methods for clinical analysis, and development of clinical assays for use on microfluidic platforms.

      Dr. Clarke received his B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Nebraska at Kearney and his Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, as well as an M.B.A. from the Carey School of Business at Johns Hopkins University. He completed a post-doctoral fellowship in Clinical Chemistry at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.

    Abstract

    DATE: April 27, 2017
    TIME: 10:00am PT, 1:00pm ET

    Mass spectrometry is increasingly being used for clinical testing and evaluation of patients in various settings.  The utilization of this technology is driven by its potential to perform challenging analyses in complex matrices and sample types.   While mass spectrometry is a powerful tool, there are also some challenges that must be addressed for it to be routinely used for medical testing.  This presentation will discuss the increasing use of mass spectrometry for clinical testing, discuss challenges for implementation of the technology, and present some cases where it may have significant impact in medical care.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Describe how mass spectrometry is currently used in clinical laboratories
    • Discuss the challenges regarding implementation of mass spectrometry into routine testing
    • Define areas where mass spectrometry can be used to positively impact medical care
