At Nautilus we strive to stay at the cutting edge of developments in the proteomics space. We constantly learn from proteomics researchers so we can work to provide the most effective solutions to those who are leveraging the proteome for applications in basic research, human health, and beyond. 

Toward this end, we are excited to attend HUPO 2022 in Cancun Mexico, December 4th – 8th. Nautilus team members will be on hand to answer your questions about the Nautilus platform and share early data showing how the platform is designed to enable deeper access to the proteome. We hope to see you there! 

Discover Nautilus’ technology and meet the experts developing it

Nautilus Booth 102 will be staffed by various members of the Nautilus team who will give you the run-down on the science behind Nautilus. At the booth, you’ll also have the opportunity to meet Nautilus Co-Founder and Chief Scientist, Parag Mallick, and VP of Affinity Reagent Development, Sheri Wilcox at our “Meet the Expert” sessions (3:30PM, December 5-7). Parag and Sheri will walk you through our approach to single-molecule proteomics and answer any questions you have about the technology. Learn more about Parag and Sheri in their bios below. 

Parag Mallick Headshot

Dr. Parag Mallick is a Nautilus Founder, our Chief Scientist, and an Associate Professor at Stanford University. Originally trained as an engineer and biochemist, his research spans computational and experimental systems biology, cancer biology, and nanotechnology. Dr. Mallick received his Ph.D. from UCLA, where he worked with Dr. David Eisenberg. He completed post-doctoral studies at The Institute for Systems Biology, in Seattle, WA with Dr. Ruedi Aebersold. Beyond studying fundamental disease mechanisms, his group has been pioneering big-data approaches for enabling personalized and predictive medicine. In addition to his academic training, Dr. Mallick is also an accomplished magician. He is a member and frequent performer at the prestigious Magic Castle in Hollywood. He has performed all over the world for clients ranging from A-List Celebrities to Fortune 500 companies.

Sherri Wilcox Headshot

Sheri Wilcox, Ph.D., joined Nautilus from SomaLogic, where she was instrumental in the development of the SomaScan Platform and SOMAmer reagents over 21 years at the company and most recently served as Senior Director of Global Scientific Engagement. Dr. Wilcox advanced through positions of increasing responsibility at SomaLogic, including Associate Director of Aptamer Discovery where she guided research of aptamers for biomarker discovery and directed the high-throughput generation of SOMAmer reagents, and Senior Director of Analytical and Discovery Sciences, leading SOMAmer discovery and characterization efforts, as well as several collaborations. Before joining SomaLogic, she applied mass spectrometric methods to understanding antibiotic resistance as a postdoctoral fellow at Pharmacia, prior to its merger with Pfizer Inc. Dr. Wilcox received her B.S. in chemistry from Vanderbilt University, and her Ph.D. in macromolecular and cellular structure and chemistry from Scripps Research.

The Nautilus Single-molecule Proteomics First Access Challenge

At our booth, you can also learn more about our Single-molecule Proteomics First Access Challenge. We’re inviting researchers to become the first to access our Proteome Analysis platform and reimagine what is possible in proteomics when they use Protein Identification by Short-epitope Mapping (PrISM) to easily and sensitively measure billions of intact single-molecule proteins.  

To enter the challenge, you must do the following by February 10th, 2023:

  • Fill out a short questionnaire
  • Submit an abstract (500 words or less) describing the type of experiment you would run if you could measure the proteome using PrISM on 12 samples
  • Submit a description of the impact your research will have in terms of improving scientific knowledge, understanding disease, or impacting the science research community in some other way

Three winners will be announced at US HUPO in Chicago, IL March 4th-8th, 2023. For the winners Nautilus will:

  • Analyze 12 of your samples using Nautilus’ Proteome Analysis Platform
  • Provide you with a final report of data from that analysis, in an easy-to-interpret format
  • Reimburse the winner’s travel expenses to present your interesting Nautilus data at a mutually agreed upon conference
  • Assist you in writing and submitting your Nautilus data in peer reviewed scientific journals

We look forward to seeing you at HUPO 2022!
