Proteomics is a relatively young discipline while pathology is one of the oldest forms of scientific inquiry. These two fields have different methods and aims, but have many areas of overlap and shared interests. Cultivation of synergistic projects between physicians who study static images of disease and biologists who study the dynamic environment that produces disease states will help further biomedical research providing new diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic approaches. Here, a pathologist and a proteomic scientist share their views on recent collaborations among the fields.
