“Proteomics has many applications, from identifying and monitoring biomarkers by analysing proteins in body fluids to facilitating drug development by providing a comprehensive map of protein interactions associated with disease pathways,” he explains.

Like many of his peers, Dr Dite found a natural affinity for science in high school and pursued specialised science subjects in his senior years.
After completing his postgraduate degree, he went on to undertake a PhD in the Metabolic Signalling Laboratory at St Vincent’s Institute of Medical Research.
The lure of an international experience led him to Scotland for a postdoctoral appointment working on a novel mass spectrometry-based assay using a combination of CRISPR and TurboID technologies.
