    "Many cancers can be cured when detected early; however sensitive tools capable of detecting early-stage or residual diseases after surgery or treatment are often lacking. We intend to use a novel antibody profiling tool to detect cancer, identify minimal residual disease and predict early relapse, thus preventing late-stage disease."
