The traditional training of a biostatistician ill prepares one to encounter the enormous datasets and science-fiction technologies that arise during the search for biomarkers. In my talk I will describe a few of the interesting projects I have had the good luck to work on over the last few years and how biomarkers have become recurring theme in my work. Along the way, I will discuss some of the ways that Bioinformatics and Biostatistics may cross-pollinate with one another in the search for and validation of new biomarkers.
