Fundamental mechanistic research into disease processes has led to an increasing appreciation for the ways in which disease progression and treatment outcomes are influenced by patient heterogeneity. Small changes to low abundant proteins in complex matrices can serve as important indices to reveal important clues about a disease on an individual level, but harnessing this promise rests on our ability to accurately and quantitatively measure proteins with high precision.
