Within this review we discuss two methodologies used in tissue proteomics, namely mass-spectrometry (MS)-based protein pattern diagnostics and protein microarrays. Further, we describe current goals within the field of tissue proteomics and suggest points of departure for designing nanotechnology-based tools that will enhance the role of molecularly based diagnostics and therapeutics development in clinical medicine.
