08:30

Samir HanashKeynote Presentation

A Mouse to Human Search for Cancer Markers
Samir Hanash, Director, University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, United States of America

Despite substantial improvement in our understanding of the molecular pathology of cancer, very limited progress has been made in the molecular diagnostics of cancer. Genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic studies of cancer including the use of mouse models that recapitulate the human disease have provided leads for molecular diagnostics. The prospects of developing a blood based test to detect common cancers at an early stage has been put to test in validation studies using multiple sources of samples. As a result several marker panels have been developed that show promise for detecting early stage cancers.

09:00

Identification of a Prognostic Protein Profile for Triple Negative Breast Cancer
Arzu Umar, Group Leader, Erasmus Medical Center Rotterdam/Josephine Nefkens Institute, Netherlands

Triple negative breast cancer is very aggressive and no targeted therapies are currently available. We have performed comparative proteome analysis and identified a 15-protein predictor that associates with patient outcome.

09:30

Serum Molecular Portraits – Solving the Puzzle of Cancer
Carl Borrebaeck, Professor and Deputy Vice Chancellor, Lund University, Sweden

One of the driving forces in personalized medicine is the search for protein patterns that can be utilized for improved diagnosis, assessing the risk for tumor relapse and disease progression, as well as for evidence based therapy selection. We have designed and developed antibody microarray, a high-throughput technology for protein expression profiling, to the point where it is now generating data for improved diagnosis, patient stratification, risk assessment, as well as giving insights into disease biology. Several clinical studies have been performed, including analysis of serum/plasma/tissue proteomes from patients suffering from e.g. breast cancer, glioblastoma multiforme, pancreatic carcinoma, gastric adenocarcinoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, and Non-Hodgkin lymphomas. The presentation will be focusing on prognostication and risk classification of metastatic breast cancer.

10:00

Kinase Centric Chemical Proteomics Provides Novel Insights into Individual Cancer Biology
Bernhard Kuster, Head, Technical University of Munich, Germany

This presentation focuses on chemical proteomics based on small molecule kinase inhibitor probes and quantitative mass spectrometry to understand individual tumour biology and to identify novel potential drug targets and molecular signalling pathway biomarkers.

11:15

Proteomic Identification of Putative Biomarkers of Radiotherapy Resistance
Lynn Cawkwell, Senior Lecturer, University of Hull, United Kingdom

Putative biomarkers of radiotherapy resistance have been identified using 3 complementary proteomic platforms. Comparisons between gel-based versus gel-free MS approaches and MS versus non-MS approaches will be highlighted. Progress towards the clinical validation of key proteins will be described.


Secretome Proteomics

11:45

Secretome Proteomics for Tumor Biomarker Discovery
Josep Villanueva, Group Leader, Vall d'Hebron Institute of Oncology, Spain

Cancer secretomes are a promising source of tumor biomarkers. The optimization and implementation of secretome proteomics analysis to different cancer research challenges will be presented.

Poster Viewing Session

14:15

Characterization of the Metastatic Secretome of Colorectal Cancer
Jose Alvarez, Staff Scientist, Center for Biological Investigation, Spain

Colorectal cancer is the second cause of cancer-associated mortality in developed countries. Tumor metastasis depends on different factors, such as growth factors and receptors, proteases, chemokines and extracellular matrix proteins. Many of these factors are secreted by the metastatic cells.


Cancer Biomarker Development

14:45

Ruedi AebersoldKeynote Presentation

Mass Spectrometric Strategies for Protein Biomarker Discovery and Validation
Ruedi Aebersold, Professor, Institute for Systems Biology, United States of America

In this presentation we will discuss this novel biomarker strategy, its present status and expected directions.  A case study on PTEN dependent prostate cancer will illustrate the concept.

Coffee Break & Networking in Exhibition Hall

16:00

Label-Free Mass Spectrometry-Based Proteomics for Cancer Biomarker Discovery and Validation
Connie Jimenez, Head, VU University Medical Center, Netherlands

Label-free mass spectrometry-based proteomics has emerged as a powerful tool for biomarker discovery in biological samples. In my lecture, will present our progress in the discovery and validation of novel screening markers for colorectal cancer and the novel breast cancer signature that selects for homology-repair deficient tumors.

16:30

Clinical Proteomics in Renal Cancer
Peter Selby, Professor of Cancer Medicine, Leeds Institute of Molecular Medicine, United Kingdom

The urgent clinical need for biomarkers for the diagnosis, prognosis, follow up and prediction of response to therapy in renal cancer can be addressed using label-free quantification mass spectrometry and other approaches.  Recent progress will be summarised.

William GallaghrKeynote Presentation

Fast-Tracking Molecular Diagnostics in Oncology via Antibody-Based Proteomics and Digital Pathology
William Gallaghr, Chief Scientific Officer/Professor, OncoMark Limited/University College Dublin, Ireland

This presentation will cover the utility of antibody-based profiling using tissue microarrays and associated digital pathology approaches to expedite the transition from biomarker discovery to validation in oncology. Case studies covering a range of cancer and biomarker types will be outlined.

09:30

Results From Serum-Tumorautoantibody Profiling of Breast, Colon, Lung and Prostate Cancers Using a 16k Protein Array for Improving Minimal Invasive Diagnostics
Andreas Weinhaeusel, Senior Scientist, Austrian Institute of Technology GmbH, Austria

Using an in house established 16k protein-microarray autoantibody profiling enabled >90% correct classification of patients versus controls using serum- and plasma. Several classifier antigens panels have been defined which are biomarker candidates for minimal invasive early cancer diagnostics.

10:00

The Human Protein Atlas
Fredrik Ponten, Professor, Uppsala University, Sweden

Analysis of tissue-specific expression at both the transcript and protein level is vital for understanding human biology and disease. The Human Protein Atlas project employs an antibody-based proteomics approach to systematically map the distribution and relative abundance of human proteins in a multitude of human normal tissues, cancer and cells.

Emmanuel Barillot, Bioinformatics and IT Director, Institut Curie, France

The subject of the presentation will deal with several approaches we have implemented for investigating how a biological network can control cellular processes in cancer, and give rise to tumorigenesis, tumor progression, or therapeutic response or resistance. In particular we are interested in predicting the fate of cells or tumors upon different perturbations (either genetic, chemical or other): death, proliferation, invasion, metastasis...
