Chair: Henry Rodriguez, USA
Co-chair: Yu-Ju Chen, Taiwan
Speaker: Matthew Ellis, USA – New Prospects for Killing ER+ Breast Cancer (Micro-scale Proteogenomics)
Speaker: Amanda Paulovich, USA – Building New Clinical Solutions for Precision Oncology via Proteogenomics
Speaker: Albert Sickmann, Germany – Proteogenomics/Proteomics: Complementing Precision Medicine with Phenotypic Data
Ever since the announcement of the Precision Medicine Initiative, there have been increasing efforts to identify and understand the basis of cancer using high-throughput technologies and the development of specialized treatments for specific subtypes of cancer, based on molecular evidence. Clinical proteogenomics is an exciting opportunity to complement the gene testing-centric clinical community for precision medicine. However, translating proteomic measurements to real-world patient care requires synergy of multiple requirements: meaningful and actionable molecular characterization, clinical and analytical validation, defining diagnosis values, and meeting regulatory compliance.
This HUPO session showcases clinical researchers discussing their stories and strategies to move proteomics towards better patient/clinical care. During this interactive broadcast, learn about the insight of three stories:
- Microscaled proteogenomics technology for predicting response of triple negative breast cancer
- Development of robust targeted platforms for clinical laboratory tests, drug development, and clinical trials
New Prospects for Killing ER+ Breast Cancer (Micro-scale Proteogenomics)
- Speaker: Matthew Ellis, MB., BChir., Ph.D., FRCP https://www.bcm.edu/people-search/matthew-ellis-21089
- Overall: Dr. Ellis will discuss how microscaled proteogenomics is applied to biopsies from triple negative breast cancer patients undergoing neoadjuvant carboplatin/docetaxel, revealing a wealth of biological features associated with chemotherapy resistance beyond immune response markers.

Building New Clinical Solutions for Precision Oncology via Proteogenomics
- Speaker: Amanda Paulovich, MD, PhD https://www.fredhutch.org/en/faculty-lab-directory/paulovich-amanda.html
- Overview: Dr Paulovich will discuss the added value of proteogenomics to the current genome-driven approach to precision oncology, and summarize the growing incorporation of targeted proteomic measurements based on selected/multiple reaction monitoring (SRM/MRM) mass spectrometry into clinical trials and the clinical laboratory

Proteogenomics/Proteomics: Complementing Precision Medicine with Phenotypic Data
- Speaker: Albert Sickmann, PhD https://www.isas.de/en/institut/abteilungen/personen/albert-sickmann/
- Overview: Dr. Sickmann will present examples for proteogenomic phenotyping of KRASwildtype and KRASG12V in CRC liver metastases. Several peptides identified in this study represent a number of predicted somatic mutations, including KRASG12V. A tailor made multiplexed parallel reaction monitoring (PRM) assay was used for precise quantification of mutation rates on the protein level. Such PRM-based tumor-phenotyping might improve patient stratification in the future. He will discuss the impact of regulatory compliance (from a central European perspective) for the translation of proteomics based biomarkers towards clinical use.
