HUPO 2021 World Congress

Thank you for Joining Us at HUPO2021ReCONNECT. See you in Cancun For #HUPO2022

Pre Congress Webinar Series

HUPO ReConnect 2021 kicked off with a series of live webinars which took place on August 16 and October 18. The very best of proteomics research were presented as a prelude to the main Congress sessions. The webinars comprised presentations with dedicated time for your questions and interactions with the speakers and moderator/chair. This exciting pre-congress program is complimentary and you can still register to watch the on-demand recordings until November 19.

Date: October 18, 2021
Title: Real-World Precision Medicine: Proteogenomics to Accelerate Drug Development and Patient Care (90 Minutes)

Time: 08:00 PDT (UTC-7), 11:00 EDT (UTC-4), 15:00 UTC, 17:00 CEST (UTC+2), 01:00 AET (UTC+10)(October 19)

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)

Building New Clinical Solutions for Precision Oncology via Proteogenomics

Proteogenomics/Proteomics: Complementing Precision Medicine with Phenotypic Data

  • Speaker: Albert Sickmann, PhD
  • 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.
