Proteogenomics Research: On the Frontier of Precision Medicine
 
03:31
Genomics is the study of the complete set DNA in an organism (called the genome). Analyzing the genome of a patient’s cancer can reveal information about how to best detect, diagnose, and treat the cancer. Proteomics is the comprehensive study of the complete set of proteins in an organism (called the proteome). Analyzing the proteome of a patient’s cancer can also provide information on how to best diagnose and treat the patient. In the past researchers often studied patients’ cancer genomes and proteomes separately. In 2016, three research teams combined the comprehensive analysis of patients’ cancer genomes and proteomes, creating a new area of research called proteogenomics. These studies showed that proteogenomics analysis produces a more complete and unified picture of cancer biology than analyzing genomics and proteomics separately.  Researchers are hopeful that proteogenomics may improve our ability to prevent, diagnose, and treat cancer using precision medicine.

$100,000 Grant for Genomics Undergraduate Research -- College of Charleston
 
02:53
College of Charleston and MUSC researchers will use a $100,000 grant to train a new generation of genomics-enabled scientists to advance the future of biology. The 12-month grant funds research positions for four undergraduate students, starting in summer 2013. The project is a collaboration between the College of Charleston Departments of Biology and Computer Science, and the MUSC Center for Cancer Genomics. "We are now entering a new era of life sciences where the comprehensive genetic information of any individual organism can be readily obtained, so it is vital the next generation of students can think critically about issues that may arise," explains Andrew Shedlock, biology professor, and grant co-investigator. "Genomics will impact our ability to develop effective public policy and responsible business based on biology. We'll train students to utilize the literature and online resources generated by genome science, to analyze genome-scale information computationally and to creatively apply genome technology to a broad cross section of innovative research in the life sciences." Shedlock will lead the molecular biology, vertebrate genome science, and data production aspects of the project. Co-investigator Paul Anderson, computer science professor and director of the College's Data Science Program, will lead the computational methods development, software training and computing infrastructure components of this project. Co-investigator Dr. Dennis Watson, associate director for education and training for the MUSC Hollings Cancer Center, will provide access to next-generation high-throughput parallel DNA sequencing technology via the newly established Illumina diagnostics platform based in the Genomics Core at Hollings Cancer Center. The students will work cooperatively between Shedlock's biology lab, Anderson's computer science lab and the MUSC Genomics Core facility to became fully functional in the experimental design, data production, data analysis, and results synthesis for high-throughput, next-generation comparative genomics research. The grant is sponsored by an NIH-funded partnership with South Carolina called EPSCoR IDeA, which stands for the Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) and Institutional Development Awards (IDeA). Specifically, this grant falls under GEAR: CI, which stands for Grants for Exploratory Academic Research: Cyberinfrastructure. Shedlock explains the importance of genomics, "In particular we need to better understand not just what genes are shared among individuals, but how those genes are regulated, differentially expressed, and to what extent this gene activity explains organismal complexity, biodiversity, inheritance, resistance to disease, and the dynamic relationships between individuals and the environment." #Boundlesscofc

Mission Cancer Institute - Signs
 
02:13
A Reflection on the Cancer Journey Mission Hospital announced that it will break ground in January 2018 to build a new, comprehensive cancer center. The center is scheduled to open in the summer of 2019. It will be housed in a dedicated 104,000-square-foot facility located directly across the street from Mission Hospital on Medical Center Road. Mission Hospital Foundation will partner with our community to raise $40 million in philanthropy to support critical technology, patient-centered programs and clinical service expansion. “Mission Hospital has provided a broad range of sophisticated clinical and preventative health care services, defined by clinical excellence and compassionate care to the greater south Orange County for more than 45 years,” said Tarek Salaway, chief executive of Mission Hospital. “We are embarking on a $40 million campaign to provide a comprehensive cancer institute that brings together our talented physicians and clinicians with a focus on innovative technology, advanced diagnostic and therapeutic patient care, dedicated research, genomics, education and prevention programs to meet vitally important medical needs and whole-person care of our community.” “This type of incredible innovation and development requires extraordinary philanthropic support from our community,” said Margarita Solazzo, chair of the Mission Hospital Foundation Board of Directors. “We must have the philanthropic support to bring this remarkable level of patient-centered care to south Orange County. The four-story facility will include extensive medical office space for physicians dedicated to care for patients with cancer and other specialty needs, and it will also have its own parking structure. The Mission Hospital cancer center will be located across the street from the hospital, next to the Shops at Mission Viejo. The new center, an essential component of the cancer institute, is part of a real estate transaction that was signed last week with development partners, NCA and Welltower. “I am excited about the creation of the Mission Hospital cancer institute, a center for excellence in cancer care, treatment and prevention. The Mission Hospital cancer institute will significantly enhance the level of care for patients seeking high quality care in South Orange County as well promote clinical research and cancer screening for and in our community,” said Stuart Nagasawa, MD, Medical Oncologist at Mission Hospital. The Mission Hospital cancer center will complement and expand Mission’s excellent oncology nursing and inpatient clinical services with a collaborative multi-disciplinary approach to treatment, based on the clinical research and evidence based practice, personalized to each patient’s specific tumor and type of cancer. Services provided at the new institute include radiation oncology, imaging, medical oncology (infusion), nurse navigation, genomic counseling, clinical trials, psycho-social services, clinical pharmacy and laboratory facilities and more.

Sue Biggins (Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, HHMI) 2: Investigating Kinetochore Function
 
23:28
https://www.ibiology.org/cell-biology/kinetochore/#part-2 Proper chromosome segregation during cell division is critical to ensure that daughter cells inherit the correct number of chromosomes. Microtubules emanating from the spindle poles pull on sister chromatids to move one chromosome to each pole. The kinetochore, a protein complex on the chromosome, is key to regulating chromosome segregation. Kinetochores form attachments to microtubule ends (no easy feat since microtubules are constantly growing and shrinking), they sense tension to ensure that sister chromatids are connected to microtubules from opposite poles, and they signal the cell to stop cell division if attachment is not correct. Biggins gives an excellent overview of kinetochore structure and its critical functions in chromosome segregation. When Biggins began working on kinetochores, the experiments that she could do were limited by the lack of a method to purify intact kinetochores. In Part 2 of her talk, Biggins explains how her lab purified kinetochores from yeast (for the first time ever!). They showed that the purified protein complex functioned in the same manner in vitro as endogenous kinetochores. Using electron microscopy and other techniques, Biggins and her collaborators were able to visualize the structure of the kinetochore-microtubule attachment and demonstrate, surprisingly, that tension directly stabilizes the attachment. Speaker Biography: Dr. Sue Biggins studied biology as an undergraduate at Stanford University and initially thought she would apply to medical school after receiving her degree. However, after a summer working in a research lab, she changed her mind and decided to apply to graduate school. Biggins received her PhD in molecular biology from Princeton and was a post-doctoral fellow with Andrew Murray at the University of California, San Francisco. Currently, Biggins is a Principal Investigator in the Division of Basic Sciences at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and an Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Her lab studies the kinetochore and how it regulates chromosome segregation. Chromosome mis-segregation results in aneuploidy, a common hallmark of cancer as well hereditary birth defects. Biggins’ groundbreaking research has been recognized with numerous honors. In 2013, Biggins received the National Academy of Sciences Award in Molecular Biology and the Hutchinson Center McDougall Mentoring Award. In 2015, she was awarded the Novitski Prize from the Genetics Society of America, and was elected to the National Academy of Sciences.

Veterans Day Celebration at Moffitt Cancer Center - 2018
 
26:05
Floyd Cook spent 20 years traveling the world working reconnaissance missions in the United States Air Force. But the biggest battle of his life was fought at Moffitt Cancer Center. Five years ago, Cook started feeling extremely exhausted. When the fatigue forced him to stop playing basketball, he went to the doctor and was eventually diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma. He spent years undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatments, but it was CAR T therapy, or chimeric antigen receptor therapy, that sent him into remission in the summer of 2018. Yet, something still didn’t feel quite right and shortly thereafter, doctors diagnosed him with lung cancer. Just weeks after undergoing surgery, Cook is Moffitt’s guest of honor at the cancer center’s third annual Veterans Day celebration. “It’s an honor to be given this opportunity to celebrate my military career and my journey with cancer,” Cook says. Jessica Schwarzkopf, breast cancer survivor and daughter of the late Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf, will present Cook with a plaque recognizing him for his service to our country. Like his daughter, Gen. Schwarzkopf beat cancer and was an advocate for early screening. Cook says receiving the honor from Schwarzkopf means a lot because he served under the general at U.S. Central Command and admired him. As for Cook, he is now in remission for the lung cancer. He will return to Moffitt every six months for the next two years for follow up visits and routine screenings. In addition to honoring Cook, the tribute includes a special patriotic performance by the Moffitt chorale. Gaither High School’s Junior ROTC Color Guard will also present the colors and raise the flag.

There is A Cure For Cancer Since The Sixties! - Judyth Vary Baker
 
12:07
Judyth Vary Baker is an incredible brave woman who dare to speak out against the biggest industry in this world... BIG PHARMA and the Cancer Industry. Now she is 72 years old and want to make a difference by telling her story and share her knowledge. I discovered this beautifull lady via the Open Mind Conference 2015 in Denmark. She gave a stunning talk about her and Lee Oswald. The love of her life. He was used as a patsy when JFK was murdered. She had to be silend then, because they would have killed her too. When her youngest child left the 'nest', the time had come for Judyth to reveal her truth. Ole Dammegård is very proud to have Judyth as a friend. He learned a lot about the JFK assassination when Judyth spoke out. He found so much links to all kinds of other murder cases by his new found knowledge. It is all a matter of connecting the dots. About her early life Judyth Baker was born in South Bend, Indiana to Donald William and Glorianne Whiting Vary in 1943. She attended Manatee High School in Bradenton, Florida. Judyth was a wizard student with the highest IQ of her class, on October 17, 1958 Her stellar research and its results were soon noticed by professors and scientists, with high profile connections in the medical and political world. This resulted in invitations to science programs and science fairs nationwide. In March, 1961, at age 17, she became the first high school student allowed to attend the elite Science Writer’s Cancer Research Seminar, a 5-day national meeting of science writers and the world’s most important cancer research scientists, where her research was inspected by top American Cancer Society (ACS) officials, research scientists, and Nobel Prize winners, who began mentoring her. In April, 1961, she was invited by Director Dr. George Moore to work in his personal laboratory at Roswell Park Memorial Institute in Buffalo, New York, the oldest important cancer research center in the United States. There she conducted research on melanoma cancers and learned techniques for handling cancers induced by the SV40 monkey virus. She next enrolled in the medical technology program at St. Francis College in her home state of Indiana, where she considered becoming a nun as well as a scientist. Evidence of her conducting cancer research after her training at Roswell Park exists in newspaper articles and citations. Assigned to work with malignant melanoma, at Dr. Alton Ochsner’s suggestion, one of the 18-year-old's research projects is preserved in an Indiana Academy of Science's abstract entitled "Studies on the Increase in vitro of Mitotic Activity and Melanogenesis in the RPMI HA # 5 (7113) Strain Melano." (Proceedings of the Indiana Academy of Science. V. 71 (1961) p. 71): the abstract mentions that her cancer research was continuing at her lab at St. Francis. Her work with melanoma in 1961 reflected Dr. Ochsner’s research interests: Ochsner’s work in 1961-1962 on melanoma was important enough to be recorded in his official biography (Surgeon of the South --Wilds & Harkey, 1990, p. 136). They were all impressed that Judyth Vary had induced lung cancer in mice in record time in a high school lab. She was attending The University of Florida by Feb., 1962, under a full scholarship, where she resumed research in cancer-related areas under an umbrella of grants and permits. In the Spring of 1963, Ochsner offered her a summer internship at Ochsner Clinic in New Orleans, under the direction of the noted cancer research specialist, Dr. Mary S. Sherman, with the promise that she would receive a scholarship for early entry into Tulane Medical School that Fall. In mid-April, 1963, she arrived and was ready to begin her internship in Dr. Sherman's bone cancer lab. In 1963, Judyth was invited to New Orleans by famous surgeon Dr. Alton Ochnser to serve her country by taking part in another special cancer research project. Edward's Haslam's - author of "Mary's monkey", makes a case for the thesis that - as a accidental result of these experiments - the polio vaccin of the early sixties was contaminated with a cancer causing monkey virus, better known as SV-40. Hence, he argues this was one of the decisive reasons to keep the bioweapon project secret and hidden from the public, as well as Lee Harvey Oswald's involvement, which contradicts the Warren Commission's conclusion that he was a deranged communist nut without any connections. Haslam takes the reader on a quest to find an explanation for the alarming growth rate of soft tissue cancers in America. "Mary's Monkey" is becoming an underground bestseller with a top 100 position on Amazon.com. - She was indeed a promising student with a passion for cancer research, as is evidenced by numerous contemporary newspaper articles.

Integrative Analysis to Suggest Combination Therapies for Ovarian Cancer
 
07:26
This presentation is by Hannah Freid, an undergraduate student at Princeton University. Hannah describes her summer research project with the BD2K-LINCS DCIC in the Ma'ayan Lab at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. http://lincs-dcic.org/summer-research... http://icahn.mssm.edu/labs/maayan Ovarian cancer is the fifth deadliest cancer in women. Currently, drug treatments for ovarian cancer are limited to cytotoxic chemotherapeutic drugs which induce severe side effects and are effective for only a subset of patients. Here we present a computational pipeline to suggest drug combinations for ovarian cancer based on gene expression signatures. First, we analyzed the Mount Sinai Health System (MSHS) electronic medical records (EMR) to identify the drugs that are most commonly used to treat patients with ovarian cancer. Next, we processed the RNA-seq gene expression data and survival data collected from ovarian cancer tumors from patients as part of The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) project. From the TCGA RNA-seq data, we identified the up and down differentially expressed genes for each sample/patient. Next, using the LINCS L1000 data, we identified the drugs and small molecules that can maximally reverse the up and down differentially expressed genes in the patients with the worst prognosis, after subtracting the putative effects of the mostly commonly used chemotherapeutics. Our results suggest that chemotherapeutics used to treat leukemia might be strong candidates for combination therapy for worst prognosis ovarian cancer patients. In addition, we identified Palbociclib, a CDK4/6 inhibitor that was recently approved for breast cancer, as well as Brefeldin-a, a protein transport inhibitor, as a lead candidates for being effective in ovarian cancer as a single drug. Overall, this project demonstrates how the LINCS L1000 dataset can be used to suggest combination therapies for cancers and other diseases.
