Michael Pellini, President and CEO of Foundation Medicine, will give a presentation titled “Clinical Application of Comprehensive Cancer Genomic Analysis Utilizing Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) in Clinical Oncology” at GTC’s 6th Oncology Biomarkers Conference in San Francisco, CA on March 20–22, 2013.

Advances in our understanding of cancer biology and the explosion of discoveries emerging as academic and public efforts worldwide apply NGS to cancer genomes are being translated into real clinical benefits for cancer patients. The elucidation of genomic changes to inform rationally targeted therapies is becoming a reality and the pace of this translation from bedside to bench and back is accelerating. Foundation Medicine has developed a CLIA-certified pan-cancer diagnostic assay based on NGS technology to comprehensively interrogate all cancer-related genes using minimal DNA from FFPE tumor specimens to identify all classes of genomic alterations at high sensitivity and specificity.

Benefits of Dr. Pellini’s talk include:

1. Understand how comprehensive genomic sequencing is being applied in the clinic
2. Understand the benefits of comprehensive genomic sequencing vs. traditional hot-spot sequencing based on real clinical cases
3. Describe specific cases where targeted therapeutic options based on targeted therapies have resulted in improved patient outcomes

Dr. Pellini came to Foundation Medicine from Clarient, a GE Healthcare Company, where he held the position of President and Chief Operating Officer. Prior to his tenure with Clarient, Dr. Pellini served as Vice President of Life Sciences at Safeguard Scientifics, Inc. Prior to Safeguard, he was EVP and Chief Operating Officer at Lakewood Pathology Associates. Dr. Pellini received a B.A. from Boston College, an M.B.A. from Drexel University and an M.D. from Jefferson Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University.

The 6th Oncology Biomarkers conference is part of the Biomarker Summit 2013 and runs concurrently with two co-located tracks, which are:

2nd Neurological Biomarkers
2nd Inflammatory & Immunological Biomarkers

The summit will discuss a wide range of issues such as biomarker identification and validation strategies, patient stratification, enabling omics technologies, bioinformatics and systems biology techniques, regulatory and reimbursement trends and the development of companion diagnostics. These areas will be addressed in an intimate and highly interactive environment with perspectives from industry, academia and the public sector.
