Nicolas Alcala was invited to give the keynote lecture at Stanford’s Evolgenome seminar series for the 10-year anniversary of Stanford’s Center for Evolutionary and Human Genomics (CEHG). He focused on the team’s work on quantifying tumor evolutionary forces using organoid experimental models and on identifying tumor ecological strategies from multi-omic data. You can see a
This August the RCG team headed to Vienna to present the LungNENomics and MESOMICS projects at the World Conference on Lung Cancer (WCLC). Nicolas Alcala gave talks on the evolution of lung neuroendocrine tumours (LNETs), and understanding inter-patient heterogeneity in malignant pleural mesothelioma, whilst Alexandra Sexton-Oates and Emilie Matthian presented their work on multi-omic characterisation
Matthieu Foll and Lynnette Fernandez-Cuesta received a Rare Cancers Research Program (RCRP) Concept Award (FY21) from the US Department of Defense office of the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP) to study the intra-tumor heterogeneity of pleural mesothelioma at the single-cell level.
Lynnette Fernandez-Cuesta and Matthieu Foll presented the RCG research advances on the molecular characterisation of lung neuroendocrine tumor during the European Association of Nuclear Medicine Multidisciplinary Days (Multidisciplinary Days – EANM’22), in the symposium entitled “Imaging, Targeted Radionuclide Therapy of Lung NETs – Current and Future Directions”. This is part of our ongoing effort to
Emilie Mathian and Matthieu Foll gave lectures on deep-learning algorithm for histopathological images and multi-omics characterisation of tumors, respectively, at the European Scientific Institute precision oncology summer school (PRECISION ONCOLOGY Presentation – ESI Archamps)
Alexandra Sexton-Oates presented an education session on the molecular classification of small cell lung cancer and other neuroendocrine neoplasms at the Pulmonary Pathology Society biennial meeting in Cork, Ireland.
Alexandra Sexton-Oates will give a talk on the molecular characterisation of small cell lung carcinoma and other neuroendocrine lung neoplasms at the PPS Biennial Meeting in Cork, Ireland. The PPS aims to promote education, research, and modern clinical practice in pulmonary pathology, and it was a real honor for Alexandra to be given the opportunity
Mixed feelings (pride and sadness) of seeing our talented PhD student, Lise Mangiante, moving to her next career step: an amazing postdoc in Christina Curtis’ lab!!
Lynnette Fernandez-Cuesta presented the Rare Cancers Genomics initiative in these discussion series aiming at strengthening the collaboration between IARC-WHO and the ISC III.
Congratulations to the whole team! One invited talk, four abstracts selected for oral presentations, and two Early Career Education Awards! We will be presenting our recent data on the MESOMICS, lungNENomics, Artificial Intelligence and Cancer Evolution projects!
