Can in vitro and ex vivo data be used to identify biomarkers for drug sensitivity?--Precision Health March Seminar

Matt Soellner

Matt Soellner Matt Soellner
Precision Health at the University of Michigan (U-M) invites you to a seminar on Wednesday, March 13, to hear speaker Matt Soellner, PhD, Research Assistant Professor in U-M's Department of Internal Medicine, present "Can in vitro and ex vivo data be used to identify biomarkers for drug sensitivity?"

The seminar will include Zingerman's refreshments and a Q&A session after the presentation. Registration will close when full.

Abstract:
In this presentation, I will discuss our ongoing efforts to identify biomarkers for drug efficacy in a panel of putative drugs for triple negative breast cancer (TNBC). We are currently testing and refining biomarkers in TNBC for drug efficacy using a panel of ~400 investigational drugs and further, using the discovered biomarkers to identify optimal drug combinations. Our central hypothesis is that biomarkers of drug efficacy in TNBC can be leveraged to identify optimal drug combinations for synergy in preclinical models of TNBC.



The Precision Health Seminar Series invites expert speakers to share meaningful, relevant, and late-breaking research on varied aspects of precision health. The interdisciplinary educational series, which takes place monthly during the academic year, features topics ranging from genetics to big data to health implementation (and much more) and is open to students, faculty, practitioners, staff, trainees, and the general public. Our goal is to increase understanding of precision health data, tools, and applications, to engage the academic community to enhance precision health research, and to support the implementation of precision health to health systems.
