Dr Oliver Bogler – MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, USA

Dr Oliver Bogler talks to ecancer at the 2012 WIN Symposium in Paris about the WIN Consortium and clinical trials in biomarker research.

 

The WIN Consortium was founded in a joint effort between Dr John Mendelsohn of MD Anderson Cancer Center and Prof Alexander Eggermont of Institute Gustave Roussy and focuses on building international collaborations for further research into translational and personalised medicine.

 

Dr Bogler also discuses early phase clinical trials on biomarker research, with focus on the WINTHER trial, or WIN therapeutics. The trial aims to analyse the molecular characteristics of tumours and identify patient profiles; ultimately with a goal of using a variety of approaches to improve the lives of 200 patients, 50 from each participating centre. Also, noted is the Universal Biomarker project, a large-scale characterisation of tumours and attracting more centres to the WIN Consortium.
