Dr Michael Pellini – Foundation Medicine, Cambridge, USA

Dr Michael Pellini talks to ecancer at the 2012 WIN Symposium, Paris, about the investigation of next generation sequencing in the WINTHER project.

 

Dr Pellini and his company are researching targeted therapies and new testing methods, but he notes that these methods are part of a global effort to work through the challenges cancer presents.

 

Dr Pellini sees the WIN Consortium as a group of thought leaders attacking problems from a medical and global perspective. Foundation Medicine’s role in the WINTHER project, short for WIN Therapeutics, is comprehensively profiling each patient’s tumour.

 

Previously, molecular testing occurred with only a few biomarkers analysed. Next generation sequencing gives a much larger picture, but is very complex and expensive. Another aim of the study is to make this method practical and accessible in all clinical settings.
