Dr Gary Palmer – Foundation Medicine, Cambridge, USA

Dr Gary Palmer talks to ecancer at the 2012 WIN Symposium, Paris, about the FP7 project, WINTHER, which investigates next generation sequencing.


The WINTer project uses next generation sequencing by using paraffin tissue; however, the information created must be able to translate for use by a clinical oncologist in a practical setting.


Foundation Medicine’s involvement in the WINTHER trial is in the technology arm of the study, Arm A specifically. This involves identifying abnormalities in a patient’s tumour to better identify the best course of treatment. This can be used with either currently available drugs or drugs in clinical trials.
