Laura Jean Esserman, M.D., MBA, Director, Carol Franc Buck Breast Care Center; Professor of Surgery and Radiology, University of California San Francisco

Screening phase II agents for neoadjuvant breast cancer, matching drugs with patients depending on biomarker subsets, including modeling longitudinal information about individual patients and using adaptive randomization.

11:15 Personalizing NSCLC Therapy: The BATTLE-2 Program

Vassiliki Papadimitrakopoulou, M.D., Professor, Department of Thoracic/Head and Neck Medical Oncology, Medical Oncology, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center

Comparing the efficacy of experimental therapies within biomarker subsets of non-small-cell lung cancer using adaptive randomization with primary endpoint 8-week disease control.

11:45 Beyond I-SPY 2 and BATTLE

Donald Berry, Ph.D., Professor, Department of Biostatistics, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center

Extending the I-SPY 2 and BATTLE trial designs beyond breast and non-small-cell cancer, incorporating combinations of experimental agents and adapting therapies within as well as across patients.

Quality of Pre-Clinical Evidence Matters 

4:30 Chairperson’s Remarks

Peter Houghton, Ph.D., Director, Center for Childhood Cancer, Nationwide Children’s Hospital

4:35 Challenges in Translating Pre-Clinical Research into Benefit for Patients: Raising the Bar for Pre-Clinical Cancer Research

C. Glenn Begley, Ph.D., Senior Vice President, TetraLogic

There are multiple challenges translating research findings into drugs that ultimately benefit patients. Some are inherent in the disease and the models we employ, and are extremely difficult to address.Others are inherent to our processes, and may be more readily overcome.

5:05 Building More Predictive in vitro and in vivo Models to Identify Responder Populations Pre-Clinically

Emma Lees, Ph.D., Vice President, Oncology, NIBR Site Head Emeryville, Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research

5:35 Challenges to Accurately Translating Results from
Pre-Clinical Cancer Models to the Clinic

Peter Houghton, Ph.D., Director, Center for Childhood Cancer, Nationwide Children’s Hospital

Human tumor xenografts have been the predominant models for cancer drug development for about 30 years. However, there are concerns that results from such pre-clinical models do not translate into clinical reality.
