Biosketch

VHIO’s ODysSey Group promotes translational research in precision oncology by integrating cancer molecular profiling data with clinical outcomes of oncology patients treated at the Vall d’Hebron University Hospital (HUVH).

To explore big and real-world data, we design and maintain comprehensive clinical-molecular databases and provide operational support to investigators interested in correlative analyses for hypothesis-generation and biomarker validation. We also assist investigators in sample size calculation, clinical trial design and downstream statistical analyses.

Our team also participates in international multi-omic data analyses projects and foster collaborative research in computational oncology. We are dedicated to connecting cancer researchers working on predictive and prognostic modelling, the identification of cancer drivers, molecular subtyping, primary-metastasis heterogeneity, microenvironment signatures and druggability in solid tumors.

Molecular Prescreening Program

In 2019, our group, together with Susana Aguilar and Jenifer Gonzalez, and in collaboration with VHIO’s Cancer Genomics Group led by Ana Vivancos, and Molecular Oncology Group, directed by Paolo Nuciforo, have performed tumor molecular profiling in over 1,100 cancer patients as candidates for enrollment in clinical trials. In total, 151 patients were treated with biomarker-matched innovative therapies as a result of this effort.

Interpretation of next-generation sequencing tests and educating clinicians on emerging biomarkers is another of our priority areas. During our Molecular Tumor Board meetings, we promote precision oncology by providing guidance regarding inclusion in early clinical trials with biomarker-guided targeted agents or immunotherapies.

STRATEGIC GOALS

Facilitate clinical-molecular correlative studies at VHIO:

  • Development and maintenance of clinical-molecular databases as a resource for clinicians, molecular pathologists and translational investigators.
  • Provide guidance to medical oncologists and cancer biologists during the design and interpretation of biomarker correlative studies, as well as development and validation of omics-based tests that have direct clinical application.
  • Promote evidence-based medicine.
  • Continued medical education with standardized reports of genomic alterations and weekly Molecular Tumor Boards. We facilitate data exchange among a wide range of experts for the review of patients’ medical histories and cancer molecular profiles in order to more precisely guide treatment decisions.

Collaborative research on Big and Real-World Data:

  • Encourage interactions among computational oncology scientists and preclinical-clinical researchers to promote the identification of cancer subtypes and druggable drivers.
  • Generate large databases that allow the study of complex associations between tumor omics, drug sensitivities and patient outcome.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • We have provided support to VHIO’s investigators working on clinical and preclinical research. This has resulted in several impactful publications in the field, oral presentations at top oncology conferences and statistical leadership in multiple phase 2 and 3 trials.
  • We have developed and explored tools that help translate the strong biological dependencies of colorectal cancer subtypes into druggability opportunities. We have also studied the impact of driver genes, transcriptomic subtypes and microenvironment features on prognosis of colorectal cancer patients.
  • Active member of the AACR Genomics Evidence Neoplasia Information Exchange (GENIE) project, a multi-phase, multi-year, international study that catalyzes precision oncology through the development of a regulatory-grade registry aggregating and linking clinical-grade cancer genomic data with clinical outcomes from tens of thousands of cancer patients treated at the participating institutions.
  • Co-development of the Molecular Tumor Board portal (MTBP), a clinical decision support system to select the most appropriate treatment for cancer patients based on genomics data, including clinical trial opportunities. The portal employs a variety of state-of-the-art tools to interpret the biological and clinical significance of tumor and germline alterations. The MTBP is regularly used in the Cancer Core Europe (CCE) Consortium’s Basket of Basket (BoB) trial, which is the first European multi-modular academic clinical trial in Europe and set to significantly advance basket trial design to-date by integrating molecular prescreening, the development of novel diagnostic tests including ctDNA, and assessing targeted therapies matched to those patients who will be most likely to benefit from them. An open access version of our MTBP technology, developed under CCE’s umbrella, is available at: http://mtbp.org.
