The Liquid Biopsy Series: Precision medicine: the impact of liquid biopsy
Dr. Bellosillo is the Head of the Molecular Biology Laboratory in the Pathology Department at Hospital del Mar (Barcelona, Spain). She is also Associate Professor at the Pompeu Fabra University (Barcelona). She is a member of different national and international scientific societies. Dr. Bellosillo has a wide experience in molecular biology applied to clinical diagnostics, as well as in translational research, having worked extensively in the area of liquid biopsy in recent years. Also working in the Instituto Hospital del Mar de Investigaciones Médicas (IMIM), she has conducted many research projects in the area of hematology and oncology, in which she has been the principal investigator. She has published more than 200 peer-reviewed publications (with an H-factor of 48) and developed two molecular biomarker related patents that are currently in the commercial operating phase.
Speaker name: Prof. Antonio Giordano
Prof. Giordano is the President and Founder of the Sbarro Health Research Organization (SHRO), which conducts research to diagnose, treat and cure cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and other chronic illnesses; moreover, he is a Professor of Molecular Biology at Temple University in Philadelphia, USA, and Professor in the Department of Pathology & Oncology at the University of Siena, Italy. In his research throughout the years, Dr. Antonio Giordano identified a tumor suppressor gene, Rb2/p130, that has been found to be active in the lung, endometrial, brain, breast, liver, and ovarian cancers. In 2011, Prof. Giordano and his team uncovered anti-tumor agents that might be effective in the treatment of mesothelioma, cancer caused by prolonged asbestos exposure. Prof. Giordano has published over 600 papers on gene therapy, cell cycle, genetics of cancer, and epidemiology. He is co-author of a book on the use of liquid biopsy: "Liquid Biopsy. New Challenges in the Era of Immunotherapy and Precision Oncology".
