Rachana Garg

School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania

United States

Biography

My interest in cancer research started when I undertook a dissertation project during my undergraduate studies at the Division of Molecular Oncology, Institute of Cytology and Preventive Oncology (ICPO), under the guidance of Dr. B.C. Das (Founder Director of ICPO, India). This research was focused on dissecting the relationship between human papilloma virus and AP-1 transcription factor in the development of oral cancer. I had the opportunity to work with biopsy tissue specimens from patients with oral premalignant lesions. During this project, I learned numerous molecular biology techniques and inherently developed a strong penchant to pursue a research career in the oral cancer field. After qualifying through a competitive nationwide exam, I was awarded a prestigious five-year predoctoral fellowship from the CSIR foundation, India. As a CSIR research fellow, I joined ACTREC, a pioneering institute dedicated to cancer research in India. My Ph.D. research in Dr. Maru’s laboratory involved studying the chemopreventive role of dietary curcumin in regulating phase I/II enzymes in vivo via AhR and Nrf2 transcription factors. Moreover, I demonstrated that curcumin regulates phorbol ester-induced biochemical and molecular alterations in murine skin via protein kinase C. With the notion of identifying potential clinical biomarkers and to continue my research interest, I studied the effect of dietary turmeric at different stages of oral carcinogenesis in an experimental animal model. I observed that dietary turmeric modulates DMBAinduced p21, MAPKinases and transcription factors (AP-1 and NF-kB) to alter cellular responses related to inflammation, proliferation and apoptosis. In Dr. Maru’s lab, I acquired significant expertise in molecular carcinogenesis and chemoprevention and became highly proficient in the use of in vivo models, including DMBA-induced hamster buccal pouch model of oral cancer. My time in his lab was very productive, with my thesis work culminating with six publications, (four as first author: Garg et al. Carcinogenesis 2008; Garg et al. Carcinogenesis 2008b; Garg et al. Toxicol Appl Pharmacol 2008 and Garg et al. JEPTO 2009), a book chapter, and a review article. I am proud that my work led to several prizes and awards at national/international conferences. I then intended to extend my research to a challenging area: to explore the signaling networks underlying carcinogenesis with the purpose of providing a molecular basis for drug design. Therefore, I moved to the US to join Dr. Marcelo Kazanietz’s Laboratory at the University of Pennsylvania, as a postdoctoral fellow. Dr. Kazanietz is one of the prominent researchers in the field of PKC signaling and cancer. Initially, I started with an ongoing project in the laboratory wherein we observed that transgenic overexpression of PKCe in the mouse prostate induces preneoplastic lesions, and I was the co-author of a 2011 Cell Cycle paper reporting the results of the work. Our study was highlighted in the News and Views Section of Cell Cycle. Dr. Kazanietz then allowed me to design my own project in which I combined my doctoral expertise with the knowledge of PKC biology acquired in his laboratory and successfully demonstrated, through a mechanistic study, that PKCe facilitates the assembly of TNFR-I complex to regulate the NF-kB pathway in prostate cancer (Garg et al., JBC 2012). My thorough bioinformatics analysis to dissect the transcriptional networks controlled by PKC isozymes recently resulted in another first-authored publication (Garg et al, PLoS One 2013). Besides, I encapsulated our current understanding of PKCs in a recently published review article (Garg et al, Oncogene, 2013). I am currently working on two projects that are close to submission to major journals. In the first, by means of cellular and transgenic mice models, I demonstrated that COX-2, a well-known NF-kB regulated gene, acts as a potential mediator of PKCe oncogenesis in prostate cancer, a study that has been supported by a postdoctoral fellowship from the United States Department of Defense. As the PI of this DOD-sponsored grant, I gained experience in cellular, genetic, pharmacological and bioinformatics approaches to delineate signaling pathways that contribute to malignant transformation and developed skills working with xenograft and transgenic mice models. In the second, I identified cooperativity between PKCe and Pten loss for prostate cancer progression.

Ann Richmond

Ingram Professor and Vice Chair Associate, Director of Education

Department of Cancer Biology

Vanderbilt Ingram Cancer Center

United States

Biography

Dr. Richmond received her PhD from Emory University in 1979. She joined Vanderbilt University Dept. of Cell Biology 1989. Currently, she serves as the Ingram Professor of Cancer Biology and Vice Chair of that department. A major question we are trying to answer in my laboratory is "What is the role of the inflammatory response in tumor progression". We are studying the role of proteins that promote the migration of inflammatory cells into tissues. These "chemotactic" proteins can educate leukocytes to either stimulate or inhibit tumor progression. These factors can also stimulate the growth of the tumor and recruit blood vessels into the tumor to provide a continuous supply of nutrients to feed tumor growth. We have tested with a variety of pharmaceutical drugs that shut down the inflammatory process and alter the expression of genes that recruit inflammatory cells into the tumor microenvironment. We are also evaluating how to deliver therapies that teach the patient's leukocytes to fight the growth of the tumor and switch from a pro-tumorigenic to an anti-tumorigenic state. We have also learned that this inflammatory process, combined with other genetic and environmental factors, contributes to mutations in genes that regulate the growth of cells. Some of these mutations make the cells capable of continuous growth and enable the cancer cells to spread throughout the body and grow in distant organs. By determining what genes become mutated or amplified in each patient's tumor and then providing therapies that specifically inhibit the activity of that mutated or amplified gene, we can deliver "personalized cancer treatment" that addresses the problem in that person’s specific cancer. This works so much better than the "one size fits all" approach often used previously in chemotherapy. Recently we have determined that inhibition of aurora kinases induce tumor cells to undergo senescence and when we inhibit aurora kinases while at the same time activate the tumor suppressor p53 or the death receptor DR5, melanoma cells die and tumors regress. We are also interested in evaluating how therapeutic agents that target driver mutations such as PI3K, RAS or BRAF affect the tumor microenvironment and the immune response to the tumor. We postulate that in some instances drug resistance comes in part due to deleterious effects of the therapy on the tumor microenvironment. We collaborate with medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, bioengineers, cellular and molecular biologists, and scientists in pharmaceutical companies to address the scientific questions we are asking. This TEAM interaction enables us to optimize our studies to make important breakthroughs in tumor biology and tumor therapy. Our research is funded by the TVHS Department of Veterans Affairs, the National Cancer Institute, and the Department of Defense. I work with a wonderful group of postdoctoral fellows, students, and laboratory scientists who dedicate their lives to providing better treatments for cancer patients.

Leandro Bueno Bergantin

Department of Pharmacology

Federal University of São Paulo

Brazil

Biography

Dr. Bergantin received his academic education at EPM-UNIFESP (Brazil) and UAM (Spain): degree in biomedicine (2008), MSc (2010) and PhD (2014). His research involves cell signaling mediated by Ca2+ and cAMP, skeletal and smooth muscles, peripheral and central nervous systems. His research work solved the enigma of the paradoxical effects produced by Ltype Ca2+ channel blockers (TOP 25 Hottest Articles - Biochemistry, Genetics and Molecular Biology - Cell Calcium - TOP 1 July to September 2013/ TOP 5 October to December 2013/ TOP 1 January to December 2013 full year/TOP 6 January to March 2014). Since 1975, several clinical and experimental studies have reported that acute and chronic administration of L-type Ca2+ channel blockers (CCB), such as nifedipine, produces reduction in arterial pressure associated with a paradoxical increase of sympathetic activity. Despite this sympathetic hyperactivity has been initially attributed to adjust reflex of arterial pressure, the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in this apparent sympathomimetic effect of the L-type CCB remained unclear for decades. In 2013, Dr. Bergantin and collaborators discovered that this paradoxical increase in sympathetic activity produced by L-type CCB is due to interaction of the Ca2+/cAMP signaling pathways. Then, the pharmacological manipulation of the Ca2+/cAMP interaction produced by combination of the L-type CCB used in the antihypertensive therapy, and cAMP accumulating compounds used in the antidepressive therapy, could represent a potential cardiovascular risk for hypertensive patients due to increase in sympathetic activity. In contrast, this pharmacological manipulation could be a new therapeutic strategy for increasing neurotransmission in psychiatric disorders and producing neuroprotection in the neurodegenerative diseases (Bergantin and Caricati-Neto, 2016 Eur J Pharmacol; Caricati-Neto et al., 2015 Pharm Res Perspect). Dr. Bergantin has published several articles in international journals, book chapters, and an international book. He is member of editorial board of several international journals.
