CRISPR/Cas9 screens to investigate mechanisms of cancer drug resistance

Presenters Paul Diehl, PhD, COO, Cellecta and Guotai Xu, PhD, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC)

After a brief introduction of Cellecta technologies by Paul Diehl, Guotai Xu, from MSKCC will speak about recently published research on endocrine therapy resistance.


Over 70% of breast cancers depend on Estrogen-Receptor (ER) for growth and are treated with endocrine therapy. 40% of those tumors also harbor mutations in the PIK3CA gene, which are targeted by PI3Kα inhibitor alpelisib in the clinic. However, intrinsic and adaptive drug resistance is the norm with these agents, and mechanisms of resistance are still largely unknown in the clinic. Dr. Xu will discuss the results from CRISPR/Cas9 screens that may improve understanding of endocrine therapy and PI3Kα inhibitor resistance, and may assist in the development of therapeutic strategies to prevent or revert this resistance. 

Please register for the April 27 event. Space is limited.
