Giulio Francia (Biography
Giulio Francia

Dr. Francia began his career by undertaking a PhD with Dr. Ian Hart at the Imperial Cancer Research Fund in London, UK, which has since evolved into Cancer UK. After his PhD, he trained with Dr. Robert Kerbel in Toronto, Canada, on aspects of metastasis, therapies for metastatic disease, and tumor resistance to therapy. He is now Assistant Professor at The University of Texas at El Paso, where he is attempting to set up a research program that is internationally recognized for pioneering new cancer therapeutic ideas, and for generating in vivo models to help translate laboratory findings into the clinic - by developing new metastatic tumor models, and by refining those he has already established.

A. Bardelli (Biography
A. Bardelli

Full Professor at Dept. of Oncology, University of Torino, Director of the Laboratory of Molecular Oncology and deputy Director of the Candiolo Cancer Institute-IRCCS, Torino, Italy. As a postdoc at the Johns Hopkins University he performed the first comprehensive mutational profile of protein and lipid kinases in colorectal cancers (CRC). As an independent investigator Prof Bardelli translated these findings into clinical practice by unveiling the molecular landscape of response and resistance to EGFR, HER2 and BRAF blockade in CRC. He recently developed innovative blood-based tests (liquid biopsies) to monitor patient’s response during treatment. A future focus of his lab is to study how the emergence and evolution of drug-resistant clones can be restrained to improve the efficacy of anticancer agents, that is to develop therapies that adapt to tumor’s evolution. Prof Bardelli has been listed in the Thomson Reuters List of Highly Cited Researchers. He is the author of over 150 peer-reviewed manuscripts (H factor 68).
