Biognosys Supports Cancer Scout, a Large-Scale Multi-Omics Research Project to Accelerate Personalized Cancer Medicine

Share

Biognosys, a leader in next-generation proteomics solutions for drug discovery and development, announces today that it is supporting Cancer Scout as Proteomics provider.

Cancer Scout is a large-scale joint research project led by University Medical Center Göttingen and Siemens Healthineers. The project received funding of EUR 10 million by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)1.

The objective of Cancer Scout is to provide a new Artificial Intelligence tool for precision medicine in the fight against cancer. The research project will analyze and combine genomics, proteomics, and pathology data through Artificial Intelligence to generate a "digital biopsy" of molecular changes in tumors. Identifying these molecular changes can support early and accurate cancer diagnosis and predict personalized therapies for a patient’s tumor.

Oliver Rinner, PhD, CEO and founder of Biognosys states: “We are excited to be part of this visionary multi-omics research project and contribute to the development of more personalized clinical diagnostics and therapies for cancer with our proteomics solutions.”

Biognosys was selected as the provider for the Proteomics data analysis in Cancer Scout, based on its unique technologies and workflows for large-scale proteomics, comprehensive quality standards for clinical research, and extensive expertise in precision oncology.

Biognosys’ discovery proteomics platform utilizes proprietary, patented Hyper Reaction Monitoring (HRM™) mass spectrometry technology to quantify complete proteomes with unmatched precision, depth, and reproducibility. This solution can be applied with high throughput in large-scale studies involving thousands of samples from a broad range of clinical sample types.

Professor Philipp Ströbel, Director of Pathology at the University Hospital Göttingen, comments: “Combining digital pathology with proteomics and other omics data is essential to identify the full spectrum of molecular changes in tumors and enable truly personalized cancer care.”

Christian Wolfrum,Head of New Business Development and Planning at Siemens Healthineers, adds: “We are excited to work with Biognosys to generate novel scientific insights in Cancer Scout and translate these into personalized cancer care solutions for clinical practice.”

CAPRISA and Evotec Launch New Project to Fast-Track New Technology for HIV Prevention25.10.2021 13:53:00 CEST | Press release

Today, at a side meeting during the AU-EU Ministerial Summit in Kigali, Rwanda, Prof Salim Abdool Karim, Director of CAPRISA, announced a collaboration with a leading life science company Evotec for the designing and development of CAP256, a broadly neutralizing antibody against HIV. The project is a major expansion of the development of an antibody originally developed jointly by CAPRISA and the Vaccine Research Center (VRC) of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases of the US NIH. This new project is a major boost for the CAP256 antibody as a potential tool in the fight against HIV in Africa and showcases the potential of African researchers to fight the continent’s high-burden diseases. The principal aim of the new joint project is to change the course of the HIV epidemic in Africa, which has 70% of the global HIV burden. CAP256, isolated from a South African woman by CAPRISA and the VRC, has demonstrated a good safety profile in Phase I studies. The next step is t
