  Biography :

Prof. Sheu’s research interest focuses on identification and characterization of tumor-associated genes by using genomewide technologies and functional studies. In the past years, he had defined Rsf-1, also known as HBXAP, as a potent cancer-driving gene during cancer development and progression [1]. Significantly, Dr. Sheu demonstrated the interaction between Rsf-1 and SNF2H as the key for promoting oncogenic signaling in cancer cells, resulting in gross tumor growth [2] and drug resistance [3]. These findings enable Rsf-1 as an attractive target for new therapy development [4]. In recent years, Dr. Sheu’s studies further pointed out that Rsf-1 overexpression serves as a selecting barrier to allow outgrowth of cell clones with genetic defects in self-surveillance [5], that subsequently ease cancer cells to accumulate more genetic alterations [6]. Similar mechanism was found applicable for BRAF oncogenic mutations at caner initiation stage [7]. Achievements of those studies made Dr. Sheu won “Marquis Who’s Who in the World” in 2013, and the National Science Council (now the Ministry of Science and Technology) “Academic Research Award-Wu-Da-You Memorial Award” in 2014. In addition to functional characterization of Rsf-1, Dr. Sheu initiated his studies on head and neck cancer including oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) and nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). Based on comparative analyses between genomic and transcriptome maps, Dr. Sheu has successfully validated EGFR activation, either through gene amplification/overexpression or activation of down-stream targets, is the most frequent genetic event in OSCC [8]. On the other hand, deletion of 3p12.3-p14.2 and amplification of 3q26.2-q26.32 serve as genomic markers for advanced NPC [9], which might be the footprints of frequent Epstein-Barr virus reactivation [10]. Based on above findings, Dr. Sheu found LRIG1, a negative regulator for EGFR signaling, as a tumor suppressor in head and neck cancer through down-regulation of EGFR ligands and extracellular remodeling activity [11]. Using similar approach, Dr. Sheu also identified TLN1 amplification/over- expression responsible for OSCC migration and invasion, thus could be utilized as a good therapeutic target [12]. Furthermore, Rsf-1 [13] and haptoglobin [14] were found as valuable biomarkers for predicting clinical outcome and tumor recurrence of OSCC. Other interesting findings regarding cancer-driving genes in head and neck cancer are under preparation for paper submission. For examples, we recently discovered a novel keratin fusion event in OSCC by NGS technology. Several fusion isoforms were defined and some of them were found correlated with worse clinical outcome [ROC and US patents][15, 16]. We are currently studying biofunctions of these fusion types to see if keratin fusion could be a newly defined mechanism for squamous cell transformation and cancer development. With the working experiences on tumor-associated genes, Dr. Sheu therefore holds the knowledge and key techniques/materials to define the oncogenic signaling networks of newly defined oncogenes.

  Biography :

Pascal Mermillod has got his PhD in 1989 in Belgium (Catholic University of Louvain) on carcinogenesis markers in a Xenopus model. Then he worked as post-doc in the laboratory of Professors A. Massip and F. Dessy in the same university, where he got the first calves born in Belgium from frozen thawed in vitro produced embryos. He has been recruited by Inra in 1992 and has now more than 25 years experience in in vitro production of embryos from different domestic and wild species (cattle, sheep, goat, pig, deers) through in vitro maturation of primary oocytes, in vitro fertilisation and in vitro culture of resulting embryos up to the blastocyst stage. This also includes further use of the resulting embryos (quality parameters, cryopreservation, preimplantation genetic diagnosis). His work in this field leaded to 213 publications, including 23 review papers and 4 book chapters (cited 5392 times, H factor = 42). His work has been mainly focused on the regulation of pre implantation embryo development by oviduct originating factors and on oocyte differentiation during folliculogenesis, leading to the acquisition of developmental potential. The work of his team is now aimed at the study of interactions between gametes and embryos with somatic environment. The increased knowledge of oocyte differentiation and embryo physiology drawn from this work allows to improve the success rate of assisted reproductive techniques (embryo production and transfer, IVF, cloning, transgenesis and genome edition in pigs,…) that could be used to increase offspring of high genetic value females in domestic species and help to preserve endangered domestic breeds and wild species. He is reviewer for several international journals (Theriogenology, Reproduction, Biology of Reproduction, Molecular Human Reproduction and Development,…), editor for three journals (Animal, BMC Veterinary Research and Journal of Reproduction and Development) and expert for different grant agencies (France, Europe, USA, Canada,…). Pascal Mermillod is leading a research team including 10 researchers and engineers and 3 technicians. He has been deputy director the physiology of reproduction and behaviour research unit including more than 150 permanent staff from Inra (National Institute of Agronomical Research), Cnrs (National Centre of Scientific Research) and Tours University between 2006 and 2010. He is member of the executive committee of ICAR (International Congress of Animal Reproduction) and was chair of the organization of this congress in 2016 in Tours (France, 1,000 participants from 65 countries, 200 speakers, 5 days).

At Harvard Medical School, he developed a multi‐colorimetric labeling method for the study of coordinated expression of acetylcholine receptor subunits. His industrial experience started with a job at Bio‐Rad Laboratories, where he developed protocols and kits for antimicrobial susceptibility testing using flow cytometry. Later, he switched from wetlab benchwork to drylab bioinformatics analysis of sequence data when working for Genome Institute of Singapore. There, he played a key role for the development of paired‐end ditag technology and in sequence data analysis. He moved back to Taiwan in 2008 to work for Academia Sinica on developing DNA sequencing‐related biotechnologies and studying gene expression and regulation in normal and cancer cells. He is currently holding a number of patents related to NGS or cfDNA‐mediated diagnosis.

Biography
  Research Interest :

My current research focuses on three major subjects: breast cancer research (esp. earlyonset breast cancer (EOBC)), biotechnology development and genome assembly of M. cyclopis (Formosan macaque). These subjects are integrated by my interest in DNA sequencing. In 2016, I published a book entitled “Next-Generation Sequencing and Sequence Data Analysis”. In the book, I describe the evolution of sequencing technologies from Sanger sequencing to NGS, detailed mechanisms employed by Sanger sequencing and the major NGS platforms, genome assembly - history and methods, how sequencing libraries are prepared and how to analyze sequence data. DNA sequencing has been an essential component for my collaborations with other investigators. Breast cancer research aims to unravel EOBC etiopathology. Currently, we are working on an EOBC cohort comprising patients diagnosed with EOBC at age 40 or younger. Previous reports indicated a strongly correlation of EOBC with environmental impact on the genome. However, germline mutations may act as a genetic predisposition in the background to orchestrate EOBC tumorigenesis and/or development. We intend to integrate somatic mutations, CNVs (copy number variations) and germline mutations to obtain a comprehensive picture of the disease. Results have been very informative and inspiring, and extremely interesting. Biotechnology development aims to create novel methodologies for DNA sequencing and/or disease diagnosis. We recently published a biotechnology, called T oligo-primed polymerase chain reaction (TOP-PCR), for the amplification of minute cfDNA, so to facilitate diagnosis and NGS analysis. TOP-PCR has unprecedented efficiencies in both adaptor ligation and amplification. As an adaptor-dependent PCR method, TOP-PCR is able to act like a regular PCR, allowing us to amplify a small number of DNA fragments. We are planning to extend its applications in a number of directions including to replace regular PCR for certain novel applications. Besides, by analyzing microbial cfDNA in plasma, we have invented a method to identify microbes inside our body. This proof-of-concept study suggests that microbial cfDNA can be a valuable biomarker and a key player in cancer prognosis. In terms of M. cyclopis genome assembly, we have published its mitochondrial genome and are expecting to finish the nuclear genome assembly soon.

She pursued her post-doctoral ventures at Max-Planck Institute For Biophysical Chemistry (FRG), University Of California-Irvine and University Of Pittsburgh (USA). Currently, her projects mainly focus on translational-research and extrapolation of basic developmental mechanisms from model-systems like fruitfly (Drosophila) to human. Apart from this, her thrust areas of research interest include; Cancer Biology, Stem-Cell Biology and Homeotic-Gene Regulation. She is keen on studying in details the genetic factors, which presumably aid in understanding of mechanism by which “cancer stem cells” function in transforming a tissue from normal to cancerous states. Her research has a motive to further facilitate the perception of stem cell potential/mechanistic in areas of Regenerative Medicine, Translational Research and Anti-cancer therapy. Being involved in Clinical informatics, her students are also training a Cancer model and a Stem cell model, deploying Systems Biology approach and other Gene Networking Bio-Informatics tools. This novel area of research will hopefully lead to further understanding the tipping of balance from a stem cell/normal cell to a transformed cancer cell. Owing to her immense interest in science journalism and writing potential, she is now on the editorial board of several International Journals. Her Specialties Include: Research/Teaching/Mentoring/Science-Journalism
