Proteomics Analysis of Brain Meningiomas in Pursuit of Novel Biomarkers of the Aggressive Behavior

Meningiomas are the most common benign intracranial tumors and their first-line treatment is surgical removal if the lesion can be largely removed at sufficiently low risk. However, a subset of patients develops more aggressive tumors. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), meningiomas are classified as typical (1), atypical (ll) and anaplastic (lll); up to 20% of patients may have atypical meningiomas and 1-3% may develop anaplastic or malignant subtypes [1]. These aggressive subtypes of tumors typically exhibit more rapid tumor progression, invasiveness and recurrence precluding complete surgical removal and requiring additional therapies of radiosurgery/radiotherapy and chemotherapy.

The HUPO ECR Welcomes a New Member, Jessica Brandi

Jessica Brandi is a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow from the University of Verona (Italy). She obtained her PhD in Molecular Industrial and Environmental Biotechnology in 2015, collaborating in research aimed to clarify the role of pancreatic cancer stem cells in the origin and progression of pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Her research activity is mainly focused on projects aimed at the biochemical phenotyping of cell lines, tissues, and biological fluids, by using multi-omics approaches. She is interested in the analysis of molecular mechanisms involved in the pathophysiology of diseases (mainly cancer, but also skin disease, neurological disorders) in order to discover potential biomarkers and therapeutic targets. In October 2020 she became a Board member and Secretary of the Young Proteomics Investigators Club (YPIC), an enthusiastic group of young scientists which actively participate in supporting the ECR community.
