  9. Wafik S El-Deiry

    Brown University, United States

    Wafik El-Deiry, MD, PhD, FACP is Associate Dean for Oncologic Sciences at the Warren Alpert Medical School, Director, Cancer Center at Brown University, and Director of the Joint Program in Cancer Biology at Brown and Lifespan. He is a Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Professor of Medical Science, and Mencoff Family University Professor at Brown. He sees patients in his weekly clinic at Rhode Island Hospital focused on care of patients with colorectal cancer and participates in clinical trials based on his laboratory’s research on novel therapeutics. He previously served as Deputy Director for Translational Research, co-Leader of the Molecular Therapeutics Program, Professor of Oncology, and the William Wikoff Smith Endowed Chair in Cancer Research at Fox Chase Cancer Center. From 2010 through 2014 Dr El-Deiry was the Rose Dunlap Professor of Medicine and Chief of Hematology-Oncology at Penn State. In 2009, El-Deiry became an American Cancer Society Research Professor. He was previously a tenured Professor of Medicine (Hematology-Oncology), Genetics, and Pharmacology at University of Pennsylvania, co-Leader of the Radiobiology and Imaging Program at the Abramson Cancer Center and Associate Director for Physician-Scientist Training in Hematology-Oncology when he left Penn in 2010. He earned MD/PhD degrees from University of Miami School of Medicine and completed internal medicine residency and medical oncology fellowship at the Johns Hopkins Hospital and the Johns Hopkins Oncology Center. As a practicing academic Oncologist, his scientific interest and expertise is in cell death, drug resistance in cancer and drug discovery and development. El-Deiry founded two companies, Oncoceutics, Inc. and p53-Therapeutics, Inc.

    El-Deiry discovered p21(WAF1) as a p53 target gene, universal cell cycle inhibitor, and tumor suppressor gene that for the first time explained the mammalian cell stress response. He discovered TRAIL receptor DR5 and its regulation by p53. TRAIL is part of the host immune system that suppresses cancer and its metastases. His lab created a knock-out mouse for TRAIL receptor DR5 and this mouse is tumor prone and develops an inflammatory syndrome in the lungs and gut after sub-lethal irradiation. He identified c-Myc as a major determinant of TRAIL sensitivity and demonstrated synergy between TRAIL therapy and multi-kinase inhibitor sorafenib. Building on his prior accomplishments, El-Deiry discovered ONC201/TIC10 as a first-in-class TRAIL pathway inducer that is orally bioavailable and crosses the blood-brain barrier to treat brain tumors. TRAIL and Foxo3a are required for the anti-tumor effect of ONC201 through dual blockade of ERK and Akt kinases that promotes the nuclear translocation of the Foxo3a transcription factor which directly regulates the TRAIL gene. Data from El-Deiry’s lab identified that ONC201 induces TRAIL receptor DR5 through an integrated stress response involving ATF4 and CHOP transcription factors. Patients with among the most aggressive gliomas (H3K27M mutant DIPG) have had exceptional responses to ONC201.

    As a physician-scientist, Dr El-Deiry has worked to bring new discoveries to the clinic. He is committed in the next phase of his career to unraveling the mechanisms involved in p53 pathway restoration by candidate therapeutics his lab has discovered. This is exciting as he is defining a novel class of anti-cancer drugs with p53 pathway restoration and S-phase checkpoint targeting and recognizing ATF4 as a major transcription factor mechanism for p53 pathway restoration in p53-null or p53 mutant tumor cells. He is establishing transcriptomic and proteomic data sets with chemotherapy that acts through p53, and with novel small molecules that restore the p53 pathway in p53-deficient or mutant p53 expressing cells. He is exploiting medicinal chemistry and organoid technologies to perform his translational science that is leading to clinical trials some of which he leads. Dr El-Deiry conducts basic and translational clinical oncology therapeutics research through funded NIH grants, Foundations and industry. He is a member of the ASCI, AAP, Past President of the Interurban Clinical Club, previous Chair of ASCO’s Tumor Biology Track, and past Chair of an NIH Study Section on Cancer Therapeutics. Dr El-Deiry has trained many students and post-doctoral fellows, physician-scientists, and continues to mentor junior scientists and faculty in basic and translational cancer research.

  24. Mone Zaidi

    Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, United States

    Mone Zaidi graduated in medicine from King George’s Medical College, India, and trained clinically at the Hammersmith Hospital, London, under the tutelage of Iain MacIntyre, FRS. After obtaining a PhD and MD from the University of London, Dr Zaidi held appointments as Lecturer at the Royal Postgraduate Medical School and Senior Lecturer and Honorary Consultant at St. George’s Hospital Medical School for over 8 years. In 1999, he moved to Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York as Professor of Medicine and Founding Director of The Mount Sinai Bone Program. Zaidi has discovered mechanisms of skeletal homeostasis in health and its dysregulation in common and rare diseases. These studies, spanning over 30 years, included the first description of calcium sensing in the osteoclast and the discovery that locally released nitric oxide acts to suppress bone removal. In 2003, his group published evidence for a pituitary–bone axis of medical significance, in which pituitary hormones affect the skeleton directly. More recently, he found that inhibiting FSH not only increased bone mass, but also reduced body fat and increased thermogenesis – in essence, laying the firm foundation for his new humanized monoclonal FSH antibody to treat both osteoporosis and obesity. This corpus of work was selected by Nature Medicine as one of eight “Notable Advances” in biomedicine for 2017. Zaidi’s research was funded by the Medical Research Council of the UK, and since 1997, by the US National Institutes of Health. He is an elected member of the American Society for Clinical Investigation, Association of American Physicians, the Interurban Clinical Club (established by Sir William Osler in 1905) of which he was President, the Practitioners’ Society of New York (the oldest medical society in the US), and the Association of Professors of Medicine. Zaidi was made Master of the American College of Physicians, received the Harrington Scholar-Innovator Award, was elected as Fellow of the American Association of Advancement of Science, and is recipient of three honorary doctorates.
