Learners enrolled: 791
Cancer research has been significantly aided by advancements in proteogenomics technologies, where proteomics information derived from mass spectrometry is used to complement genomics using next generation sequencing. With the recent advent of Cancer Moonshot Project, the critical role that proteogenomics can play in improving cancer patient treatment is increasingly being recognized. This course will utilize advanced genomic and proteomic technologies and their data from high-quality human biospecimens to identify potentially actionable therapeutic molecular targets. This course is a part of a workshop by experts in the fields of proteomics and proteogenomics in cancer research from the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard and Indian Institute of Technology Bombay. The course will comprise interactive lectures with case studies, hands-on sessions and demonstrations on proteogenomics aimed at accelerated understanding of cancer and will cover the principles of proteogenomics followed by experimental sessions, where proteomics data using LC-MS/MS will be processed and analyzed. The next step will be to integrate the proteomics data with genomics data, from The Cancer Genome Atlas for the proteogenomics analysis. Lectures and demonstrations on different computational methods will be performed for statistical data analysis of proteogenomics data.

Instructor bio

Prof. Sanjeeva Srivastava

IIT Bombay
Prof. Sanjeeva Srivastava Dr. Sanjeeva Srivastava is a Professor and group head of proteomics laboratory at the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay. He obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Alberta and post-doc from the Harvard Medical School in the area of proteomics, stress physiology and has specialized expertise in applications of data enabled sciences in global health, developing country and resource limited settings. He joined IIT Bombay in 2009 as an Assistant Professor and currently working as Professor. Current research in his group centers on biomarker and drug target discovery and deciphering the protein interaction networks in complex human diseases (gliomas) and infectious diseases (malaria) using high throughput proteomics, protein microarrays and mass spectrometry. Dr. Srivastava is an active contributor to global proteomics science and innovation. He serves on the Executive Council of Human Proteome Organization (HUPO) and Proteomics Society, India (PSI). He has organized three successful international conferences & workshops at IIT Bombay PSI-2014, Targeted Proteomics International Symposium in 2015 and 2018. He has published four special issues as editor, Proteomics in India for Journal of Proteomics; Proteomics Research in India for Nature India, Protein Arrays for Proteomics and Neglected Tropical Infectious Diseases for Proteomics Clinical Applications. Having an extensive teaching experience at IITB and experience of conducting proteomics courses at CSHL, New York provided him with the background to increase proteomics education for the global community. One of his special contributions has been the development of e-learning resources (MOOC mass spectrometry and interactomics courses; Virtual Proteomics Laboratory). He has made first ever proteomics documentaries Proteomics: Translating the Code of Life and Human Proteome Project (HPP). He has directed HUPO Perspective in Proteomics video interview series, which is hosted on HUPO website.
