    Collapse research overview
    Dr. Samuel's laboratory focus is currently in the field of pediatric sarcoma translational research; the main emphasis is in potential biomarkers related to Ewing Sarcoma derived exosomes in the pediatric population. Other ongoing collaborative research is on novel therapeutics for refractory or recurrent Ewing Sarcoma and Osteosarcoma patients.

    The Clinical Utility of Extracellular Vesicle miRNAs as Biomarkers of Chemosensitivity in Relapsed and Refractory Pediatric Ewing Sarcoma

         (SAMUEL, GLENSON)Jul 1, 2014 - Jun 30, 2017
    Alex's Lemonade Stand Young Investigator
    Exosomes as Biomarkers to Monitor Disease Progression and Response to Therapy in Ewing Sarcoma
    Role Description: For the first time to characterize exosomes released from Ewing sarcoma tumor cells and to study their unique contents in order to develop a biomarker for tumor presence/recurrence and response to treatment.
    Role: Principal Investigator

    Exosomes as biomarkers of disease and therapy-resistance in Ewing Sarcoma
    Role Description: Characterize and Identify predictive exosome-based microRNA biomarkers of chemoresistance and disease recurrence for Ewing sarcoma.
    Role: Principal Investigator

    Exosome miRNAs as biomarkers and targets for chemoresistance in Ewing Sarcoma
    Role Description: exploitation of Ewing Sarcoma tumor derived exosomal microRNAs (miRNAs) in order to provide a simple and cost effective “liquid biopsy” and the identification of potential therapeutic targets to combat chemoresistance based on these exosomal microRNA biomarkers.
    Role: Co-Principal Investigator

    Identifying novel kinesin inhibitors for the therapeutic management of recurrent and/or progressive pediatric Ewing Sarcoma and Osteosarcoma
    Role Description: Discovery and validation of combination kinesin motor protein inhibitors both in vitro and in vivo for the purpose of use in pediatric patients with recurrent or progressive (refractory) Ewing Sarcoma and Osteosarcoma
    Role: Co-Principal Investigator

    Exosomal microRNAs to enhance chemosensitivity and advance precision medicine in pediatric Ewing Sarcoma
    Role Description: Identify and design therapeutically relevant miRNA mimic or trap payloads to enhance chemotherapy sensitivity in Ewing Sarcoma cells. Combination of bioinformatic tools and in vitro assays will be used to refine 63 previously identified miRNAs and isolate specific miRNAs which may impact chemosensitivity within a panel of 8 Ewing Sarcoma cell lines. Engineer exosomes to deliver therapeutically relevant miRNA mimic or trap payloads to EWS cells and tumors.
