Flavia Michelini
Research Associate
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center

Flavia Michelini was born and educated in Italy. She received her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from “Tor Vergata” University in Rome. In 2010, she started her PhD program in Fabrizio d’Adda di Fagagna’s laboratory at the FIRC Institute of Molecular Oncology in Milan, working on a novel class of small non-coding RNAs named DDRNAs, involved in the DNA damage response. In 2014, she obtained her Ph.D. in Molecular Medicine from the European School of Molecular Medicine. As a postdoctoral fellow in the same laboratory, she uncovered that DNA double-strand breaks trigger the transcription of long non-coding RNAs named dilncRNAs, which are DDRNA precursors and are important for the site-specific signaling of an appropriate DNA damage response and DNA repair. In 2019 she became Research Associate in Maurizio Scaltriti’s laboratory at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York. In the last two years she worked on translational research-based projects, aimed at understanding the mechanism of action of antibody drug conjugates directed towards HER2 and HER3 across different cancers.

Gail Lewis Phillips
Principal Scientist, Discovery Oncology
Genentech

I head a translational research lab in Discovery Oncology at Genentech that investigates cell membrane receptors as targets for development of cancer therapeutics, with emphasis on the HER2/erbB2 pathway. Our early research efforts focused on biology and preclinical development of anti-HER2 antibodies for HER2-amplified breast cancer. This work contributed to the development and approval of both Trastuzumab and Pertuzumab. Subsequently, we developed antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) designed to selectively deliver potent cytotoxic agents to HER2-positive tumor cells, resulting in approval of Trastuzumab emtansine (T-DM1) for HER2-positive early and metastatic breast cancer. We are currently exploring use of T-DM1 in other cancers that overexpress HER2 as well as investigating new HER2-directed ADCs utilizing cytotoxic agents with different mechanisms of action. We have since expanded our studies on ADCs to include exploration of different targets, different antibody formats and novel drugs for potential new ADCs.
