Project Title:Metabolic heterogeneity in Glioblastoma
Project Summary:Glioblastoma (GB) is the most common and complex primary brain tumor in adults and has a dismal prognosis, which is attributed largely to the extreme heterogeneity in the cells that make up the cancer and the continual molecular, genetic and metabolic adaptations driving tumor initiation, propagation and resistance to conventional treatments. The most important clinical target to prevent these mechanisms of initiation, propagation and disease recurrence may be a subset of tumor cells, cancer stem cells. Hence, identifying targetable key features of this population is of great interest for the elaboration of strategies to prevent disease initiation and propagation as well as recurrence post treatments. In response to i) the limited success to treat GB that remains universally fatal, ii) the evidences pointing to tumor heterogeneity as the greatest obstacle to achieve therapeutic efficacy and iii) the increasing understanding and importance of bioenergetics in tumor biology and the critical need to integrate metabolism into treatment paradigms, we propose a new model residing in the unique and unprecedented hypothesis of an association between GB management, a distinct slow-cycling cancer stem cell subpopulation and metabolic targeting.
