Invited Speakers

Professor Lars Bullinger

Lars Bullinger studied Medicine at the University of Heidelberg (Germany) where he received his M.D. degree in 1999 and started his residency in Internal Medicine. In 1999, he moved to the University Hospital of Ulm (Germany), where he continued to work on molecular genetic analyses in hematological malignancies. From 2001 through 2003, he carried out post- doctoral work at the Stanford University (USA) where he was involved in gene expression profiling of leukemia. From 2004 through 2009, he finished his medical training in Internal Medicine and Hematology/Oncology at the University Hospital of Ulm and participated in many clinical trial activities. In parallel, he built up his own research group focusing on the dissection of the molecular pathogenesis of cancer by using “omics” approaches. In 2010, Lars Bullinger joint the Dana Farber Cancer Institute of the Harvard Medical School (USA) for a Sabbatical on next generation sequencing (NGS). Funded by a Heisenberg scholarship of the German Research Foundation he returned to the University Hospital of Ulm (Germany) in 2011 where he was appointed an assistant professorship position and in 2014 promoted to a full Heisenberg professor for “Personalized Tumor Therapy”. He has continued to play a key role in translational research focusing on the integrative analyses of “omics” and NGS data with the aim to further refine molecular tumor classification and to implement insights into innovative precision medicine approaches with a strong focus on acute myeloid leukemia (AML). In 2017, Lars Bullinger was appointed a full professorship at the Charité University Medicine in Berlin and he is now the Medical Director of the Department of Hematology, Oncology and Tumorimmunology at the Virchow Campus and the Coordinator of the Charité Leukemia Program

Professor Judith Trotman

Professor Judith Trotman is the Director of the Haematology Clinical Research Unit at Concord Hospital, Sydney. She has led international research collaborations establishing PET scanning as the gold standard imaging modality for follicular lymphoma, and secured MBS funding for PET for indolent lymphoma. She is an ALLG SAC member and principal investigator for several national/international lymphoma trials collaborations, incl. RATHL, REMARC, RePLy, IRIC, and now PETReA, the recently opened study of PET-response adapted therapy in FL. She is a board member of the Australian Clinical Trials Alliance (ACTA). Committed to cross-centre collaboration in recruitment Dr Trotman is co-inventor of the ClinTrial Refer App which has increased patient cross-referral across 20 cancer trial networks globally.
