¿What do we need to design a good proposal? A good idea - Scientific Excellence / high potential of innovation - The Idea must adjust to the elegibility of the Call and local/ international policies A good writting, to: - Sell the idea/ Convince evaluators Collaborative projects: - A balanced consortium/ good collaborators

EU Example: Mo. Tri. Color Clinical Assays Hypothesis Clinical Assay 1: mesenchymal subtype To test if CRCs are characterized by a mesenchymal subtype responsive to inhibitors of TGF-b signalling combined with chemotherapy Clinical Assay 2: BRAF mutant-like (BRAFmlike) To test if tumours with a BRAFm -like gene expression pattern are responsive to vinorelbine Clinical Assay 3: Microsatellite instable (MSI) like To test whether checkpoint blockade therapies are also beneficial for the larger group of MSI-like tumours Expected impacts FIRST MAJOR MOTRICOLOR IMPACT: THREE NOVEL THERAPEUTIC STRATEGIES FOR CRC PATIENTS WITH ADVANCED DISEASE SECOND MAJOR IMPACT: PIONERING WORK LEADING TO A FIRST COMPANION DIAGNOSTIC TEST IN CRC.

Main Objective/s • To stratify CRC patients based on molecular signatures and match them

Main Objective/s • To stratify CRC patients based on molecular signatures and match them to specific therapies • TGFβ gene signature • BRAFm gene signature • MSI gene signature

Specific objectives • To perform 3 two-stage single arm multi center open-label phase II

Specific objectives • To perform 3 two-stage single arm multi center open-label phase II studies in molecularly selected patients: • To determine anti-tumour activity • To characterize the safety and tolerability • To determine other anti-tumour activity parameters (PFS, CB, OS) • To explore mechanism of response and resistance to the treatments • To monitor circulating DNA in blood

Impact • Three novel therapeutic strategies for CRC patients with advance disease – Mo.

Impact • Three novel therapeutic strategies for CRC patients with advance disease – Mo. Tri. Color data: ground-breaking for further studies in CRC – Further clinical development in Europe • Pioneering work leading to a first companion diagnostic (predictive) test in CRC: a cutting edge – Agendia: worldwide positioning in cancer diagnostics • Extended impacts – New innovative and cost effective therapeutic approach for CRC patients – Pioneering work in identifying patients to most sensitive therapies and stratify them – Additional biomarkers of response prediction for CRC (Intra.
