A systemic approach in precision medicine has been to bridge anticancer pharmacological data to large-scale molecular tumor profiles using cell lines proxies for cancer patients. However, samples from different tumor microenvironments in the two model systems may exhibit distinct patterns of molecular activities – the architecture of cancer modulation through cumulative effects from interacting genes in functional/signaling pathways may vary. In this paper, we attempt to address these challenges by developing a multi-level analytical framework called TransPRECISE: Translational Personalized Cancer-specific Integrated Network Estimation. TransPRECISE uses Bayesian graphical regression models to infer on cancer-specific pathway circuitry which are then de-convolved to sample-specific pathway aberration scores. We use TransPRECISE to analyze proteomic data across 16 cell line lineages and 31 patient cancers. Through pan-cancer analysis, we investigate differential and conserved aspects of cancer-specific pathway networks across model systems and cancer lineages, identify matching avatar cell lines for patient tumor profiles and train prediction models for drug sensitivity in patients.
