OCCPR: A Leader in Cancer Proteomics and Proteogenomics

The mission of the NCI’s Office of Cancer Clinical Proteomics Research (OCCPR) is to improve prevention, early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer by enhancing the understanding of the molecular mechanisms of cancer, advance proteome and proteogenome science and technology development through community resources (data and reagent), and accelerate the translation of molecular findings into the clinic. This is achieved through OCCPR-supported programs such as the Clinical Proteomic Tumor Analysis Consortium (CPTAC), partnerships with Federal agencies, and collaborations with international organizations/institutions.

Researchers Team Up to Catalog the Landscape of Circular RNA in Cancer

University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center researchers Arul Chinnaiyan, Alexey Nesvizhskii and colleagues have recently teamed up to catalog circular RNA (circRNA) in multiple cancers and conducted initial research that suggests these stable structures could serve as cancer markers in blood or...


CPTAC Develops PepQuery for Novel Peptide Identification and Validation

Integrative proteogenomic methods use mass spectrometry (MS)-based proteomic database for identifying new genomic alterations and validating novel protein sequences as potential disease biomarkers or therapeutic targets. The customized database approach is time consuming and not feasible for...


Update on Behalf of NCI’s Cancer Imaging Program (New CPTAC Histopathology Images)

Built on a continuous partnership between National Cancer Institute’s (NCI’s) Cancer Imaging Program and the Clinical Proteomic Tumor Analysis Consortium (CPTAC), NCI’s The Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA) releases a newly improved CPTAC histopathology interface. The interface hosts histopathology...


NCI Proteomics Assay Portal Releases 660 Mouse MRM-MS Plasma Assays

Built on a continuous partnership between National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the University of Victoria Genome British Columbia Proteomics Centre, NCI’s CPTAC Assay Portal releases 660 mouse multiple reaction monitoring-mass spectrometry (MRM-MS) plasma...


ICPC Korea University Team Proteogenomically Characterizes Early-Onset Gastric Cancer

The incidence of early-onset gastric cancer (EOGC), a type of cancer that occurs in younger patients and found throughout the stomach, is markedly elevated in the Republic of Korea. As a country with the highest rates worldwide in both sexes, there is a need to identify molecular...


Proteogenomics Approach Identifies DPYSL3 Gene in Triple-Negative Breast Cancer

Claudin-Low (CLOW) tumors are classified as a subset of triple-negative breast cancers and account for a minority of breast cancer cases. But until now, there has been little study of their unique biological features. Understanding the biology of CLOW tumors is important for designing targeted...


Final Announcement: PrecisionFDA NCI-CPTAC Multi-omics Challenge Ends in Four Days

The NCI-CPTAC Multi-omics Enabled Sample Mislabeling Correction Challenge sub-challenge 2 closes on December 19 at 07:59:59 UTC. Just four days left to submit your computational algorithms. Remember...


CPTAC Contributes to In-Depth Profiling of CAR T-Cell Signaling

CAR T-cells, which are immune cells reprogrammed to fight cancer, are promising novel cancer therapies to treat certain types of tumors. But, the underlying biological pathways that lead to remission or toxicity are not fully understood. In a study published in...


PrecisionFDA NCI-CPTAC Multi-Omics Challenge Deadline Approaching

The NCI-CPTAC Multi-omics Enabled Sample Mislabeling Correction Challenge sub-challenge 2 closes on December 19 at 07:59:59 UTC. Just two weeks left to submit your compuational algorithms. Remember, if you did not participate in sub-challenge 1, you can still participate in sub-challenge 2.


PrecisionFDA NCI-CPTAC Multi-Omics Challenge Launches Sub-Challenge 2

The second data release for the NCI-CPTAC Multi-omics Enabled Sample Mislabeling Correction Challenge has launched!  If you did not participate in sub-challenge 1 (submission 1), you can still participate in sub-challenge 2 (submission 2).
