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, to advance proteome and proteogenome science and technology development through community resources (data and reagents), and to accelerate the translation of molecular findings into the clinic. This is achieved through extramural programs such as the Clinical Proteomic Tumor Analysis Consortium (CPTAC), partnerships with Federal agencies, collaborations with international organizations/institutions, and intramural reference laboratories such as the Antibody Characterization Lab and Clinical Proteomic Characterization Lab.

Illuminating Endometrial Carcinoma through Proteogenomics and Deep Learning

Recent strides in the field of genomics, exemplified by initiatives like The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA), have illuminated the genetic landscape of endometrial carcinoma (EC). The identification of four distinct EC...

Introducing a Suite of Pan-Cancer Multi-omic Papers from CPTAC

Researchers from the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) Clinical Proteomic Tumor Analysis Consortium (CPTAC) have produced a resource of global proteomic and post-translational modifications, whole genome and whole exome sequencing, miRNA and totalRNA sequencing, DNA methylation, imaging, and clinical...

Novel 64-Protein Signature Predicts Treatment Response in High-Grade Serous Ovarian Cancer

In an effort recently published in Cell, CPTAC researchers aimed to identify patients with high-grade serous ovarian cancer (HGSOC) who may not respond to standard therapies. At present, there is no way...

PepQuery2: Empowering Proteomics Researchers with Ultrafast Data Analysis

Recently published in Nature Communications, PepQuery2 is a powerful tool that facilitates fast and targeted identification of both new and existing peptides in proteomics datasets obtained from mass spectrometry experiments. It...

ETH Zürich (Switzerland) and United States National Cancer Institute Sign Extension of MOU for Proteogenomics Cancer Research

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) Clinical Proteomic Tumor Analysis Consortium (CPTAC) and the Switzerland International Cancer Proteogenome Consortium (ICPC) team at ETH Zürich are pleased to announce the formalization of an extension to their memorandum of understanding (MOU) for collaborative...

The MONTE Workflow: Enabling Deep Analysis of Sample-Limited Tissues

The limited availability of patient tissue samples poses a constant challenge for omics researchers, particularly in determining which analyses are feasible based on sample input requirements. Existing parallel workflows for multi-omic analyses have yielded valuable insights but are often restricted...

NCI Welcomes Renewed Commitments to the Cancer Moonshot with Taiwan

The United States National Cancer Institute (NCI) and Taiwan are pleased to announce the signing of an extension to their memoranda of understanding (MOUs) for proteogenomics cancer research with Academia Sinica and Chang Gung University. This extension marks a renewed commitment to the collaboration...

Integrated Glycoproteomic Characterization Reveals Molecular Features of ccRCC

Glycosylation is a ubiquitous type of protein modification that is associated with biological functions and diseases, including cancer. Often found on cell surface or secreted into circulation, glycoproteins can be leveraged for diagnosis and treatment.

Uncovering Cellular Architecture and Molecular Characteristics in Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma

Clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) is a common type of kidney cancer that originates from the cells of the renal tubules. Recent research has focused on identifying tumor-cell-specific markers to provide mechanistic insights into cancer etiology and support the development of novel targeted...

CPTAC Investigators Assess Coring and Laser Microdissection Techniques for Proteogenomic Analyses

Despite unprecedented advances in the development of targeted- and immuno-therapies for various cancer types, pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) remains a leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide. A comprehensive characterization of PDAC is critical for the development of new therapies...
