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.

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...

Paving the way for PDAC Precision Medicine

Despite extensive clinical and scientific efforts, pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) remains one of the leading causes of cancer-related deaths in Korea and around the world. Prior analyses of PDAC tissues have identified key genomic features of the disease, but proteomic signatures have not...

CPTAC Assays Used to Analyze Aggressive Brain Tumors

Diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas (DIPG) are a type of brain tumor that is extremely aggressive and have a historically poor prognosis. To improve these outcomes, the development of novel therapies and methods to measure their efficacy are critical.

APOLLO Researchers Uncover Novel Proteogenomic Features of Lung Cancer

The Applied Proteogenomics Organizational Learning and Outcomes (APOLLO) network is a cancer...

CPTAC Researchers Molecularly Stratify Aggressive Histopathologic Subtypes of Kidney Cancer

Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is among the ten most diagnosed cancers worldwide for men and women and comprises a wide array of histologically and genetically defined subtypes involving the kidney. Clear cell RCC (ccRCC) accounts for ~75% of all RCC cases and the majority of renal cancer-associated...

CPTAC Data Used to Develop Cutting Edge Tools for Illuminating the Druggable Genome

Recently, Dr. Bing Zhang and his team from the Lester and Sue Smith Breast Center at Baylor College of Medicine were awarded a two-year funding opportunity to develop Cutting Edge Informatics Tools for the NIH Common Fund program Illuminating the Druggable Genome (IDG).

CPTAC Researchers Document Differential Expression of Glycosylation Sites in Liver and Pancreatic Cancer

Core fucosylation (CF) of N-linked glycoproteins is linked with the functions of glycoproteins in many physiological and pathological processes. This feature has a high potential for use in the detection of cancer as well as the development of targeted therapies. For example, high levels of alpha-...

FDA and NIH Sign Memorandum of Understanding: Interagency Collaboration to Advance Proteogenomics Research

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) of the National Institutes of Health is pleased to announce the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) bolstering its ongoing collaboration with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This MOU provides a framework that will enable and encourage the...

Ex Vivo Drug Sensitivity Testing in AML: Improving Response Predictability Using Proteomic Measurements

Genetic heterogeneity amongst leukemic cells is a major contributor to low survival rates and poor clinical outcomes for patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). This diversity drives complex signaling pathways at the protein level which necessitate individualized treatment protocols for each...
