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.

Opportunities for Cancer-relevant Innovative Technologies with Transformative Potential

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) is seeking input from the community on identifying priorities with regards to supporting innovative technology development for cancer-relevant research. While the NCI provides support for technology development through a variety of mechanisms, it is important to understand whether or not these are sufficient for catalyzing and supporting the development of tools with significant potential for advancing important fields of cancer research or clinical care.

CPTAC Launches Proteomics Data Portal

The National Cancer Institute’s Clinical Proteomic Tumor Analysis Consortium (CPTAC) announces the launch of the CPTAC Data Portal. The Data Portal hosts all the data that is currently being produced by the consortium with additional historic data from CPTAC 1. The total amount of hosted data exceeds over 500 GB of RAW data in over 800 files.


Call for Applications – Clinical Assay Development Program

The NCI Clinical Assay Development Program (CADP) is requesting project applications from investigators seeking clinical assay validation resources.  These resources are designed to assist with the development of assays that may predict therapy response or prognostic behavior of a diagnosed cancer, primarily for use in clinical trials. Approved projects for the NCI CADP will be provided access to the Institute’s assay development and validation resources, including project management support.
