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.

Proteogenomics Research

Proteogenomics Research – On the Frontier of Precision Medicine

Learn about cancer genomics, how it is being integrated with proteomics (termed proteogenomics), and how proteogenomics is anticipated to improve precision medicine.

NCI-CPTAC DREAM Proteogenomics Challenge (Registration Now Open)

Proteogenomics, integration of proteomics, genomics, and transcriptomics, is an emerging approach that promises to advance basic, translational and clinical research.  By combining genomic and proteomic information, leading scientists are gaining new insights due to a more complete and unified...


CPTAC Investigators Identify Rogue Breast Tumor Proteins That Point To Potential Drug Therapies

For patients with difficult-to-treat cancers, doctors increasingly rely on genomic testing of tumors to identify errors in the DNA that indicate a tumor can be targeted by existing therapies. But this approach overlooks another potential marker — rogue proteins — that may be driving cancer cells...


Fred Hutch's Paulovich Laboratory to Lead Protein Assay Work for National Beau Biden Cancer Moonshot

The Applied Proteogenomics OrganizationaL Learning and Outcomes (APOLLO) network, which is a partnership among the National Cancer Institute, Department of Defense, and Department of Veterans Affairs, has tapped the Paulovich Laboratory at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center to create a panel...


PODCAST: Dr. Warren Kibbe & Dr. Henry Rodriguez: Working toward a cure for cancer

The Obama administration's cancer moonshot has brought three Federal agencies together.


At the United Nation Foundation's Social Good Summit, Vice President Biden Announces New Cancer Moonshot International Cooperation and Investments

This week, Vice President Joe Biden announced progress on his global vision for the Cancer Moonshot.  Announced were 10 new Memoranda of Understanding or Memoranda of Cooperation for international cancer research and care, as well as new efforts in the emerging scientific areas of precision...


University of Victoria Genome British Columbia Proteomics Centre Partners with CPTAC

University of Victoria Genome British Columbia Proteomics Centre, a leader in proteomic technology development, has partnered with the U.S. National Cancer Institute (NCI) to make targeted proteomic assays accessible to the community through NCI’s CPTAC Assay Portal (...

Proteogenomics Identifies New Biology in Ovarian Cancer and Insights to Diagnosis, Treatment

June 29, 2016 — In what is believed to be the largest study of its kind, scientists at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) led a multi-institutional collaborative project that comprehensively examined the collections of proteins in the tumors of 169...


First Large-Scale Proteogenomic Study of Breast Cancer Provides Insight into Potential Therapeutic Targets

News Release: May 25, 2016 — Building on data from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) project, a multi-institutional team of scientists has completed the first large-scale “proteogenomic” study of breast cancer, linking DNA mutations to protein signaling and helping pinpoint the genes that drive...
