Proteogenomic Characterization of Small Cell Lung Cancer: A Pathway to Personalized Medicine

Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is an aggressive form of lung malignancy with historically poor prognoses and limited options for targeted treatment. The low availability of suitable biospecimens has also hampered large molecular characterization efforts.


Deciphering the Tumor Microenvironment: A Proteogenomic Pan-Cancer Analysis

The tumor microenvironment (TME) is a complex network which plays a crucial role in cancer progression and treatment responses. In a recently published Pan Cancer analysis, the Clinical Proteomic Tumor Analysis...


Advancing Personalized Treatment Strategies for Patients with Acute Myeloid Leukemia

Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) is a hematologic malignancy characterized by the rapid proliferation of abnormal myeloid cells in the bone marrow and blood. AML is known for its heterogeneity, presenting challenges in treatment and predicting patient outcomes.
