Additional Partners

American Association for Clinical Chemistry
NCI’s OCCPR collaborates with the American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) via a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to promote and educate the clinical chemistry community in the area of proteomic standards/technologies to further its application in clinical labs.

Food and Drug Administration
NCI’s OCCPR and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) formally collaborate (through a memorandum of understanding - MOU) to accelerate the translations of proteomics technologies and applications into clinical settings. This collaborative partnership has facilitated the FDA to be involved in the Clinical Proteomic Tumor Analysis Consortium’s discovery and confirmatory analytical workflows in the following capacities:

National Institute of Standards and Technology
NCI’s OCCPR collaborates with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to develop mass spectrometry-based technology assessment quality control tools used by the CPTAC teams and the broad research community.

NCI’s OCCPR collaborates with UniProt, the leading online protein reference library. In addition to searching for a protein-of-interest in UniProt, which includes cross-reference links to the NCI CPTAC Assay Portal for fit-for-purpose targeted assays, users now have cross-reference links to the NCI CPTAC Antibody Portal for cancer-associated renewable antibodies.

NCI’s OCCPR has a long-standing collaboration with the Human Proteome Organization (HUPO) that is centered in promoting every step in the road towards translation of proteomic measurements to patient care, from accurate and reliable measurements, to clinical and analytical validation of biomarkers, to regulatory compliance.
