Additional Partners

American Association for Clinical Chemistry
NCI’s OCCPR collaborates with the American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) via a MOU to join forces on promoting and educating 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 in areas including sample collection; bioinformatics; experimental design; standardization of platforms.  Collaboration resulted in a summary report and mock 510(k) pre-submissions with FDA review comments published in Clinical Chemistry (see references 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5), serving as a springboard for the clinical proteomics community in the development of protein-based multiplexed In Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) tests.

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 and Common Data Analysis Pipeline (CDAP) used by the CPTAC teams and the broad research community.

National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute
NCI’s OCCPR collaborates with the Proteomics Center Program of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) via a MOU to foster greater cooperation through the sharing of reagents and protocols, confirmation of candidate protein markers, and to facilitate the development of bioinformatics standards in proteomics.

European Bioinformatics Institute
NCI’s OCCPR works with the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI) to coordinate bioinformatics standards development for clinical proteomics, e.g., EBI/OCCPR collaborated to develop international data standards with recommendations from the Human Proteome Organization Proteomics Standards Initiative (HUPO-PSI).
