International Cancer Proteogenome Consortium


in the fight against cancer scientists have made incredible discoveries at the molecular level accelerating approaches for prevention diagnosis and treatment but today the battle is going global cancer knows no borders but imagine the possibilities if researchers worldwide could join forces by sharing data and knowledge to accelerate new approaches against this complex disease this quest is why 31 institutions in 12 countries have formed the International Cancer Proteogenome Consortium or ICPC with the common goal of improving outcomes and patients with cancer ICPC institutions are united by a foundation in proteogenomics an approach that combines proteomics with genomics allowing an insight into molecular signatures present in cancer that may not be recognized by a single disciplinary approach information collected by ICPC will represent the global diversity of people and the many types of cancers in different parts of the world ICPC sheds light on biological variations through precision medicine and accelerates our understanding of health disparities where cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide launched in 2016 ICPC was inspired by the cancer moonshot and modeled after the national cancer institute’s clinical proteomic tumor analysis consortium or CPTAC which has pioneered standardized workflows from patient sample collection and characterization to data sharing ICPC is emboldened by the vision of a world that collaborates by making data available globally so together researchers can better understand the complexity of cancer at the cellular level and develop new multi-omic approaches for cancer control after all if cancer knows no borders why should we please join us ICPC.cancer.gov US Department of Health and Human Services National Institutes of Health National Cancer Institute cancer.gov 1-800-4-cancer produced September 2018
