The ACRF International Centre for the Proteome of Human Cancer
ProCan scientists at CMRI are analysing tens of thousands of examples of all types of cancer from all over the world to develop a library of information to advance scientific discovery and enhance clinical treatment worldwide.
This ambitious world-first research program aims to analyse the human cancer proteome on an unprecedented scale. To date, more than 39,000 tumour sample mass spectrometry runs have been completed. Well-annotated cancer samples are being sourced from collaborators and tissue banks worldwide. We are actively seeking collaborators with suitable cancer sample cohorts.
