The International Cancer Proteogenomic Consortium (ICPC)
Launched in late 2016, the International Cancer Proteogenomic Consortium (ICPC) was catalysed by the initial efforts of Cancer Moonshot, US. The ICPC is a scientific organisation that provides a forum for collaboration between some of the leading international cancer and proteogenomic research centres. The main focus of the ICPC organisation are the following:
- To encourage international cooperation and investment amongst nations in cancer research and cancer care.
- Bring together leading scientists for new efforts in precision medicine.
- Collaboration within the application of proteogenomic analysis in predicting cancer treatment success and to share data and results with researchers worldwide, ultimately hastening treatment progress for patients.
