Children’s Medical Research Institute – Results of ProCan’s work published in Nature Communications

Luminesce Alliance partner, The Children’s Medical Research Institute  has published an online paper in Nature Communications outlining its high-tech Cancer Research Program, ProCan.

ProCan is a cancer research project at Children’s Medical Research Institute (CMRI) in Westmead. Its goal is to build the world’s biggest public library of cancer proteomics information, which can then be used to help find the most effective treatment for each individual patient and mined by researchers to find targets for development of new precision medicine cancer treatments.

The published paper reports on how ProCan has achieved a world-first by developing a technology that can reliably analyse the proteins in cancer samples on a scale never attempted before.
