The Center for Cancer Precision Medicine Process

  • CCPM process in three steps
  • The Center for Cancer Precision Medicine (CCPM) can provide the infrastructure needed to carry out your project efficiently and successfully. Our staff — whose expertise ranges from project management and sample collection to translational science and data analysis — can work with you to build and implement a process that achieves the goals set by your research proposal.

    The Five Pillars of Our Process

  • the five pillars of the CCPM process
  • 1. Systematic serial tumor specimen collection for research

    We collect and triage serial specimen collection from specified cohorts of patients for research purposes.

    2. Generating comprehensive genomic, molecular, and paired clinical data

    The samples allocated for research purposes can then be funneled into our pipelines for obtaining multi-omic and clinical data.

    3. Innovation laboratory to prove therapeutic response and resistance

    CCPM's Innovation Lab can help you develop technologies for high-throughput drug and genetic screens for understanding and inhibiting cellular transformation.

    4. Clinical computational analysis to enable discovery and interpretation

    Our team of computational biologists can analyze the generated data and help you identify new discoveries that will propel the field of precision medicine forward.

    5. Disseminating knowledge and discovery

    These illuminating discoveries will then be disseminated to the precision medicine community of researchers and clinicians to continue integrating the arenas of precision medicine and translational science.

    Our Process in Action

    CCPM can pursue a multitude of research avenues from a single patient encounter and surgical event:

  • CCPM research avenues
  • CCPM collects important clinicopathological-genomic data from each sample received. These data, coupled with data generated from our translational research pipelines, produce a comprehensive data set that attacks the proposed research question from a variety of angles. This allows other branching inquiries such as:

  • CCPM single cell profiling and analysis
