Award-Winning Commitment to Innovation: NCI’s CPTAC and PDC Team Recognized by FedHealthIT
At this year’s 8th Annual FedHealthIT Innovation Awards Ceremony, NCI’s Clinical Proteomic Tumor Analysis Consortium (CPTAC) team responsible for supporting the Proteomic Data Commons (PDC) received recognition for their commitment to excellence and innovation.
Programs from across the Department of Veteran Affairs, Military Health, Health and Human Services, and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services were nominated and selected by their peers to be honored for their innovative work. This year’s winners included NCI’s CPTAC team supporting the Cancer Research Data Common’s (CRDC) PDC.
The PDC represents NCI’s largest public repository of proteogenomic comprehensive tumor data sets. CBIIT’s Health Science Administrator Emi Casas-Silva, Ph.D., said, “The CPTAC and PDC team are honored to be recognized at this year’s FedHealth IT Innovation Awards and want to thank and acknowledge all those who have helped make CPTAC and the PDC a great success over the years.”
The PDC brings curated and standardized resources to members of the scientific research community through its next-generation interactive proteomic data portal.
Dr. Casas-Silva added, “A resource like the PDC is never finished, of course, and we look forward to continuing our efforts to increase the amount of data available through the PDC, as well as to integrate and harmonize with other repositories across NCI’s CRDC.”
