International Cancer Proteogenomics Symposium

Event Day: 2nd March, 2023

Zoom Online

Hosted by National Cancer Center Tokyo, Japan

 Proteogenomics will further our understanding of the molecular backgrounds of clinical observations, promote the characterization of tumors, and generate the biomarkers for precision medicine. Integration of genome, transcriptome, and proteome data is the basic strategy of proteogenomics, and all clinically relevant information will be required to explore the significance of the integrated data. Thus, the international and multidisciplinary approach is the essential strategy to make the best use of proteogenomics data. The basic and clinical researchers should work together, aiming the common research outcome, that is, the benefits of patients with cancers.  


    I would like to deliver my warm greetings and heartfelt welcome to all Participants of  the International Cancer Proteogenomics Symposium. This workshop is designed to share the knowledge of cancer proteogenomics, and to facilitate the collaboration of researchers who are interested in the clinical applications of proteogenomic data. 

    In this century, the outcome of basic and clinical research in the last decades has led to remarkable progress in treatments, and the molecular targeted therapy, cancer genomic medicine and cancer immune therapy are widely used in the clincal practice. Multiple treatment options are available for single types of malignancies, and the patients with similar cancers demonstrate the different response to treatments. Therefore, we need modalities to capture the important characters of cancers for precise diagnosis, and optimize the therapeutic strateiges for individual cancer patients. Moreover, adequate therapeutic strategies are currently established only in the limited types of cancers, and novel therapy has long been desired for a considerable number of patients with rare cancers. More efforts will be requred for the patients who suffer from cancers. Cancer proteogenomics will offer the opportunities to develop novel diagnostic and therpeutic modalities.

    The International Cancer Proteogenomics Symposium will welcome participants from the basic and clinical researchers in academia or industry. The meeting will provide an excellent opportunity to exchange and share a wide range of the ideas for cancer proteogenomics toward clinical applications. The workshop will promote the international collaboration and cooperation among the researchres who aim the benefits of cancer patients.

We are looking forward to your participation in our Symposium.
