Research Duration Start:
7 Janurary 2019
31 October 2019
Research Location LCP
Research Description This project is part of a program that will analyze the proteomic profile of Filipino NSCLC patients to discover biiomarkers and drug targets. This project will specifically assemble the clinical samples for proteomic studies on NSCLC.
Research Objectives The objective of the project is to properly assemble clinical cohorts from clinically well-defined individuals, collect and characterize clinical specimens, and consolidate patient and specimen data.
Research Beneficiary(ies) The main beneficiaries of this project in the health sector are healthcare providers and NSCLC patients in the Philippines. This project will also equip researchers and scientists with the knowledge and skills needed to perform the steps in proteomics-based biomarker discovery.
Research Accoplishments [CY 2018] Samples for the discovery candidate biomarkers for NSCLC and TKI Resistance; Samples for the discovery of candidate drug targets against NSCLC and TKI resistance; Medical institution (Lung Center of the Philippines) with established protocol for patient recruitment, speciment collection, patient follow up and data management (patient information and specimen data) compatible with downstream proteomic analysis; At least one (1) publication in a peer reviewed journal; Trained researchers and scientists on collection, archiving, and data management of patient data and specimens for proteomics analysis
