A National Cancer Institute initiative
The Omic and Multidimensional Spatial (OMS) Atlas is one of several "U2C" Human Tumor Atlases (HTA) Research Centers of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Human Tumor Atlas Network, which emerged out of the Beau Biden Cancer Moonshot Initiative. The purpose of the construction of these "atlases" is to provide a more comprehensive understanding of the "ecosystems of tumors at the macro- and micro-level" by describing changes in cellular, structural, and molecular characteristics of human cancers as they progress over time.
The OMS Atlas lead investigators are: Joe Gray, Ph.D., Gordon Mills, M.D., Ph.D., Jeremy Goecks, Ph.D., and Christopher Corless, M.D., Ph.D. and our team includes collaborators from Harvard Medical School and the MD Anderson Cancer Center, who will work together to develop "maps" of human metastatic breast cancers.
Utilizes SMMART program infrastructure and data
Newly established in fall of 2018, it will take advantage of the clinical infrastructure in the SMMART program and support extensive characterization of tissues collected therein.
