Colorectal Cancer Subtyping Consortium (CRCSC)

Colorectal Cancer Subtyping Consortium (CRCSC)

The CRCSC is a collection of colorectal cancer researchers and data scientists from 15 academic, pharmaceutical, and non-profit partners which represents the first effort to generate consensus cancer subtypes, taking a major step toward precision medicine in CRC. By comparing multiple classifiers, the consortium was able to identify four biologically distinct subtypes of CRC with unique clinical and molecular markers, a remarkable overlap considering different methodologies and datasets used by individual groups.
